The contents, details, were better un-disclosed coz what happened later, was imaginably captivating since a lot of things came as a surprise. It was extravagant , but nothing which we didn't like, especially when Sonakshi Sinha helped us master the art of taking selfies on-stage(more on that later)
The goal was to launch - ZenFone 2 Deluxe, ZenFone Selfie, ZenFone 2 Laser, ZenPad 7.0 and ZenPad 8.0, and worldwide launch of ZenFone Max.

Mr. Jonney seemed to be thrilled about the fact and that India has been a resourceful market with already a lot of users.
Like any good business people , they were concerned about the bottom line.
The first among the launch was Zen Phone 2 Deluxe- All the Zen phones were compared with iphone 6 plus to give us an comparative idea.
ZenFone 2 Deluxe introduces a stunning new multifaceted polygonal design aesthetic to the ZenFone 2, offering beauty and power in abundance. ZenFone 2 Laser also includes laser auto-focus technology in its 13MP PixelMaster camera for clear, near-instant shots. ZenFone Selfie is the ultimate choice for selfies, with its twin 13MP PixelMaster cameras and a dual-color, dual-LED Real Tone flash at both front and rear.
Zen Phone 2 Deluxe - The crystal Technology- Also featuring gorgeous new multifaceted polygonal finish accentuating the signature ZenFone 2 Ergonomic Arc design.The special ASUS BoostMaster fast-charge technology for 60% capacity in just 39 minutes. As with all other ZenFone
2 models, ZenFone 2 Deluxe includes the latest ASUS ZenUI — the world’s first fully-customizable mobile interface — and Trend Micro™ security software for safe web browsing.

Among all these launches I was super impressed with the Zen Phone Selfie - Sonakshi Sinha took over the stage to demonstrate her love for selfies.

The front-facing PixelMaster camera has a huge 13MP resolution and an f/2.2-aperture, 88-degree wide-angle lens to capture more of every smile. The unique Selfie Panorama mode enables selfies with an outlook of up to 140 degrees, so everything and everyone becomes part of the shot.
ZenFone Selfie’s rear camera is just as advanced, with a large f/2.0 aperture lens for superior low-light shots.ZenFone Selfie also delivers superb macro photography that works on subjects as close as 6cm, plus rear laser auto-focus to compose shots in the blink of an eye, making it perfect for those capturing nature, birds, insects etc. I must say that the clarity of the pics is exceptionally good, proof check out the below selfies which we took backstage with Sonakshi Sinha, and you can see how the pics turned out so well while I took some crappy, shaky selfies with my iphone 6 which you can check out on my Instagram page !!!
