Asus had showcased the Zenfone 2 at the recently held CES 2015. The smartphone had grabbed everyone's attention with its massive 4GB of RAM. Asus had then said the Zenfone 2 price would be around $200 (for 2GB version). However, the Taiwan launch will help clear bit of air about the Zenfone 2 pricing.
Asus has previously launched several versions of its Zenfone smartphone, perhaps to target each budget category possible. It recently launched a Zenfone 4 variant, Zenfone C, featuring a 4.5-inch display, Intel Atom Z2520 processor and 2,100 mAh battery.
