ASUS ZenFone AR Coming to the Philippines This June


First announced during Consumer Electronics Show this year in the US, the second Project Tango-enabled smartphone called ASUS ZenFone AR has a new update for us especially for those who have been waiting for it. ASUS just announced that this smartphone will arrive in the country beginning in June 2017.

The ASUS ZenFone AR is the second device to support Augmented Reality technology from Google called Project Tango, first being the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro smartphone, and this is the first handset ready to support Google Daydream platform.
According to the recent interview with ASUS CEO Jerry Shen by Engadget, there are now over 100 Tango AR apps available for the device and about 50 of them now run smoothly with ZenFone AR. The number maybe too small for now, but Mr. Jerry Shen said that it is expected to go more than 1,000 AR apps by next year.

So what is AR or Augmented reality? To give you better explanation on this new tech, watch the demo video below from Android Authority.

ASUS ZenFone AR specs:
  • 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED Display
  • 2560 x 1440 resolution
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 4
  • 2.35GHz 64-bit Quad-core Snapdragon 821 processor
  • Adreno 530 GPU
  • 8GB RAM
  • 256GB Insternal storage
  • Supports microSD card
  • 23MP PixelMaster 3.0 rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, Sony IMX 318 sensor, OIS, PDAF, Dual LED Real Tone flash
  • 8MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture and screen flash
  • Android 7.0 Nougat with ZenUI 3.0
  • WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS
  • 4G  LTE
  • Dual-SIM (hybrid)
  • Fingerprint Scanner
  • USB Type-C
  • Quick Charge 3.0
  • 3300mAh battery

What we don't know yet is the exact date of availability in June and of course the official Philippine pricing for the unit. Based on the specs and technologies it carries, I am guessing it's going to be around Php40,000 mark.
