HolidayBuyer's Guide

The new ZenFone Go is a budget handset powered by a quadcore 1.3GHz MediaTek processor that will be sold in Southeast Asia. In Singapore, it retails for S$179 ($130), which should give you a good indication of how much it will cost around the region. Asus hasn't said if it will sell it elsewhere around the world just yet.

The ZenFone Go will sport an 8-megapixel rear camera and has a removable 2,070mAh battery. Other specs include a 5-inch HD screen, 8 or 16GB of onboard storage and 2GB of RAM.

The ZenFone Go is a fairly beefy 10mm thick, but the placement of the power button and volume controls make them easy to reach.

The new ZenFone 2 Laser adds a bit more capability to the company's PixelMaster camera with laser autofocus capabilities.

Like the ZenFone 2, the power button is located at the top of the phone, which is quite an awkward position to reach.

Located next to the 13-megapixel rear camera and the dual-LED flash, the ZenFone 2 Laser's camera is capable of acquiring a focus lock in 0.2 seconds.

On the larger 6-inch model, the laser auto-focus is located on the left side instead.

The ZenFone 2 Laser will come in four versions: 5-inch, 5.5-inch and 6-inch HD screens, with one 6-inch model sporting a full HD display.

They will be powered by Qualcomm processors and will run Android Lollipop.

In Asia, the 5-inch model will retail for S$239 ($170), the 5.5-inch for S$279 ($200) and the 6-inch for S$329 ($240). Pricing for the 6-inch full-HD model was not revealed.
