Way back in January, Asus announced the Asus Zenfone AR, a device that was to be the first Android device with 8GB of RAM under the hood. It's June now, though, and we still haven't seen the Zenfone AR, but new information points, thankfully, towards a June 14 release. Of course, other Android devices have been released with 8GB of RAM since—the Nubia Z17 springs to mind.

Asus' new flagship disappoints in the power department, as it ships with the Snapdragon 821, Qualcomm's flagship SoC from last year, instead of a Snapdragon 835. The Taiwanese manufacturers dropped the ball with that one, as the choice means the Zenfone AR cannot really compete with the more recent flagships. In terms of raw performance, at least.

Processor aside, though, the Zenfone AR offers some pretty decent specifications, with a 5.7" QHD display, with support for Tango, Google's AR system, and Daydream. It also sports a whopping 256GB of internal storage, a 23MP Sony IMX318 sensor, 8MP selfie shooter, and a 3300mAh battery. 

Prices are unconfirmed at the moment.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
