Unknown Asus ZenFone spotted at Bluetooth SIG, sports entry level specs

Unknown Asus ZenFone spotted at Bluetooth SIG, sports entry level specs
Last year, Asus capitalized on its presence at CES in Las Vegas by introducing a whole bunch of new devices, among which a trio of devices under the then announced ZenFone line. From what we've been hearing as of late, Asus is prepping at least one new ZenFone for CES 2015 (January 6-9 in Vegas). But while the company's teasers have been mostly bare bones in terms of specifics, a listing spotted by Android Police over at Bluetooth SIG reveals quite a bit of information about a device codenamed ZC451CG.

The cryptic device in question is actually not quite as mysterious as its model number would suggest, as the document in question reveals that it "is the successor of hot selling smartphone model- ZenFone". If that wasn't enough, the entry also includes specifics, such as a 4.5-inch display with a lowly resolution of 480 x 854 (a depressing pixel density of just 208 ppi), an unspecified dual-core Intel processor, and 1GB of RAM. Furthermore, expect a 5-megapixel main camera on the back, "complemented" by a 0.3-megapixel selfie snapper. The ZC451CG will be powered by a 2,100 mAh juicer and Android 4.4 KitKat, likely with ZenUI slapped on top.

With the above specs in mind, it seems likely that the dual camera device Asus is actively teasing us with is an altogether different model. In other words, we could have something along the lines of a replay of last year, with Asus releasing multiple ZenFones that stretch across the price (and size) spectrum. Either way, it won't be long until we know for sure – January is just around the corner.

Just slap Android One on the cover and call it a day. These are 2011 specs!

but they used to cost 700 $ in 2011 and in 2014 they cost 100 $ that's the difference

I do see how Samsung is going to make such a nice phone for little money. Xiaomi, Motorola did but not Samsung. This will eat up the market share on Samsung profit once again.
