As a part of the Zenfone 3 family, Asus has released an entry-level model which vaguely resembles the Zenfone 3 but really has very little to do with the Zenfone 3 at all. The usual spec table can be found below.

  Zenfone Pegasus 3
SoC 1.3 GHz 4x Cortex A53
MediaTek MT6737
RAM 2/3GB
NAND 16/32GB + microSD
Display 5.2” 720p LCD
Network 2G / 3G TD-SCDMA/WCDMA / 4G LTE-TDD/FDD
Dual SIM
Dimensions 149.5 x 73.7 x 8.6mm, 158g
Camera 13MP Rear Facing f/2.2
5MP Front Facing f/2.0
Battery 4100 mAh (15.6 Whr)
OS Android 6 w/ ZenUI 3.0
(At Launch)
Connectivity 802.11b/g/n, BT 4.0, USB 2.0, GNSS
Fingerprint Sensor Capacitive

As you might expect, this model is mostly targeted at China and isn’t sold outside of China at all, but may come to other regions in the near future. There’s nothing really special here but the relatively large battery should help with battery life unless there’s something glaringly wrong from a power efficiency perspective. It will be going on sale soon at 1300 RMB for the 2/16GB model and 1500 RMB for the 3/32GB model, or approximately 200 and 230 USD respectively. Colors available include gold, rose gold, silver, and gray.

    I believe he's referring to the Ferrari model "LaFerrari" which would translate into Ferrari the Ferrari. The Enzo Ferrari was called the Enzo, very different models about 10 years separated. Reply

    Instead of pushing forward Asus decided to tank its phone sales this cycle. They try for 5minutes and then they give up. At this pace they will go down with the PC.

    "this model is mostly targeted at China and isn’t sold outside of China"

    Self-fulfilling prophecy much?

    BTW it's a quad core MT6737 not octa core. http://www.mediatek.com/en/products/mobile-communi...
    Don't just copy paste from sources that just copy paste from much worse sources, check the facts. 99% of the so called tech sites have no filter nor can they be bothered to check facts.

    Asus China is listing the specs http://www.asus.com.cn/Phone/ASUS-X008/specificati...
