Asus Live with 2GB RAM and MediaTek Chipset launched in Brazil



Asus in a surprise move has announced a new handset in the Brazil, what’s surprising is that it’s not called Zenfone. Instead, it’s dubbed as Asus Live. Sporting what could be the first MediaTek chipset powered smartphone from the Taiwanese manufacturer. Model name, G500TG, the handset is priced for $210, which puts it in the mid range with other Zenfone handset priced around that. Available in three color variants, Blue, Yellow and Magenta, it has the plastic build.

The Asus Live packs a 5-inch 720p display, which is not the best in mid-range, as companies are now offering up to full HD displays in his range. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6580 processor, which clocks at 1.3GHz, it is the quad-core chipset that is in direct competition to the Snapdragon 410 processor. Alongside the 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB eMMC Flash storage, this can also be expanded up to 64GB via microSD card slot.

The device runs on the ZenUI that is found on most Asus smartphones, then again its first non-Zenfone device from company, so it might have some different set of features and apps pre-installed in the system which is based on the Android Lollipop 5.1 version. In terms of the camera department, it has an 8-megapixel image sensor on the rear while a 2-megapixel camera module on the front. The back is accompanied by a LED flash and its autofocus unlike the front module, although, they both uses the PixelMaster technology that the Taiwanese giant has being using on its Zenfone smartphones like original Zenfone 5, Zenfone 2, Zenfone 2 Laser and Zenfone Selfie.

Asus Live - Yellow

Now moving on to the connectivity options, it doesn’t support the 4G LTE network, instead it sticks with old standard, the 3GB connection. Well, it isn’t as old it is, but slowly the 4G has become a standard network that offers much faster and reliable connectivity. Although, the 4G scene in the country might not have take much leap as it has in India for the past year. And that might be the reason for company to not offer 4G support on this handset. It has the dual SIM slot, though, and both can provide 3G connections. Other usual connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and microUSB 2.0.

In a related news, Asus would be launching its camera focused, Zenfone Zoom, in India next week. We would be covering the event live, so stay tuned in on our website to know more updates regarding Asus launches.
