Taiwanese tech giant Asus celebrated its Zenfestival 2015 on August 06, 2015. People from mainstream media, bloggers and fans all were invited for launch of something special! The event started around 2 PM when MTV VJ and Bollywood actor Cyrus Sahukar came on stage and enthralled all with his tongue in the cheek comments!
The Zenfestival venue was beautifully decorated in purple color as you can see in the picture of main entrance of the event venue. As we entered the venue, we were greeted with digital grafitti wall, photo op zone with celebrity look alikes and Tattoo artist zone etc.
After entertaining us for a while, Cyrus Sahukar called upon two female artists who performed various gymnastic feats. Shortly after a band of drummers entered the venue and started playing bands in tandem with female gymnasts. All this was actually a part of “Broadway act of drummers”. After the drummer act was over Jonney Shih, Asus Chairman came on stage and announced 3 new devices, i.e. Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe, Asus Zenfone 2 Laser and Asus Zenfone 2 Selfie. Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha exclusively launched the Zenfone 2 Selfie for her fans, the device boasts of a 13-megapixel snapper both at the front as well as rear. Let us briefly look at what these 3 devices has on offer for us.
Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe:
The Asus Zenfone 2 is beast of a device with a 4GB RAM coupled with 2.3 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor and PowerVR G6430 GPU. One thing which caught our eyes (may be your as well!) is the back cover with diamond cut design, which is very comfortable to hold and looks pleasing. It features a 5-megapixel fixed focus wide view front facing camera along side a rear 13-megapixel camera with dual tome flash support for more accurate colors in low light conditions.
We fiddled a little with the Zenfone 2 Deluxe and it gave a buttery smooth experience. The display looks gorgeous and it responds very quickly to touch. The 5.5-inch full-HD display is protected by Gorilla Glass 4 covering.This dual SIM smartphone supports 4G LTE/3G/HSDPA in one of the SIM slot, while it runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
