As per Mahesh Telecom, the smartphone runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system with Zen UI on top of it, but in Amazon India, it is listed with Android 4.4.4 KitKat which is a bit confusing. The Asus ZenFone Go (ZB500KL) follows the ZenFone Go (ZB450KL) smartphone which was launched a year ago in August and is priced at Rs 6,999.

Asus is going to finally revamp their ZenFone series at the MWC 2017 which will happen this month in Barcelona.

An Italian website Notebook Italia has leaked render image and specifications of the Asus ZenFone 3 Go hinting at its imminent arrival.

In comparison to the previous gen device, the rear camera lens moves to the sides, to sit just above the flash unit. There is no button seen on the rear or front, so presumably there won't be a fingerprint scanner on the smartphone.
