Wow! Asus is in the process of improving its competitive position in budget phone markets. The firm’s last 2 products, the Zenfone 4 and 5 were hit in India and they’re still in much demand.
Today, Asus has just launched its newest phone Pegasus X002 in China for 130$ (around 8000 Rupees). This handset features an MT65732 64 bit 1.5 GHz Mediatek processor. This CPU was launched in February this year and it supports LTE connectivity. Thus, X002 is 4G enabled quad-core smartphone.
This low price segment device features 5.0 inches high-definition touchscreen display. It supports 16 million colors. It is available in 4 attractive color options. Asus Pegasus X002 has Zen UI and Android 4.4 Kit Kat operating system. It includes 8.00 megapixel back and a 5.0 MP front camera.
The above specs are just like LAVA Iris X5 and X1 but unlike these 2 phones, the rear camera of Asus Pega X002 can generate UHD quality image output. As of now, X002 connects with Chinese TD-SCDMA, TD-LTE and GSM networks.
Just as Asus Zenfone 5, this phone has a 16GB internal storage and 2GB RAM. Thus, graphics demanding mobile games like Asphalt Overdrive and GTA SAN Andreas are expected to run flawlessly. Other features of Pega X002 include a 2500 mAh battery, Mali GPU, Bluetooth, dual SIM, LED flash, 3G, WiFi and SD card support.
Some sources say that Asus Pegasus X002 is a Redmi 1s competitor but I don’t so. 1S is retailing for below 6K here in India and it’s still the top phone in markets. Pegasus will rival LTE versions of Micromax Yureka and Redmi Note. Note and Yureka will be sold from 30th of December onward.
Asus might launch Pega X002 in India by the end of next month (January 2015). Its online retail partner is expected to be Flipkart or Amazon. Guys share your thoughts on this phone with us. Are you impressed with the specs of X002?
