ASUS ZenFone AR smartphone leaks online

Apparently by mistake, Qualcomm has confirmed the rumors about a Snapdragon 821-driven Tango phone by Asus. Since the blog post has been removed already, it seems like the ZenFone AR is as real as it gets.

Asus ZenFone AR will launch at CES as the first Snapdragon 821-powered smartphone with a Tango camera and, although this is not official yet, it can be considered to have been confirmed already. Qualcomm has published a blog post about this and, since the article was dated "January 4" and has been removed already, this is most likely the real thing.

According to the blog post mentioned above, "With Zenfone AR and the Daydream View headset and controller, you’ll be able to explore new worlds with apps like Google Street View and Fantastic Beasts, dive into your personal VR cinema with YouTube, Netflix, Hulu and HBO, and get your game on with Gunjack 2, LEGO BrickHeadz, Need for Speed and dozens other titles."

For now, there is no information about pricing and detailed specs, but this year's CES kicks off tomorrow, so we will surely hear more about the ZenFone AR in a day or two. As the press images that leaked via Evan Blass show, this handset does not offer anything impressive in terms of design - after all, being the first Tango-based phone with Daydream View VR support should be enough of a selling point.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
