A new handset manufactured by Asus called the Pegasus X005, has been certified in China by regulatory agency TENAA. Traditionally, this is the last stop new devices in China make before becoming official. The phone carries a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. Under the hood, an octa-core 1.3GHz CPU drives the unit, which will have 2GB of RAM inside. The model comes with 16GB of native storage, and a 32GB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional memory.

A 13MP camera can be found on the back of the device, while a 5MP front-facing camera snaps selfies and handles video chats. Android 5.1 is pre-installed, with ZenUI running on top. Weighing 177 grams, the Pegasus X005 is 9mm thick. It supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS connectivity, and will be available in Blue, Gold and White. Pricing and availability is unknown at present.

Earlier this year, the Asus Pegasus 2 Plus X550 was unveiled, carrying an FHD (1080 x 1920 resolution) display of unknown size. The Snapdragon 615 SoC powers the handset which is stuffed with 3GB of RAM, a 3030mAh battery, a 13MP/8MP camera combo, and Android 5.1.1.
