Both the models come packed with 2 GB of RAM. There’s also a dedicated microSD card slot that allows users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity. On the front side, there’s a 5 MP selfie camera and an LED flash, which supports facial recognition.

On the back side, the Zenfone Live (L2) features a 13 MP f/2.0 PDAF main camera and a secondary 8 MP sensor along with an LED flash. Connectivity options on the device include 4G, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, FM radio, and 3.5mm headphone jack.
