Asus ZenFone Live goes on sale in Europe for €170
The Asus ZenFone Live is an affordable Android smartphone showcased back in February at Mobile World Congress. However, the handset did not make it to market until May when it was officially introduced in India.
Well, it looks like Asus won't limit the ZenFone Live's availability to emerging markets in Asia. Starting this week, customers can purchase the entry-level smartphone in Portugal for €170. Other European countries are likely to get the ZenFone Live, too.
Advertised as “the world's first smartphone with hardware-optimized, real-time beautification technology, making it possible to share an even more glamorous version of yourself,” Asus ZenFone Live is aimed at users addicted to social networks.
The smartphone packs a 5-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture, LED flash and a 1.4-micron pixels sensor, which offers beautification filters and other advanced settings. There's also a 13-megapixel main camera on the backside, which features f/2.0 aperture.
On the inside, Asus ZenFone Live packs a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory (expandable up to 128GB). A 5-inch display with HD (720p) resolution is included as well, along with a 2,650 mah battery.
Sadly, the ZenFone Live won't be shipping with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, as Asus decided to include the previous Android 6.0 Marshmallow version.
