This is the most concrete date for the eagerly awaited Asus Zenfone 2 to come here in the Philippines so far. Online shopping site Lazada will sell the series of smartphones on May 10.

Asus previously revealed an April launch of the Zenfone 2 in the country. However, this might be pushed to a few days before May 10. Hopefully, all four models will be available.

There are four variants of the Asus Zenfone 2. There’s the 5-inch model codenamed ZE500CL, a 5.5-inch HD designated as ZE550ML and two variants called the ZE551ML that differs on RAM at 2GB and 4GB.
