Asus Zenfone AR and Zenfone 3 Zoom: all the official images

Asus brought two impressive new phones at CES 2017: the Asus Zenfone AR, a large, 5.7" phone that is all about augmented reality with support for Google Tango's 3D camera systems, and a huge battery, then also the Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom, a phone with a dual camera system similar to the one on the iPhone 7 Plus and one of the first after the Samsung Galaxy S7 to come with super fast Dual Pixel auto-focusing.

Knowledge is power, and when it comes to those two phones, they are not only functional, but fairly good-looking as well. That's why we've compiled a selection of all the official images that showcase the phones from every angle.

Asus Zenfone AR

First, the Asus Zenfone AR is a sleek and good-looking phone, and that is a welcome change from the tanky Tango phones of the past. The Zenfone AR features a tri-camera system on the back with an additional depth and motion tracking systems, as well as a traditional camera with a high-performance Sony IMX 318 sensor.

This camera area bulges out very slightly, but overall the phone is rather thin. Under the hood, it's powered by a specifically modified version of the Snapdragon 821 system chip, optimized for Tango. The Asus Zenfone AR is also fully Daydream-compatible, so that you can use it with virtual reality glasses as well. Helping for all that is a 5.7-inch, high resolution Quad HD display.

Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom

The Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom is a camera-centric phone. Its dual camera system brings a telephoto, optical close-up capability similar to the iPhone 7 Plus.

The main rear camera features a wide, 25mm lens, while the secondary, telephoto one has a length of 56mm, which works out to some 2.3 times of effective optical zoom. Asus also takes pride in its f/1.7 lens for the main camera that lets in 38% more light than an f/2.0 lens), and the super-fast Dual Pixel focusing tech. The main camera unit is a 12MP one with large, 1.4-micron pixels, a key improvement for brighter images in dim conditions.

I wish they also do something about software and I am glad OEM's taking camera-focused innovation direction. Now deal with software side of the smartphone and phones have all they need. Of course never forget aesthetics of design side which on this occasion device looks nice.

I just wished they'd get rid of those old styled capacitive buttons and used the lollipop ones, or go on-screen

Asus is cheap but powerful.
