Despite having a successful year in 2015 with its flagship devices, Asus has shown that it won’t ignore devices in the mid-range. This is probably because that’s where the bulk of its income comes from.

The company had enjoyed impressive sales with the ASUS ZenFone 2 flagship smartphone and its lower-priced derivatives like the ZenFone 2 Laser. Asus is also expected to launch its ZenFone 3 flagship smartphone later this year.

Despite these flagship successes, the company is yet to stop producing mid-range devices. Recently, the ZenFone Max, a mid-range smartphone which comes with a massive 5,000 mAh battery, was launched. Asus has followed this up by launching another mid-range device in China, called the Asus Pegasus 5000.

Chinese regulator TENAA last month had reportedly certified a Pegasus X005 for sale in the Asian country. Indications have shown that Pegasus 5000 is the commercial name of the device.

The Asus Pegasus X005 features a 5.5-inch display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It also runs Android 5.1 Lollipop Operating System according to the certification.

There’s a Mediatek MT6753 SoC powering the phone, coupled with an integrated octa-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz. The handset is offered in two different memory variants.

There’s a 2 GB RAM version that comes with 16 GB of internal storage and costs 1,299 Yuan (about 40,000 Naira). The more premium 3 GB RAM version carries a significantly higher price tag of 1,799 Yuan (approximately 55,000 Naira).

The Asus Pegasus 5000 sports a 13-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera meant for selfies and video calls. It has Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, LTE connectivity, and carries a powerful 4,850 mAh battery,

The smartphone will be made available in two color options – white and gold. Although the Pegasus 5000 at the moment is a China-exclusive device, it may launch in other areas in the near future.
