Display and design

Super sharp display

The Zenfone AR’s screen measures 5.7-inches from corner to corner, with Quad HD resolution - four times sharper than standard 720p HD. And, the display is protected with Gorilla Glass 4, giving you 85% less chance of damage. 

Premium build

This smartphone may have impressive specs throughout, but that doesn’t mean ASUS has overlooked aesthetics. The curved shape of the phone means it fits comfortably in the palm, and the mixture of metal and leather provides a luxurious appearance all-round. 


TriCam™ system

The ASUS Zenfone features a Sony 23MP lens on the back with electronic image stabilisation (EIS), alongside a depth-sensing camera and motion-tracker. Together they create a system called TriCam, which is able to map its surroundings - like walls and furniture - and detect how far away from the phone they are.


Once the phone understands the 3D space you’re in, you’ll be able start enjoying the world of augmented reality, powered by Tango. 

Tango from Google

Tango is a technology created by Google, helping to make mobile augmented reality (AR) possible. The difference between AR and VR is that you’re able to see and interact with objects layered on top of your real surroundings, instead of being in the virtual world while wearing a headset or mask. 

Picture-perfect selfies

There’s an additional lens on the front of the smartphone for all your selfie and video calling needs. At 8MP you can expect bright and colourful photos, as well as high definition face-to-face conversations with friends and family the world over. 

Under the hood

Unlimited power

ASUS’ Zenfone boasts a massive 6GB RAM, accompanied by the latest Qualcomm 821 Snapdragon processor. All this power supports the amazing AR technology, but also means that when you’re using the phone for other stuff, you’ll never be slowed down when hopping between different apps.


There’s also a 3,300mAh battery on board. AR can also be quite demanding of power, but with the large cell, and quick-charging technology courtesy of the USB Type-C technology, you’ll get 60% charge in just 39 minutes.  


As well as AR, you’re totally set up for virtual reality with Daydream View. The phone comes bundled with Google’s VR headset, so all you need to do is download the app, slot the phone into the headset, and enjoy immersive experiences in full 360.
