The Pegasus series phablet will feature a 5.5-inch sized 1080 x 1920 Full HD display, with a pixel density of 401 pixels per inch. Under its hood, the phablet packs a 1.3 GHz octa-core chipset, most likely a MediaTek one. As some of you may be aware, TENAA doesn’t usually list the make of the SoC powering a smartphone, only the number of cores present and the clock speed. There will also be 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage, which can further be expanded by up to 32GB using a microSD card. At the rear, the Pegasus X005 packs a 13 megapixel primary shooter with an LED flash. For taking selfies and video calls, you have a 5 megapixel front-facing camera, fairly standard for a mid-range smartphone now.
The device measures 155 x 76.4 x 9mm and is slightly on the heavier side at 177 grams. That could be due to a large capacity battery inside, but we cannot be sure yet as the TENAA listing doesn’t reveal the exact battery capacity of the device. Connectivity wise, the smartphone offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS, and 4G LTE connectivity. On the software front, the handset runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, with the company’s ZenUI layer on top.
From the pictures published by TENAA on its website, it seems like the Pegasus X005 will come with a polycarbonate build. While that may be disappointing to some buyers, it should help Asus keep the price down.
Since the Pegasus X005 has received certification from TENAA, we think Asus may announce the smartphone in the coming weeks. When it goes on sale, the phablet will be offered in three color options – Blue, Gold, and White.
