ASUS has announced a new phone in its popular Zenfone series. The new phone dubbed the Zenfone Pegasus 3S offers some intriguing features with spacious amounts of RAM, a humongous battery and a normal-sized display which might make it the perfect midranger for the price.
The Pegasus 3S comes with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box, which for some reason still seems like a privilege after some time. It is a customized variant, of course.
The display on the front is a 5.2 inch IPS panel and comes with 720p resolution. Below the display, you have a fingerprint scanner integrated in the home button. The display has a 2.5D curved glass. The display resides in a full-metal body. Above the display is an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
Under the hood, you get an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor with 3 GB RAM and either 32 or 64 GB worth of expandable storage. The 16 MP camera on the back comes with f/2.0 and PDAF. The phone comes with Asus’s PixelMaster technology which can increase megapixel count and offer better pictures in very low light conditions while a dedicated HDR Pro mode has been added as well.
Connectivity includes dual-SIM, VoLTE, GPS and more, while the battery capacity is set at an astounding 5,000 mAh.
Asus went for all the important features a normal user needs instead of overloading the device with processing power. So unless you play some graphics intensive games, this is the right device for you in every regard.
The phone will be launched this month for a price of $290.
