The smartphone manufacturer is once pushing the boundaries with the newly announced Asus Zenfone AR.
The phone is celebrated as the thinnest and the lightest smartphone ever constructed by the team which also has the latest specifications that buyers would ask for.
Apart from all these features, the camera integrated in the rear end of the Asus Zenfone AR was talked in length during the conference that just ended today. The Computex 2017 is the most beloved event for techology enthusiasts and this year was no different. Asus took stage much earlier than their competitors as they had a lot of interesting announcements to make including a wifi router with a hole, the thinnest convertible laptop, computer monitors and much more.
For smartphone lovers, the upcoming AR phone is definitely a treat as it promises the best performance combined with out of the world photography on par with DSLR cameras. The device is equipped with Asus Tricam technology which combines three different cameras in one area. While companies like Huawei, Samsung and Xiaomi are working hard on a dual camera setup, this company has already pushed the boundary to three cameras.
The setup includes a primary 23 megapixel camera along with a motion tracking camera to detect the position of people and a depth sensing camera. Allowing smartphones to take DSLR quality pictures with a strong emphasis on the background is what manufacturers are aiming to achieve. Even though what Asus is doing is highly experimental it could soon become the norm because cameras are becoming thinner and lighter, making it easy to implement them into these phones.
The ASUS Zenfone AR is powered by a older Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. It has 8 GB of RAM, a huge improvement and should be a multi-tasker’s dream come true. The phone also sports a beautiful and spacious 5.7-inch AMOLED display. Equipped with a five magnet speaker setup, it has Daydream VR support and has a whole lot of apps to offer an immersive experience. The phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system out of the box.
Asus didn’t confirm when and how soon it will be made available at the stores but considering their usual schedule, you should be able to buy the Zenfone AR possibly in the next one or two months. The pricing is anticipated to be around $600 or more, which is not too expensive for the average buyer.
