Asus showcased its newest mobile device, the ZenFone 3. The technical specs are absolutely glorious. The price tag is not for the weak of heart. The phone will be available for purchase in Taiwan initially, and will hit the US markets later in 2016.
The ZenFone 3 Deluxe is Asus’ new pride and joy, as it should be.
What Makes A ZenFone?
The phone will be the first model ever to have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 SoC. The chip has an amazing 2.4 GHz Kyro quad-core CPU, an enhanced graphics engine allowing for 4K video processing on proxy displays, and a modem that supports up to 600 Mbps download speed.
Accompanying the Snapdragon 821, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe boasts 6GB of DDR4 RAM.
Concerning storage capacity, Asus set up a comfortable 256 GB of UFS 2.0, but it also has an additional SIM slot which can host a microSD card with up to 128 GB of storage.
The additional SIM slot and the epic modem do also enable the ZenFone 3 to access privately managed cloud in ways smart device owners could only dream.
The display is a 5.7-inch screen. The Deluxe model comes with the Full-HD AMOLED display.
The front camera has an 8-megapixel range, while the back sensor is a 23-megapixel Sony model. Asus demonstrated the 4K video capture of the camera along with the flawless Snapdragon video processing on an external display.
The 3,000 mAh power source is medium-sized, and Asus stated heating should not be an issue.
Asus is running Zen UI on the ZenFone 3 Deluxe. The OS was built using the architecture of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Price Of Luxury
As previously stated, the price tag is not for the weak. In the United States, the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe is going to be ranging close to $780. In August in Taiwan, the price range will be the regional equivalent. Pre-ordering in Taiwan will be available until the end of July.
In regards to the price tag, an initial overview may look it appear quite steep but the tech is brand new and cannot really be easily outmatched. This is one of the most outstanding Android phones to be available this year in terms of looks, design, and performance.
During the same presentation, Asus did mention upcoming development of the ZF3 Ultra, The ZenPad 3S 10 was also presented to the public, but the tablet did not sport tech anyway near as impressive as the ZenFone 3 Deluxe.
