Verizon adds Moto E4 Plus and Asus ZenPad Z8s tablet to its already announced Asus ZenFone AR launch

Late last evening, we told you that Verizon had started accepting pre-orders for the Asus ZenFone AR. This is the first handset that not only features Tango-styled augmented reality capabilities, but also carries the Project Daydream Virtual Reality platform. The handset is priced at $27 a month for 24 months, or it can be bought on retail for $648. In addition, Verizon is now offering the Asus ZenPad Z8s tablet. An exclusive to Verizon, the slate can be bought at a price of $10.41 over 24-months. With a signed two-year contract, the ZenPad Z8s is priced at $149.99. Or, you can pay $249.99 on retail.

The Slate Gray ZenPad Z8s features a 7.9-inch IPS display with a 1536 x 2048 QXGA resolution screen. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable native storage. A rear-facing 13MP camera is on-board along with a front-facing 5MP selfie snapper. A 4680mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android Nougat is pre-installed.

Big Red is also launching today the Moto E4 Plus for pre-paid subscribers. The handset is priced at $129.99, and features a 5.5-inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. With a massive 5000mAh battery, the handset keeps you all charged up for as long as two days. The unit is powered by the Snapdragon 427 SoC, which includes a quad-core 1.4GHz CPU and the Adreno 308 GPU. A 13MP rear-facing camera comes with the phone, while a 5MP front-facing selfie snapper is included. 16GB of native storage comes with the phone, which can be expanded with the use of a 128GB microSD slot. Android 7.1.1 is pre-installed. A front-facing fingerprint scanner is embedded in the home button, and thanks to nano-coating by P2i, the Moto E4 Plus can handle spills, light rain and splashes.
