Asus ZenFone AR with Tango and Daydream support is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. this July1
The ZenFone AR also supports Google's Daydream making it the first handset to support both Google's AR and VR platforms at the same time. Additionally, the device won't resemble last year's clunky Lenovo Phab Pro 2, which was the first commercial phone to support Tango.
The ZenFone AR will be powered by an optimized Snapdragon 821 chipset, and will have 8GB of RAM inside. A variant with 6GB will also be available. The 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display carries a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution and features 64GB/128GB of native storage. Three cameras on back will take care of depth and motion tracking, and room mapping.
While pricing and a precise launch date are still unknown, Asus CEO Shen did say that the company wouldn't dare charge more than the price of the Samsung Galaxy S8+. Which means that we could see the Asus ZenFone AR tip the scales at a price under $800.
