Asus ZenFone Go 4.5 Smartphone: Entry level smartphones have a huge market in India as well as it is the most competitive segment in the smartphone business too. Asus on Monday added one more smartphone to this category by launching the Asus Zenfone Go 4.5. The Asus Zenfone Go 4.5 Smartphone has started on sale on 28th December 2016 in India itself and it will be exclusively available on the e-commerce website Flipkart at a price tag of Rs. 5,299.
The Asus Zenfone Go 4.5 is the smaller variant of the Asus Zenfone Go that was launched earlier in September this year. The newly launched Asus Zenfone Go 4.5 is a very basic smartphone and it sports a 4.5-inch screen as they have made it very obvious with the name. The 4.5-inch screen on the front is an FWVGA display and it has a resolution of 480×854 pixels.
Asus ZenFone Go 4.5 Specifications
Under the hood, the smartphone houses a MediaTek MT6580M SoC, which is a quad-core processor and built from 4 Cortex-A7 CPU cores (low power). It offers 1GB of RAM space and with that comes the 8GB of internal storage space that is expandable up to 64GB using a microSD card. In addition, the user will get 100GB of Google Drive storage for two years and free storage of 5GB for a lifetime from Asus.
In the camera department, the Asus ZenFone Go 4.5 houses a 5 MP camera on the rear and on the front it has just a 0.3 MP/VGA shooter. The device offers connectivity features such as 3G, Wi-Fi, and other standard features. The Asus ZenFone Go 4.5 comes running the Android v5.1 Lollipop out of the box with Asus’ own Zen UI 2.0 on top of it. The Zenfone Go 4.5 is fuelled by a 1600mAh battery.
Looking at these specs, the Asus Zenfone Go 4.5 seems lagging far behind other low-priced smartphones like the YU Yunique, InFocus M2 or the Lenovo A2010. Considering this, the latest Asus smartphone is going to have a tough time out there.
