Unveiled back in May, ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe and ZenFone 3 Laser have now made their way to the official retailer channels, primarily Amazon.
The two phones are part of a larger family that consists of the likes of ASUS ZenFone 3, ZenFone 3 Ultra as well as ZenFone 3 Max. The Taiwanese company has not made this news official yet, but the two phones are already up for sale on the largest online retailer in the world – Amazon. This goes for U.S. dwellers and the handsets come with a one-year warranty. It is unlocked and takes between 2-5 weeks to ship, so be aware.
Valued at $530.48, the high-end ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe is a great phone to have. It has an impressive 5.7-inch 1080p display screen that is roomy enough, a premium metallic build and comes with an amazing list of hardware specs under the hood, including running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Many will be eager to come across an ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe that is powered by the newest Snapdragon 821 SoC, 6GB RAM, and 256GB storage, but the one available on Amazon is the lower end variant.
Being a lower end model, it packs the slightly slower Snapdragon 820 SoC and is paired with a RAM of 6GB alongside 64GB of onboard storage. You get a massive 21MP snapper on the back with support for 4K video recording while the front has an 8MP snapper. Other goodies include dual-SIM support, a fingerprint scanner, and a 3000mAh battery unit.
On the other hand, the ZenFone 3 Laser, which comes in as a midranger, packs quite an impressive list of specs. These include a Snapdragon 430 SoC, 2GB RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. The phone offers 5.5 inches of Full HD display and there is dual-SIM support alongside Android Marshmallow. For this, you only have to part with $206.95.
Be warned that the two ZenFone 3 handsets will only work with the likes of AT&T and T-Mobile, among other GSM carriers. However, those using CDMA carriers like Sprint and Verizon are not lucky.
