One of the reasons why the CES 2017 was tagged an unforgettable event was because of the introduction of ASUS’s beast of a device, the Asus Zenfone AR. This handset was launched on that global platform early this year but up till now, there has been no word on its availability.
Now, the Search Engine giants, Google, have just dished out information confirming that this device will be out on the sales shelves this summer. One of the nifty additions of this handset is the Google Tango, making it the second device ever made to feature this technology.
However, although it is the second handset to come in with this addition, it happens to be the first to have both Google Tango and Daydream VR support and also the first smartphone to go live with a monstrous 8GB of RAM.
On the back panel, there are three camera sensors available tasked with measuring depth, motion tracking, and room mapping. These sensors will allow the Asus Zenfone AR to measure motion and space as well.
This beast is propelled by a Snapdragon 821 processor and also has a lesser 6GB RAM variant. Both the 8GB and 6GB will have ROM versions of 64GB and 128GB as well. It is graced with a 5.7 inch AMOLED 2K display.
Above this screen is an 8MP snapper for all your selfie and video calling app needs. This sensor accompanies an even better imaging unit on the back panel with a 23MP main camera that has OIS capabilities. The Asus Zenfone AR runs the sweetness of the Android Nougat OS from the box and has the Zen UI 3.0 backing it up.
We are still in the dark as to how much this handset will ask for when it goes official in the few coming weeks. However, we are sure to keep you update as summer is fast approaching.
