Asus has finally unwrapped things off on their new Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5 S. It’s the same device we feature after it was leaked. The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5 S inherits most of the Zenfone Selfie specs and features but positioned as affordable as the Zenfone Max.
For Php 8995 official price, the Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5 S packs 5.5-inch 720p HD up front (we wished for a 1080p FHD though) while internal hardware is powered by a powerful octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset we’ve seen to recent Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7 of Samsung. The CPU is paired with a 3GB RAM and expandable 32GB ROM, so far so good for its SRP.

Apparently the cameras on the Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5 S are much of the same as to the Zenfone Max we reviewed; 13MP on the rear with laser focus and 5MP for the front-facing selfie.
Design-wise, Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5 S looks similar to other Zenfone 2 models particularly the Laser.
Asus Philippines is already posting the Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5 S on their website, this pretty much tells that stocks are available right now.
