It was a surprise to reach Nehru Stadium and realize the magnitude of the event. With 2,000 Zen fans excited, in the real sense of the term, I was glad to find my fellow bloggers, register and walk towards the auditorium.

The organizers had to handle a lot of commotion for free gifts, lunch and demos in general…but what can I say, this is Delhi!

Starting off, we had to see a great performance from a dance group, I posted a snippet on Twitter, but you can watch the brilliant drummers here.

The best and the most entertaining part of the show was ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih. Bright, excited, he really gave us a surprise with not 1 but 6 new products.

Let’s start with the launches, and this one is my favourite launch:

Asus-Zenfone-Selfie-official-in-India

ASUS Zenfone Selfie
This was the phone , I was looking forward too. It’s not just me but Sonakshi Sinha came out at this moment too. After all, we are all in the #selfie era and as a blogger, I am always on the lookout for good cameras. So let’s start with the camera features and then go to the phone.
Primary Camera: 13 MP
Secondary Camera: Same as the front, 13 MP with 1080p. It also has autofocus capabilities.
Resolution: 4128 x 3096 pixels
Laser autofocus, Dual-LED (dual tone) flash
Other features I like: You can take a selfie by drawing an S on the phone which really saves time to unlock a phone, go to the app etc. It detects the face and location on its own. Panorama and HDR shoots are also possible, so I am definitely interested in buying this.

Display: 5.5 inch screen with Gorilla Glass 4 (this makes me a bit calmer about my clumsy hands)
OS: Android OS, v5.0 (Lollipop)
Processor: Quad-core Cortex-A53 & Quad-core Cortex-A53
RAM: 3 GB
Storage: 16 GB/ 32 GB, additional external storage available
How much? Rs 15,999, to launch soon

ASUS also launched two new tablets, Zenpad 7.0 and 8.0.

Zenpads seem like a great, affordable options for Rs 11,999 and Rs 14,999. They are ultra light (250 g and 350 g) and if I am saying this, then its true! I like this because it makes Zenpads perfect for travel, events and work. Having looked at the above specifications, you’d probably know the kind of technology ASUS has to offer, so I am only going to point some differentiating factors.

Of course, the display: 7.0 is 7 inches with 1280 x 800 pixels resolution whereas 8.0, as the name suggests is an inch bigger with the same resolution. I think if, like me, you like watching a lot of videos when you’re at home, or even on the go, 8.0 is a better match only because it has a front-facing speaker along with the usual requirement like USB slots. Now there are 4 variants among Zenpads 7.0 and 8.0 but the cameras (front and back) are between 5 MP and 7 MP: a little lesser than I expected from ASUS (because it’s ASUS). These are going to be launched in about a month, so if you were planning on buying a tab, or a pad, I’d suggest you try this and then make up your mind.

During the show, team ASUS set up kiosks so that all the attendees could get their hands on the latest launches, and try it out for themselves. I thought it was pretty cool since a lot of products will be launched a month later.
