Flash sale: Zenfone 2 with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage to be priced $337 for a day

The Asus Zenfone 2 was impressive enough for a $200 or so phone when it was announced earlier this year at the CES expo in Las Vegas, but when we learned that it will have a version with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage memory, it quickly became a handset to keep an eye on.

Well, now that the Zenfone 2, in all of its 5" and 5.5" screen reincarnations, has been on sale for a while, it's time to whip up the discounts, concluded Asus, and offered the flash sale you can see in the screenshot above. The 5.5" Zenfone 2, with model number ZE551ML, which is the decked-out version with 4 GB of RAM, will be on offer for one day only, May 7th. How much? Well, it will go for just $336.99 on AliExpress, instead of the retail $449.32 price. 

That's a whopping $112 off, and might have something to do with Lenovo announcing the K80 with a 4 GB RAM/64 GB storage option for $290, but with a much larger, 4000 mAh battery, and an optically-stabilized camera. In any case, that Lenovo K80 version is still not on sale, so if you want to score the first phone with 4 GB of RAM, it doesn't get much better than this $337 deal, with a free shipping to most countries worldwide.

I stopped reading after AliExpress. It is almost a scam shopping website. Just check the disastrous reviews about it

I almost bought from AliExpress. One thing i learned is that buying an international version comes with too many risk. Waiting another month or 2 seems reasonable now.

This is the Chinese/Indian model which is basically useless to people outside of those countries since it only supports a few LTE bands. You guys need to do more research. Only the Worldwide, Taiwan and US models are worth getting.

The price of the same model with 4GB RAM & 64GB ROM is around $361 in India. Sales will happen soon.

Even at $449, that's an increadible deal. These are the devices that are going to really set fire to midrange competition if/when they make it to the US market.

Man. This really makes me wish I had bought an Alcatel Idol 3 when it was on its $199 preorder price. That phone would have been awesome for the price, but it was impossible to justify buying being I already have too many phones.... First world regrets.....
