ASUS Zenfone 2 May Come in More Than One Size at Launch

When ASUS unveiled the Zenfone 2 earlier this month there was only one option, a 5.5-inch phablet with some impressive hardware under the hood. However, it looks like the company could be planning to offer a more manageable 5-inch version as well when it finally hits the market in March.

The news comes from Chinese site Sogi, though there’s little evidence to back up these claims. The report seems to suggest the 5-inch Zenfone 2 might not offer the full 4GB of RAM included with the 5.5-inch model, and it’s possible other specs could be cut as well. We’ll just have to wait and see, but that does line up with the company’s specs during CES, which suggested models with 3GB and 4GB of RAM will be available.

The 5.5-inch Zenfone 2 comes equipped with a 1080p display, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3000mAh battery, 64-bit Intel Atom processor and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. It shouldn’t be too tough fitting all that into a 5-inch handset, though ASUS may want to offer the smaller variant at a lower price as well.
