The first day of CES 2017 has been an explosion of information, and Asus announced the ZenFone AR at the ongoing trade show in Las Vegas.
The ZenFone AR is the world’s first smartphone to be both Tango and Daydream-ready. It packs in a Snapdragon 821 processor, 8GB of RAM, and features a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED QHD (2560×1440) display. Asus said it’s worked closely with Google to ensure the smartphone works perfectly with both Google Tango and Daydream platforms. As you may recall, the first smartphone to support Google Tango AR was Lenovo’s Phab 2 Pro.
We used to assume that Asus would integrate Qualcomm’s next flagship SoC Snapdragon 835, but the company claims the Snapdragon 821 is designed to deliver unmatched AR and VR experiences.
However, Asus hasn’t revealed the availability or pricing of ZenFone AR.
