As expected, Asus invaded the Big Apple today and introduced the Asus ZenFone 2 to North America. CEO Jonney Shih showed off the handset on stage at Goham Hall. The Asus ZenFone 2 has already been released overseas, and will be available unlocked in two variations starting tomorrow at Amazon, NewEgg, B&H, Groupon and more. The device has a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution screen that has a 72% screen-to-body ratio, and the phone is powered by the 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580 SoC which includes a quad-core 2.3GHz CPU, and a PowerVR G6430 GPU.

The claim to fame for the Asus ZenFone 2 is the 4GB of RAM that the device comes with. We've shown you a video of the phone handling multitasking with five graphic intensive games without any lagging problem at all. For those power users who are constantly running down their battery, the ZenFone 2 will give you four hours of talk time with a ten-minute charge. You can power up the 3000mAh battery from 0% to 60% in just 39 minutes.

Asus' PixelMaster 2 is now on both the 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras. By merging pixels, the cameras can produce pictures with 400% lighter images in low-light conditions. The manufacturer also has improved on the flash, offering what Shih calls a DSLR flash experience that is 100 times brighter than LED. The phone is equipped with five 3D laser antennas, dual-SIM capabilities and supports LTE-A connectivity with carrier aggregation.

The Asus ZenFone 2 is priced at $299 and that is for the 4GB RAM model with 64GB of native storage. A variation with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage is priced at $199. That model is powered by the 1.8GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 CPU. Accessories include a $40 Flip Cover and a 10400mAh power bank for $19.
