CES 2017 is in full swing, and a few of the coolest smartphone announcements on the show are coming from Asus. The Taiwanese producer revealed a ZenFone 3 variant equipped with dual cameras and optical zoom. However, it’s the ZenFone AR that piqued our interest, thanks to a combo of nice specs and superior features of Google.
This device supports Daydream VR and Tango, and the first smartphone with 8GB of RAM.
It comes with a 23MP rear camera, as well as the optical needed to run Tango applications – this contains sensors for motion tracking and depth sensing camera. The Tango module takes up space where the fingerprint sensor is found on Asus phones, so the sensor is presently placed on the front, set in the bodily home button, which is flanked by capacitive keys.
The phone has all the specs you’d need on a VR-focused device, together with a massive, bright, and a Snapdragon 821 processor and beautiful 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with Quad HD resolution (sadly, it won’t get the brand-new Snapdragon 835, as we were hoping). The ZenFone AR will include either 6GB of RAM or a whopping 8GB of RAM, a first for any smartphone. The ZenFone AR comes with an Android 7.0 Nougat.
You’ll be able to expect to see the ZenFone AR launched in the second quarter of this year (April-June), however, exact pricing and availability are still to be confirmed. The ZenFone AR is shaping as much as for being a very interesting device, in particular with both Daydream and Tango inside. The specifications – and mainly the 8GB of RAM – make us interested to see how the ZenFone AR performs in actual life. We’ll choose it up for further testing as soon as its launch date approaches.
