$130 ASUS Pegas X002 takes on the Xiaomi Redmi 1s
Thought the Meizu Blue Charm Note was cheap? There's always cheaper - especially in China! Not long after Meizu made headlines with its announcement today, your old friends at ASUS brought forth the $130 Pegasus X002. Unlike Meizu's outrageous example of price to specs ratio, the Pegasus X002 is a modest, though compelling affair with a 5-inch 720p display, a 64-bit quad-core MT6732 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP main camera, a 5MP front cam, and a 2500mAh battery unit. The LTE-enabled smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat topped off with Asus' Zen UI. 

Not bad! We like what we're seeing, but who's going to hold back if they are offered the Meizu Blue Charm for just $30 more? Then again, the Pegasus X002 is designed to compete with the Xiaomi Redmi 1Sthe possible Meizu Blue Charm K52, and we think it's going to be really good at that. Unfortunately, the budget smartphone probably won't be sold outside of China, which doesn't mean you can't import it a less sweet, but fair nevertheless price.

That was supposed to be the name of the Company, but they decided to short it, from the letter "A" so it would be sorted higher in alphabetical lists and such.

I have a strong feeling that this phone doesn't have dual-SIM

In Portugal "Pegas" is synonymous of hookers

What about those "Pegas" in US? Do they have the same meaning?

Like I stated in a comment before tough times are coming to Xiaomi with a plethora of direct competitors. And thinking at the small.margins they have than will be a war by being dead or alive. My thought is all will be dead after this.

Was there a time when Xiaomi was an important company?
Thay have their place among low priced, new companies.

Redmi 2 already seems outdated. Good job Asus.

I have a good feeling about their new Zenfones.
