Asus ZenFone AR unboxing

So, we've finally got our grubby mitts on the augmented reality phone by Asus — the ZenFone AR. What is it about? Well, it features a tri-camera module on its back, which allows augmented reality apps to better place virtual objects in our real world. Built for Google's Tango AR platform and being Daydream-ready, it's a sophisticated and exciting peek into one possible future for smartphones.

We've also got some serious hardware on board to drive all of this innovative software — a Snapdragon 821, 6 GB / 8 GB of RAM, 64 GB / 128 GB of storage, and a 3,300 mAh battery. We are about to unbox the ZenFone AR and play with it for the first time — you can enjoy the experience with us by watching the video below!

Interesting that its got Snapdragon inside, considering Asus have heavily used Intel chipsets in the past...

This is an exciting phone with a great price, almost half of the incoming Note 8. Everything Asus makes is top notch.

Also it is a dual SIM dual standby, not dual active with 2 radios unfortunately but no body does right now.
