Asus on Tuesday launched its affordable 64-bit 4G LTE smartphone in China, dubbed the Pegasus X002, at CNY 799 (approximately Rs. 8,000).

The dual-SIM (4G+ 2G) Asus Pegasus X002 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Zen UI on top. It features a 5-inch (720×1280 pixels) display and is powered by a 64-bit quad-core 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6732 processor coupled with 2GB RAM.

The Asus Pegasus X002 sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera. The 16GB internal storage on Pegasus X002 is further expandable via microSD (up to 64GB).

Connectivity options on the Asus Pegasus X002 include 4G TD-LTE, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi direct, GPRS/ EDGE, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, and Micro-USB. The handset is backed by a 2500mAh Li-Ion battery and comes in four colour options – Black, White, Red and Gold. The launch was first reported by GizmoChina.

Notably, the name Pegasus for the smartphone is the original inspiration behind company’s name Asus.

“ASUS takes its name from Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology that symbolises wisdom and knowledge,” writes company.

Earlier this month, the company had launched the lite variant of its popular ZenFone 5, dubbed the ZenFone 5 (A502CG) a.k.a ZenFone 5 Lite, in India. The dual-SIM Asus ZenFone 5 (A502CG) runs Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box with Zen UI and features a 5-inch qHD (540×960 pixels) display.

Since the handset is a lite-version, it is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2520 processor with Hyper-Threading (Threads-4, Cache 1MB,) coupled with 1GB of RAM as opposed to the ZenFone 5 (A501CG) – which
comes with a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor with Hyper-Threading that’s coupled with 2GB of RAM.
