Asus ZenFone AR has been around for a while, but it is more of a niche high-end product than a flagship aiming to take on the big ones currently on the market. This handset is the second Tango phone, after the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, as well as the first phone to offer support for both Tango and Daydream VR.

The TriCam system that enables Tango augmented reality features consists of a motion tracking unit, a depth sensing one, as well as a high-resolution 23 MP sensor. Thanks to them, the ZenFone AR can create a 3D model of its surroundings, also tracking the position and motion of its user. The other specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, a 5.7-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, 8 GB DDR4 memory, no less than 128 GB internal storage, a front camera with 8 MP, f/2.0, and 85-degree wide-angle lens. All these are driven by a 3,300 mAh battery and Android 7.0 Nougat with Asus ZenUI 3.0 on top.

In India, the price tag reads ₹49,999 INR - roughly $775 USD. However, those who buy a Google Daydream View VR headset next to the ZenFone AR phablet can get a ₹2.500 INR discount (around $39 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.
