Recently Asus hosted the Asus ZenFestival 2015 at the Jawahar Lal Nehru stadium and I was lucky to get a sneak peek .The most special thing about this launch was that the Asus Chairman was himself coming down to launch their new offerings to the Indian market ,which is their largest consumer so far.
The venue was well decked up for the event and the place was teeming with a huge crowd already when I reached .
Cyrus Sahukar the MC for ZenFestival 2015 did not stop making us laugh through his ripostes and jokes .In fact he kept the atmosphere crackling and charged up throughout the evening .
Guess who came down personally to launch the Asus new zenlaunches in India , it was non other than the Asus Chairman Jonney Shih .Don’t be fooled by his salt and pepper hair , this man has the infectious enthusiasm of a youngster and his energy filled the whole auditorium too .
The beautiful actress Sonakshi Sinha , came to launch the new Zenfone Selfie and delighted her superfans by clicking selfies with them .
Zenfone Selfie is the ultimate tool for all you selfie buffs out there.
Firstly it comes in four beautiful colours – Pure White /Aqua Blue/Chic Pink and the hairline design comes in Glacier Grey /Sheer Gold/Glamour Red .
Other than having all the other Zenfone 2 standard features this one boasts of a both Rear and Front 13 MP pixelmaster camera !
The front camera has Selfie Panorama upto 140 degrees which means a lot more people can be squeezed in a selfie .Real time beautification mode ,Low Light Mode ,Night mode etc .
I was really impressed with the pictures that the Zenfobe Selfie clicked in the Night Mode and Low light Mode . A comparative demo showed that the pictures came out better lit and defined than the iPhone 6 even !
Among the other new launches were the following too
1. The Zenfone 2 Deluxe

3. The Zenpad
The Asus ZenPad has a 76.6% screen to body ratio thus giving a better viewing area compared to other 8 ” tablets .equipped with blue light filter to reduce eye fatigue and wide angle viewing experience , this one is very comfortable on the eyes .Its true2life technology is the same that is used in high end TVs to give incredibly realistic images with accurate contrast , sharpness and detail.
Not just that it is a stylish accessory with easily changeable back covers in fine leather pattern and attractive colours which include Black/White/Aurora Metallic /Blue and Orange .
Also introduced were the Zen accessories – the credit card sized 100050 mAh ZenPower power bank ,the ZenFlash which can transform a Zenfone 2 into a high end professional camera and Lolliflash which when attached to the Zenfone will enhance the natural skin tone in low light Selfies .
Finally a word about Zenny .Zenny the owl is the mascot for Asus and was a completely adorable creature .He answered the queries of the twitterati but not before breaking into a jig with the sporting Asus Chairman Mr. Jonney Shih .He was pretty popular among the bloggers and Asus fans for clicking selfies too.
After the launch ,snacks and lunch were served and there was almost a mad rush for them .In fact we hought pof taking some pictures first and then going for the lunch but by the time we were done with the pictures , most of the food was gone !
On the positive side we got to take a good look at close quarters of the newly launched models at the display zone .
I must say I came home mightily impressed with the new ASUS Zen launches .
They can give their premium rival (the Iphone 6 ) a run for their money with their breakthrough features and competetive prices !
