ASUS ZenFone 5 already available in Malaysia — the notched phone you wanna get is priced at just RM1599!
If you have been eyeing the ASUS ZenFone 5 ZE620KL which was launched at MWC 2018, then you will be pleased to find out that you can already get it here in Malaysia. And it isn’t nearly as ridiculously overpriced as its predecessors, which is refreshing to see. Priced at just RM1599, the ASUS ZenFone 5 is well-equipped against the current crop of mid-rangers in the market.
Listed on Mobile2Go’s online store with 1 Year Warranty by Mobile To Go, it is understood that these aren’t official ASUS Malaysia units. Still, the price is definitely worth considering, with its rather decent specifications:

Pokdepinion: If ASUS Malaysia can undercut the price, or even just match the price and throw in 6GB of RAM, this is definitely replacing my ASUS ZenFone 4.
