ASUS Prices Zenfone Selfie In India, Starts At Php 11.5K

ASUS-ZenFone-Selfie (1)

We finally get an idea of how much the Selfie will go for

Along with three new smartphones, ASUS also launched their ZenFone Selfie during their Zenfestival event in India today. The Selfie, despite being announced back in COMPUTEX in June has not been officially launched in any other territory until now, so we had no idea just how much the new phone will go for.

ASUS Zenfone Selfie specs

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor
  • Adreno 450 GPU
  • 2GB/3GB RAM
  • 5.5-inch full HD display with Gorilla Glass 4, 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 16GB/32GB storage,expandable via microSD up to 64GB
  • 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, dual LED real-tone flash, laser AF
  • 13-megapixel front camera with f/2.2 aperture, wide angle lens, dual LED real tone flash, selfie panorama
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS
  • Android Lollipop
  • 3000mAh battery

That obviously changes today – the Selfie starts at just INR 15,999, or around Php 11.5K for the base version. At that price that puts the Selfie right between the 1.8GHz, 2GB RAM, full HD Zenfone 2 and their low-end ZE500CL. It’s an interesting price strategy to say the least; one that we’ll have to see in action here in the PH when the device officially launches here in the near future. Obviously the converted price isn’t the final price when the phone arrives on our shores, but it’s a good starting point for people who want to buy one nonetheless. It’s also important to note that ASUS has not announced yet the price of the higher-end version of the Selfie that has 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

  1. Bakit kasi hindi pa pagsama-samahin ng asus sa iisang model ang 4gb ram, 13mp selfie cam, 128gb storage at 5000mah battery. Zenfone 2 delselmax. Kahit 24k siguradong may papatol don.

    1. Tingin naisip din yan ng Asus. Malay natin may ganun tlaga tpos eh head to head nila sa Note 5 & S6 Edge plsu ^_^.

    2. ganun din gawa ng nokie dati. wala sa iisang phone lahat ng magandang features. kaso wala naman sila competitor noon. e ngayon dami compete. dapat all out na lahat ng features

  2. Agree kay archie. Unti-unti na silang tumutulad sa Lenovo at Samsung na nagsspam ng iba’t ibang model sa bawat market segment, tas ica-cannibalize lang naman ang isa’t-isa.

    IMO, it’s about time na may Android phone maker naman na sumunod sa yapak ng Apple where Apple really shines: Marketing, post-sales support and updates. I could be wrong, pero kung gnaw nila yung sinasabi ni archie, kahit 25k pa presyo ng ZF2 with those specs, malamang kainin nila nang buhay ang Samsung. Lalo na kung sa isang model lang per market segment ang nilalabas nila. In theory, mas matututukan nila ang mas focused and taylor-fitted na post-sales support and updates pag ganun. 😛
