Originally, we knew this powerhouse of a phone would come with an Intel Atom Z3580 processor, a quad core chipset accompanied by PowerVR G6430 graphics. Now, there appear to be two more version of the 5.5 inch handset, one with a MediaTek CPU and the other with a Qualcomm. Focus Taiwan has it on good authority that the ZenFone 2 will come soon in Qualcomm and MediaTek versions.

The Qualcomm-based ZenFone 2 will be priced lower and it will come in the second quarter of the year, being targeted towards the mainstream market. And then the ZenFone 2 with MediaTek will hit markets where 3G phones are popular, like India. That version will arrive in the second half of 2015, as a sort of successor of the Intel model.

In the meantime the OG ZenFone 2 is coming to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, China and France next month. More countries will get it in April or May and Brazil for example will get it in June.
