|ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE500CL and ZE551ML Coming Soon in the Philippines|
ASUS Philippines officially listed on their website the highly anticipated ZenFone 2 variants that are coming to the country next month.
The listing can be found at http://www.asus.com/ph/Phones/ZenFone_Products/ wherein two models have been added under the ZenFone category, namely ZE500CL and the ZE551ML. The former has only one variant, while the latter has three configuration - 2GB RAM/16GB ROM, 4GB RAM/32GB ROM and 4GB RAM/64GB ROM.
The obvious model that is missing is the ZE550ML, the one that surfaced and being sold several times in Lazada as well as in some third party sellers. In addition, the ZenFone Zoom is also nowhere to be found.
As of this writing, we do not have any information about the local pricing, but if you could recall, the ZE551ML with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM has an international pricing of USD199 or about 9000 pesos when converted to our currency. Meanwhile, the ZE551ML with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM was sold at Lazada for Php15,999. Lastly, the ZE500CL is basically a refresh ZenFone 5 A501CG, albeit with LTE connectivity, therefore we could expect it to sell around the same SRP, which is Php6,995.
