The Budget ASUS ZenFone C Goes On Sale In India

Comes with minor variations that separate it from the Zenfone 4 series.


The ASUS ZenFone C that was launched in Malaysia about two weeks ago has now arrived in India. More importantly, the handset that is pretty similar to the older ZenFone 4 models has even gone on sale on e-commerce website, Flipkart.

It is indeed all about the similarities here with the ZenFone C. The handset seems to be an updated version of the ZenFone 4 that was launched last year in India and was a sales success.

As for the updates, they are more to do with the camera that is now a 5 MP AF one and the battery that now settles at a hefty 2100 mAh capacity. We guess that just the battery life alone is a great reason to upgrade to this 4.5 inch budget smartphone. The battery of the earlier ZenFone 4 was indeed the handset’s only sore spot in terms of features.

The externals look exactly similar to the ZenFone 4 but as mentioned above, there are a few changes inside:

  • We get a 4.5-inch (854 x 480 pixels) IPS LCD display
  • Inside there is a 1.2 GHz, dual-core, Intel Atom Z2520 processor with 1 GB of RAM
  • The internal memory is 8 GB in capacity, but is expandable up to 64 GB via a micro SD card
  • There is a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash on the back and a 0.3MP (VGA) camera up front
  • We get the usual radios with 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0
  • The handset runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) with the Zen UI and is all powered by a 2100mAh battery

The ASUS ZenFone C is currently retailing on Flipkart for Rs 5,999 and only seems to be available in the black option.
