Asus is adding a new model to its Zenfone 3 line of smartphones. Jut a few weeks after introducing the Zenfone 3, Zenfone 3 Deluxe, and Zenfone 3 Ultra, the company has unveiled a smaller model with a 5.2 inch display, an octa-core processor, and a 4,100 mAh battery.

The Asus Zenfone Pegasus 3 is coming to China soon for 1299 Yuan ($197) and up.

The entry-level model feature 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, but Asus will also offer a 1499 Yuan ($228) model with 3GB of RAm and 32GB of storage.

Both versions feature 1280 x 720 pixel displays, 13MP rear and 5MP front cameras, a fingerprint sensor, dual SIM support, and a 1.3 GHz, 64-bit octa-core processor.

Asus will offer the phone in gold, rose gold (pink), silver, and grey color options.

There’s no word on if or when we’ll see this model outside of China, but if you happen to be in that country, it looks like the Zenfone Pegasus 3 will be both the smallest and the cheapest member of the Zenfone 3 family (so far).
