Asus has just taken the wraps of a brand-new smartphone, which it is calling the Pegasus 2 Plus X550.
Although its octa-core, 64-bit Snapdragon 615 is the kind of chipset we tend to find in mid-rangers, the Pegasus 2 Plus does offer a couple of features that often lurk around flagship level. The display, for example, is a full-HD affair with a resolution of 1080 x 1920, and with 3 GB of RAM, Asus appears to have pushed the boat out with this one.
The dual-SIM handset boasts a 13-megapixel rear-facing shooter along with an 8-megapixel offering for selfies, and there's a 3030 mAh battery keeping everything ticking over nicely. Software-wise, the Pegasus 2 Plus gets Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box -- the very latest strain of Google's mobile software -- and ASUS's custom Zen UI runs on top.
Colors include Rose Gold and White, and on the face of it, this is a very nice handset indeed. The fact that it's a dual-SIM device almost certainly means that it won't be available to much of the Western World, and as yet, we don't know how much this device will cost.
Given its slick appearance and substantial power, we'd definitely love to see a single-SIM variant for the likes of the United States, but we'll have to wait and see what Asus has planned.
