Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe and ZenFone 3 Laser now available to order from Amazon

Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe and ZenFone 3 Laser now available to order from Amazon
Officially unveiled back in May, Asus' ZenFone 3 family currently includes five smartphones: the regular ZenFone 3, the ZenFone 3 Ultra, ZenFone 3 Deluxe, ZenFone 3 Laser, and ZenFone 3 Max.

While Asus hasn't properly announced this, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe and ZenFone 3 Laser are now available to order from Amazon in the US. Both handsets come with 1-year US warranty, are unlocked, and should ship "within 2 to 5 weeks."

Costing $530.48, the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe is a pretty large metal-made handset that sports a 5.7-inch 1080p display and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It looks like this is not the version with a Snapdragon 821 CPU and 256 GB of storage space, instead featuring a Snapdragon 820 processor and 64 GB of internal memory. The smartphone further offers 6 GB of RAM, fingerprint scanner, a 23 MP rear camera with 4K video recording, 8 MP front-facing camera, dual SIM support, and a 3000 mAh battery.

The ZenFone 3 Laser is considerably cheaper than the Deluxe, costing $206.95. Obviously, this phone offers less impressive features, including a Snapdragon 430 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and a 5.5-inch 1080p display. Android Marshmallow and dual SIM support are on board, too.

Being unlocked smartphones, both the ZenFone 3 Deluxe and ZenFone 3 Laser should work on GSM/LTE carriers (including AT&T and T-Mobile), but not on CDMA/LTE carriers like Verizon and Sprint.

At the moment, we don't know when Asus' other ZenFone 3 handsets are going to be released in the US, but it will probably happen in the near future. Let us know if you're planning to buy any of these phones, will you?

Update: Amazon removed the ZenFone 3 Laser and ZenFone 3 Deluxe from its website, but we're pretty sure that both phones should be released in the US in the near future anyway.

Really dont understand the logic.. Announce the phone in a hurry and release them after 5 months?!. If they want more sales, they need to announce and start shipping on the same day or make available withing 2-3 days not months.

probably they wait for SD821 and then giveup because the queue is to long... but its still better than zenfone zoom... it released almost 1 year after announced.. and the hype already dead

I believe there might be a typo on the Amazon description. The model number listed is ZS570KL and per Asus that does have a SD821. Also, further down on the Amazon page the description says 821.
