Last updated:

ASUS has unveiled its latest ZenFone 2 smartphone at CES 2015 today. ASUS said the phone has a 72-percent screen-to-body ratio, which means there’s more display on the body and fewer bezels. It also has a full 1080p IPS screen, PixelMaster technology that improves the shots snapped with its 13-megapixel camera and allows you to take better low-light photos that are up to 400 percent brighter than previous generations. ASUS Creative Studio also now includes mini-movie for quickly recording and sharing movies on social networks.

The phone is powered by a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580 processor that ASUS says is up to 3.1 times faster than some quad core competitors. GPU performance is about 8.1 times faster, ASUS said, noting that it also supports OpenGL 3.0.

It also features 4GB of RAM, which makes it the first smartphone available to consumers to sport that spec.

There’s a 13 megapixel rear camera and it is equipped with the PixelMaster technology, which according the company allows you to take better low light photographs that are up to 400% brighter than what the previous generation was capable of capturing. The 5 megapixel front facing shooter completes the camera department.

In terms of operating system, the ZenFone 2 runs with Google’s latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, albeit with the Asus ZenUI skin overlaid.
