It will be available in China starting April 30 and will come in black, silver and red variants. There's no word yet if there will be an international release.

ZenFone 2 Killer?

In the battery life department, maybe yes as this packs a bigger battery capacity at 4,000 mAh. However in the performance side, the most powerful version of the ZenFone 2 has a more powerful processor compared to this. Although I'm sure that performance wise this won't lag that much compared to the pricier most powerful version of the ZenFone 2. I'd say that this could be a great alternative to the ZenFone 2 if you have less budget. In the end, more competition, the better.

As usual, we are hoping that this will be available in the Philippines too. Calling Lenovo Philippines attention. We want this phone! :)
