Based on what has been revealed at Google’s I/O developer conference that happened just a few weeks ago, Asus’ upcoming phablet, the ZenFone AR, is nearing its official release date, and the device will be hitting the United States mobile market some time this summer as an exclusive offering from Verizon Wireless.
Qualcomm may have accidentally revealed the ZenFone AR device, Asus’ latest smartphone offering and the second handset to come with support for Tango, Google’s augmented reality technology. Through a blog post, the chip maker giant inadvertently spilled the beans on an upcoming press conference to be held by Asus on January 4th of this year during the annual Consumer Electronics Show happening in the city of Las Vegas in Nevada this week.
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.
ASUS’s ZenFone Zoom has the distinction of being the first modern smartphone in around the world to possess a camera with 3x optical zoom but without any protrusion. This handset was first introduced by ASUS almost exactly one year ago at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2015) held in the city of Las Vegas in Nevada to the delightful surprise of camera loving mobile users out there.
It is definitely full steam ahead for Asus, at least with regards to its ZenFone line of mobile devices. The Taiwan based tech company is planning to launch up to 7 new ZenFone models next year. As told by Jerry Shen, chief executive officer of Asus, to Taiwanese publication DigiTimes recently, the new releases in 2016 will include a premium ZenFone Deluxe device, two models of the mainstream ZenFone Laser handset, one ZenFone Selfie and ZenFone Max, and one or a couple of ZenFone Go devices.
