ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE available in Singapore on August 30 from S$249

 

Three months after launching the ZenFone 5 (3G) in Singapore, ASUS today announced that the 4G variant will be available for purchase on August 30. Unlike the 3G counterpart, the ZenFone 5 LTE is available in three models with different retail prices.

  • ZenFone 5 LTE with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage - S$249 (only available on the ASUS Online Store)
  • ZenFone 5 LTE with 2GB RAM and 8GB internal storage - S$269
  • ZenFone 5 LTE with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage - S$299 

Do note that the ZenFone 5 LTE does not have dual-SIM support. It comes in four colors: Charcoal Black, Pearl White, Cherry Red and Champagne Gold (only for 16GB model). You can purchase the ZenFone 5 LTE at all ASUS brand stores, Best Denki, Challenger, Newstead stores, ASUS Official Online Store and Lazada. You also can sign up with a two-year contract at all three telcos. 

If you are wondering which model to buy, we recommend going for the model with 2GB RAM. As stated in our review of the ZenFone 5 (3G) with 1GB RAM, the user experience was sluggish at times. However, this issue was not present when we tested the ZenFone 5 (3G) with 2GB RAM. Below is an overview of the specs of the ZenFone 5 family:
