At this year’s Computex expo held in Taipei, ASUS took the opportunity to officially introduce not one but a trio of new smartphone devices (as part of its promise) -- namely the ZenFone 3, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe, and the ZenFone 3 Ultra. All three phablets come with color options of Shimmer Gold, Sapphire Black, Moonlight White, and Aqua Blue.
The ZenFone 3 features a 5.5 inch FHD display screen with a resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 pixels. This is flanked with a 16 megapixel camera on the rear side (with f/2.0 aperture, 6 P Largan lens), as well as an 8 megapixel camera on the front side (with f/2.0 aperture, Fix Focus). Inside the device’s sleek metallic frame, there exists a 2.0 GigaHertz Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 eight core 64 bit chip set, with an Adreno 506 graphics processing unit (GPU), supported with 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and onboard memory of 64 gigabytes, with micro SD card support for expanding up to 128 gigabytes. The device comes with a 3,000 mAh battery and is powered by Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
As its name suggests, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is bigger than the ZenFone 3, with a display screen coming in at 5.7 inches (FHD, plus 1,920 by 1,080 resolution). The camera specs are also improved -- on the rear side is a 23 megapixel camera (with f/2.0 aperture, 6 P Largan lens), while on the front side is an 8 megapixel camera (f/2.0 aperture 85 degrees wide viewing angle). The ZenFone 3 Deluxe smartphone’s 2.15 GigaHertz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad core 64 bit processor is also a big improvement, coupled with an Adreno 530 624 Megahertz GPU with OpenGL 3.0 support, plus 6 gigabytes of RAM and internal storage options that include 64 gigabytes, 128 gigabytes, and even 256 gigabytes. Software wise, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is armed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow (but with ASUS’ brand new ZenUI).
As for the ZenFone 3 Ultra, this device is really big. It possesses a 6.8 inch FHD display screen, paired with a 23 megapixel camera and a 8 megapixel camera on both sides (same as the ZenFone 3 Deluxe). Inside, it features a 1.8 GigaHertz Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 quad core 64 bit chip set, with an Adreno 510 GPU. This is supported with 3 gigabytes of RAM, as well as 64 gigabytes or 128 gigabytes of built in storage, (expandable up to 200 gigabytes by way of micro SD).
The ZenFone 3’s pricing starts at $249, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe at $499, while the ZenFone 3 Ultra starts at $479.
