With everything remaining the same, we are impressed that the additional price goes to the high-end Snapdragon 835 chipset, a blazingly fast octa-core processor, Adreno 540 graphics, an extra 2GB RAM which makes it 6GB RAM in total, and 10% more battery capacity with the 3600 mAh battery.

It will still be sporting the 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED, metal body, fingerprint sensor, Gorilla Glass 4 protection, the excellent dual 12MP primary camera, 8MP selfie camera, large 64GB internal storage and the latest Android Nougat 7.1 operating system to boot.

Who can resist an extremely fast performance, amazing dual primary camera, large storage, large battery capacity and the latest operating system coupled with an affordable price tag for a flagship.

Asus Zenfone 4 Pro ZS551KL is expected to be released in the coming months for 549 Euro or ~USD 645.
