Based from the photos released by ASUS Taiwan, it’s clear that there will be three distinct SKUs of the Zenfone 2 – the ZE551ML, which is the top of the line Zenfone model with the full HD display and the 4GB variant, as well as the 2GB memory variant that was officially unveiled during CES. This SKU will also get the same metallic brushed finish that we saw during CES and EIC Carlo Ople’s hands-on during MWC. The next is the mid-range Zenfone 2 – the Z550ML. This SKU basically has the same specs as the lower-end ZE551ML with 2GB of RAM, though its display gets downgraded to only HD from full HD plus it gets a matte finish back that’s reminiscent of the previous Zenfone 5.

The last SKU is the ZE550CL, which is the 5-inch, HD version that only has 2GB of RAM and the same matte back as the ZE550ML. Only this Zenfone essentially has the same processor that was present in the Zenfone 5, though now it has LTE capabilities.

The Zenfone 2 ZE551ML 2 (4GB) retails at NTD 8,990 (Php 12,625) and NTD 6,990 (Php 9,816) (2GB), while the ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE550ML will go for NTD 5,990 (Php 8,412). The cheapest Zenfone 2 retails at NTD 4,990 (Php 7,007).

Now that the prices and SKUs are out, are you getting a Zenfone 2 still?

    1. Cguro ung ngaun kc 13mp rear and 5mp front camera sya taz quad core, un nga lang single sim lang sya.

  2. ZE551Ml 32gig, 4gig ram, 12,625 mura parin kumpara sa mga flagship ng ibang brand at mas maganda pa, kilan ka kaya release nyan dito sa pinas nakahanda n pambili ko nyan,???????? 15k pa nga expect kung price my rollback pa pala ako, swerte ????????????

    1. same here, sulit pa rin siya to think na ung specs niya naachieve ng ibang brand at higher price points siya pang mid tier pa rin

  3. Well ang pinakamahal -Zenfone 2 ZE551ML 2 (4GB) retails at NTD 8,990 (Php 12,625 with 4GB ram and powerful GPU , top scorer ng Antutu -60K,,, 12K mura nayun compared sa S6 Edge Antutu 60K nasa 35K+ php… Great phone

  4. ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE550ML (P8,412) vs Meizu M1 Note (P7,990). Sir John pwede po head-to-head comparison please. Thanks

  5. still the most bang for the buck phone, 2.3Ghz 4G ram 3000 mAh, flagship specs na dual sim lte @ <15k panalo to..

  6. Sir i think you need to edit some specs.. mukhang na sobra na ang copy and paste 🙂 … as for the ZE550CL thats Dual core CloverTrail clocked at 1.6ghz 8mp back and 2mp front and it has 2500mah battery

  7. Lowest end Zenfone 2 isn’t really a good deal because of the old Clover Trail+ chipset. Now, the midrange one, I like. Makunat siguro battery niyan because of the efficient SoC + HD display.

  8. Sa brunei ako bibili nito lalo na pag hari raya, mura mga cellphones kasi festival nila and walang tax.. i got my zenfone 6 16g doon ng mura

  9. Siguro mas mataas ng konti ang price pag nirelease na ‘to.
    Yung 4GB siguro around 14K yan. Yung 2gb around 11-12k, tpos yung the rest will be around 7k-8k.

    Sana mag stay lang sila sa murang price.

  10. sir dba po galing sa LG G series ung Design ng zenfone 2? pati kaya yung mga magandang features ng LG G series nasa zenfone 2 ren like ung guest mode?

    1. mga sir ano ba pinag kaiba ng ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML pati ng ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE550ML Sa features ng CAMERA lang ba pinag kaiba nila kasi dun sa spec ang ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML ay 13-megapixel rear camera, f/2.0-aperture, 5-element, auto-focus lens with dual-color Real Tone flash
      5-megapixel front camera, f/2.0-aperture, wide-angle 85-degree lens with Selfie Panorama tapos yung ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE550ML ay 13-megapixel rear camera dual-color Real Tone flash
      5-megapixel front camera yan lang ba pinag kaiba nila nag camera lang ba..?

  11. Gusto ko sanang bumili nito pero may capacitive buttons kasi, panira lang sa view at sayang sa space.

  12. I just bought a Zenfone 2 ze550ml today which cost me 12,400 (pesos) the price is okay and upon checking on some other stores it’s the same price. all in all the phone itself is amazing I can’t say anything against it because I love my new phone.
