Snapdragon 823 powered Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe on the way to certain markets?
The Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe was introduced by Asus near the end of last month. The original specs for the device included a Snapdragon 820 chipset. But a report published today reveals that the phone will be offered in the Philippines and possibly other markets like India, with the Snapdragon 823 chipset on board.

The Snapdragon 823 SoC is rumored to be the standard fare on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 (or 7). The chip features a faster CPU with the four Kryo cores running at a clock speed of 3GHz as opposed to the 2.2GHz top speed on the Snapdragon 820. Both chipsets support 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM.

The Snapdragon 823 SoC powered ZenFone 3 Deluxe will hit limited markets in August carrying a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. That works out to a 386ppi pixel density. 6GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of expandable native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available to those seeking additional storage.

A 23MP Pixelmaster camera is on back with both OIS and EIS (!), PDAF and HDR. The front-facing 8MP camera has a wide angle lens for shooting selfies. The device carries a fingerprint scanner, and a 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on. Quick Charge 3.0 allows for a rapid re-charge of the cell. Android 6.0 is pre-installed with the Zen 3.0 UI running on top.

Color options are Titanium Gray, Glacier Silver and Sand Gold. The ZenFone 3 Deluxe is priced at the equivalent of $499.

Thanks for the tip!
