ASUS ZenFone AR smartphone leaks online

ASUS ZenFone AR Android smartphone with Tango camera
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.
