Asus unveils ZenFone 3 Deluxe phablet
Although Asus unveiled the ZenFone 3 lineup back at Computex, the Deluxe flagship has just been uncovered yesterday packing a processor upgrade. Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe has just become the world's first device that uses the 2.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset.
As it usually happens with Asus ZenFone devices, the Deluxe comes in more variants. The top-of-the-line ZenFone 3 Deluxe has a price of around $780 USD, using the Snapdragon 821 processor and featuring 6 GB DDR4 memory, as well as 256 GB of UFS 2.0 internal storage, with microSD support via the second SIM slot. The other two variants use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage ($500 USD) or 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage ($560 USD).
All the variants mentioned above have a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1,920X1,080 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, 4G LTE and NFC connectivity, 23 MP f/2.0 main camera with OIS and dual flash, and a fingerprint reader. Taiwan and Hong Kong will get them starting in August, but the most expensive of the lot will arrive after the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820-powered variants. We will get back to them as they hit the market, so stay tuned.
