Asus unveiled the AR/VR phablet simply known as ZenFone AR back at CES 2017, but it took a while for this handset to be finally ready for launch. Now, we find out that Verizon Wireless and Asus inked a deal to bring this innovative Android device to the US and sales are scheduled to begin next month.

Asus ZenFone AR comes with a WQHD 5.7-inch Super AMOLED and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, next to 6 GB RAM, 128 GB internal storage. Its audio and visual features include DTS Virtual Surround Sound, a PixelMaster 3.0 camera system with TriTech Autofocus and a Sony IMX318 sensor. This handset can track motion, also being able to perceive depth and "learn" the environment.

The ZenFone AR will hit the market loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat and, for now, the price is unknown. However, it will not be cheap, most likely around $600 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
