Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe now up for pre-order in the U.S.; prices start at $399


Last month Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe and Laser briefly went on pre-order at Amazon, but the retailer removed the smartphones after a short while without providing customers with details on why it took that decision.

Fast forward less than three weeks and it looks like both smartphones are now available for pre-order. Customers in the United States can now pre-order the ZenFone 3 Deluxe and ZenFone 3 Laser, but the phones aren't listed on Amazon anymore.

If you want to get either of the two phones, then you will have to pre-order them from Asus's online store. There are three ZenFone 3 Deluxe models available for pre-order at Asus, and just one ZenFone 3 Laser, but the good news is all variants will ship this month.

The cheapest is the Asus ZenFone 3 Laser, which costs just $199. This one is already available for purchase, so you can order it and it will be shipped right away. It comes with 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory and a 5.5-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution.

Next on the list, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe that costs $399 comes with a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It also features a 16-megapixel rear-camera, 8-megapixel selfie camera and Quick Charge 3.0 technology.

For those who want a beefed up version, Asus offers the ZenFone 3 Deluxe with 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution. This one sells for $499 and packs a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU, 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage inside.

Last but not least, customers who can afford it can pre-order the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe Special Edition for no less than $799. It sports a similar 5.7-inch Super AMOLED full HD (1080p) display, a Snapdragon 821 chipset, 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory. There's also a 23-megapixel camera on the back, and an 8-megapixel photo snapper in the front.

Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe Special Edition will ship on October 19, while the other two models are expected to arrive on October 12.
