ASUS released their latest entrant to the Zenfone series earlier today, the Zenfone GO, priced at an affordable INR 7,999. Equipped with Dual-SIM support and 100 GB of free Google Drive storage, the Zenfone GO should find quite  a few takers with its traditional design and features that complement the accompanying hardware.

Available in Black, White and Red, the Zenfone GO comes with two variants, one with 8 GB of storage and the other with 16 GB and both can be expanded via microSD upto 64 GB. Powering the device is a quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex processor on a Mediatek MT6580 chipset and 2 GB of RAM.

On the back of the Zenfone Go is a 8 Megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash whereas the front has a 2 Megapixel camera. The 5 inch LCD display has a 720 x 1280 resolution and has an anti-fingerprint coating to keep it smudge-free. Running on ZenUI which is based on Android Lollipop 5.1, the phone comes with an Accelerometer, e-Compass, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor and is powered by a 2070 mAh battery.

Side The Zenfone Go also comes with a protective Flip-case that not only protects the phone from scrapes and scratches but also lets you view important information without you having to open or lift your phone which is certainly a nice-to-have feature. Priced at INR 7,999, the device is available at all ASUS exclusive outlets, leading retail stores and on Flipkart as well.
