Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe coming to the US
Those looking for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821-driven handset seem to have quite a few options available these days, and more are coming soon. While the new Pixel handsets from Google are expected to hit the market next month, the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe is scheduled to reach the US later this month.
This 5.7-inch phablet has top-of-the-line specs overall, although its Super AMOLED display only provides 1,920X1,080 pixels. Under the hood, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC is accompanied by 6 GB RAM and 256 GB internal storage, but there is also a microSD slot. The main camera uses the high-end 23 MP Sony IMX318 RS sensor. The list of connectivity features includes 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, as well as USB Type-C. It is also worth mentioning that this phablet has a traditional 3.5 mm audio jack.
Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and has a price of $799 USD (the Special Edition with Snapdragon 820), but the same specs with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC come with a $499 USD price tag.
