Asus ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 3 Deluxe star in official promo videos

Asus ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 3 Deluxe star in official promo videos
Earlier today, Asus announced three smartphones, all part of the brand new ZenFone 3 family: the 5.5-inch ZenFone 3, the 5.7-inch ZenFone 3 Deluxe, and the giant, 6.8-inch ZenFone 3 Ultra. No release dates were given, but it looks like the ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 3 Deluxe will be the first to reach consumers, as both already star in official promo videos (while the ZenFone 3 Ultra has yet to appear in one).

The ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 3 Deluxe promo videos, which you can watch below, provide an overview of their highlight features, while allowing interested customers to better examine the design differences between the two devices - for example, the ZenFone 3 has a metal frame, and a flat rear that's covered in Gorilla Glass, while the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is an all-metal device with a slightly arched back.

As its name suggests, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is the superior handset among the two, thanks to high-end features like a Snapdragon 820 processor, and up to 6 GB of RAM. This means that the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is more expensive, prices for it starting at $499, while the regular ZenFone 3 will cost as low as $249.

Until these new Asus smartphones hit the market, you can find out more about them if you check out our ZenFone 3 series features review, and our ZenFone 3 vs ZenFone 3 Deluxe vs ZenFone 3 Ultra specs comparison.

Not great pricing like previous year!!! From 300$ to 500$. no go for me !! And even batteries are very low for 2016 !! Hopefully op3 delievers otherwise have to settle for a perfct mid-range like le 2 pro or RN3

because ZF2 is midranger and ZF3 deluxe is highend.. just like last year ZTE's axon vs the new ZTE's axon... and this ZF3 deluxe is cheaper that most of smartphone with SD820.. (and regular ZF3 is good and cheap enough to replace ZF2)

How was the Axon Pro midrange? It had the 810 v2.1, 4 gigs of RAM, and one of the better audio experiences you can get in a smartphone.
