Earlier this month, ASUS introduced its first-ever Android Go phone, the ZenFone Live (L1), in Indonesia. Although ASUS did not disclose any of the device's specs and features, the only thing ASUS guaranteed at that time was that Indonesia would be the first market to receive the device. Fast forward to the present and here we have ASUS again, only this time, the company has properly introduced the ZenFone Live (L1) along with all its specs and features as it goes on sale in the country.
As a refresher, the entry-level ASUS ZenFone Live (L1) sports a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 720pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9 packed inside a 5-inch form factor. The device comes with a Snapdragon 425 processor, a 5MP selfie snapper, and a 3000mAh battery.
It is worth noting that the new ZenFone Live (L1) arrives in two variants, an Android Go model and a standard model. The Android Go model packs an Android Oreo (Go Edition) OS, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, and an 8MP rear camera whereas the standard one comes with either 2GB or 3GB RAM, 16GB or 32GB memory, a 13MP primary shooter, and an Android Oreo platform with ZenUI 5 overlay.
The ZenFone Live (L1) is available in four color options, namely Midnight Black, Space Blue, Rose Pink, and Shimmer Gold. The 2GB/16GB version is priced at IDR1,399,000 (around PHP5,100), while the 3GB/32GB model is priced at IDR1,699,000 (around PHP6,000). On the other hand, there's still no pricing information available for the Android Go variant.
For those who want to get their hands on the phone. The ASUS ZenFone Live (L1) is tipped to land in other markets outside Indonesia and although it is a no-brainer for the price tag of the device to vary from market to market. The pricing detail announced in Indonesia more or less gives as an idea on how much the ZenFone Live (L1) might cost when it arrives in the Philippines. While there's no telling when the device might arrive, rest assured that it will have a budget friendly price.
