Remember the Asus Zenfone 5 with 2GB RAM and 8GB ROM that was available for Rs. 9,999 then at 8,999. Well this is the same model name, but with different model number (1.2GHz) available for Rs. 7,999. If you have a HDFC bank card you get another 10% off.

On Flipkart you will get 10% off (minimum transaction amount is 7,500) when using HDFC cards for payments. The Zenfone 5 for Rs. 7,999 along with a 10% off is really cool. Though this handset price has been reduced from Rs. 8,999 (for limited period only), there are only two colour options available.
