Asus has unveiled the Pegasus 2 Plus handset in China as a successor to last year’s Pegasus X002. This is one of the first device’s Asus has unveiled since they’re big ZenFone brand push at CES earlier this year.
The smartphone will sport a 1920 x 1080 5.5-inch display, a Snapdragon 615 64-bit Octa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, and a 3,030mAh battery to power it all. It’ll feature a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Owners will find Asus’ ZenUI atop of the latest flavor of Android, 5.1.1.
What’s particularly interesting about the Pegasus 2 Plus is that it doesn’t have any capacitive buttons on the body of the device, everything is on-screen. Asus plans on launching the device in White and Rose Gold in Asian markets beginning in September, but no more details have been shared as far as availability and pricing go.
Asus made a profit on its smartphones for the first time with the ZenFone 2, with momentum to continue late in the year. Hopefully the Pegasus 2 Plus will help propel the Taiwanese-based company forward in that regard.
