Asus to launch ZenFone AR in the UK on July 21, but its price will break the bank


Asus hadn't been selling smartphones directly in the UK for quite some time, but the Taiwanese company had a change of heart recently. The mighty Tango-enabled Asus ZenFone AR will be officially launched in the UK and pre-orders will go live on July 21.

The ZenFone AR will be a costly device to purchase for those who want a taste of Google's Tango project. Customers in the UK will have to come up with £799 to buy the high-end smartphone. The good news is Asus will offer some incentives to those who purchase the ZenFone AR.

Assuming you have that much money to spend on a smartphone, Asus will give you a Google Daydream View VR headset for free. Moreover, the first 30 customers who pre-order the ZenFone AR will receive the smartphone in a wooden chest, along with some premium headphones, a case, and a screen protector.

Although customers will have to pay a hefty price for the Asus ZenFone AR, let's not forget that it's one of the few smartphones on the market with 8GB RAM inside. Other highlights of the phone include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 CPU, a vibrant 5.7-inch Quad HD display, and 128GB internal.

The Phone, apparently, has some excellent hardware. But the design, steep price, and the processor could be off putting for many people. And let's not forget the thickness together with the leather back. Especially in an era of metal and all-glass phones.
