Asus ZenFone AR India launch set for July 13

Asus slashes smartphone prices by up to Rs 3,000

We have been hearing about the Asus Zenfone AR from quite a time now, and Asus has made a decision to launch the device in India on 13th of July which is compatible with Tango AR as well as Google's Daydream VR platform. Thanks to these, the Asus Zenfone 4 Max will probably outlast the majority of other smartphones available right now.

As for the operating system, the device will run Android 7.0 Nougat with ZenUI on top. That is, the phone comes either with the Snapdragon 425 or with the Snapdragon 430 SoC on board. The device is also the first to sport a whopping 8GB of RAM and the company has also promised that the device will come in different variants including a 6GB of RAM and storage option ranging from 32GB to up to 256GB.

Also, the cool thing about the device is there will be three separate slots - two for SIM cards and one for the memory card.




Asus Zenfone AR is the second smartphone, after Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, which comes equipped with Google aspirational project, Tango.

Asus Zenfone 4 Max comes with dual camera setup. This is definitely one of the best features of the smartphone, apart from the huge battery. Up front, the phone sports an 8-megapixel selfie camera which is also accompanied by a LED flash. It also claims that 15 minutes of charging is enough to get 3 hours of talk time. In order to fully charge the 5,000mAh mammoth, users will need to let it plugged in for around four hours. The latest model, the ZenFone 4 Max, is no different, packing a 5,000mAh battery. We're still waiting for Asus to announce exactly when the ZenFone 4 Max will hit the Indian market.

Asus unveiled the first few ZenFone 3 models over a year ago, and although we understand the uniquely immersive ZenFone AR probably took a little more R&D effort than the usual Android flagship, waiting until September for the ZenFone 4 family still felt irritatingly excessive. The pricing starts at 13900 Ruble (Rs 15,170) for the base variant and is likely to go on sale in Russian Federation soon.
