China was left busy some hours back as Asus launched its latest device—the Asus Pegasus 5000. The Smartphone which came after many rumors and leaks is going to come in two variants. The first of the two is the 2GB RAM device while the second is the 3GB RAM device. The releases bear a stark contrast to most rumors that the device would only be released in a 2GB RAM variant while the internal memory would be the only section that will be coming in multiple variants.
The most outstanding feature of the device is the 4850mAh battery capacity that powers it. The battery has been touted to give over 48 hours run-time, but the company hasn’t given an idea of how long the device could run when left on standby mode. The company has kept mum on the possibility of unveiling outside China as it still targets the Chinese market. Sources have opened up that the company is considering unveiling the device in the large Indian market, after which is could think of conquering the other Asian markets.
The Smartphone is based on Android Lollipop 5.1 and it runs on ZenUI. The Smartphone sports a 5.5-inch wide full-HD display that is 1080×1920 pixels. The device also sports an IPS display and its screen is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The Asus Pegasus 5000 Smartphone comes powered by octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor that is 1.3GHz. The device comes with a 16GB internal storage space and the memory can be expanded by making use of the microSD expansion slot that can house a maximum of 32GB microSD card. Talking of its camera, the Smartphone comes with a 13MP rear-facing camera and LED flash along with f/2.0 aperture. The front of the Smartphone is also packed with a 5MP camera that serves all selfie needs.
The Asus Pegasus 5000 was also touted to support 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and USB connectivity options. It is also said to be 155×76.4x9mm in length and it weighs 176 grams. Coming early in the year, the Asus Pegasus 5000 Smartphone comes with so many improvements in specs, operations, stability, power and handling. These improvements on the Asus Pegasus 5000 have made many call it an ‘enhanced’ variant of the Pegasus 2 Plus which graced the market late last year.
If we recall that Asus started rolling out firmware updates for the ZenFone 2 Smartphones, we can’t help but conclude that the giant tech company hasn’t taken pleasure in watching other tech giants release improved specs and devices.
The company has continued to improve on its devices and with the new firmware update in the market, customers are enjoying there Smartphone’s features except for the fact that Asus didn’t add a support for Android for Work. The Asus ZenFone 2 users got firmware updates that have introduced fixes for Google Play issues, video sound issues, microSD card issues and even freezing phone issues. The ZenFone 2 also got updates that include PosteMobile NFC and Asus ZenFoneUI launcher which are now stable; the cell broadcast is also stable and the failure to share Photo Collage images via emails has also been fixed.
