Asus ZenFone Live goes on sale in Europe for €1703
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.
