4GB of RAM is enough these days, while 6GB is considered as flagship specs and can be seen in few of the handpicked devices only. However, Asus has upped their game and has officially launched the Zenfone AR with a humongous 8GB of RAM — the first of its kind in this world. Targeted to a niche market, the Zenfone AR resembles Lenovo Phab2 Pro, the first phone to come with Google’s very own Project Tango support. Surprisingly, the handset also supports Google’s Daydream VR.
As far as other specs are concerned, the Zenfone AR sports a 5.7-inch QHD(2560×1440) Super AMOLED display and shines on Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset. The phone is paired up with a whopping 8GB of RAM(or 6GB) as oppose to the Phab2 Pro’s 4GB. The Zenfone AR will be available in four different variants including 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB of UFS 2.0 storage; all four with microSD card support.
Talking about the camera, the phone boasts 23MP Sony IMX318 sensor with OIS & EIS and a motion tracking plus fisheye depth-sensing camera(for AR), placed on the same rectangle strip, unlike the Phab2 Pro’s messy camera placement. Up front, there’s an 8MP camera for selfies and video chats.
The whole phone boots on Android 7.0 Nougat on top of ZenUI 3.0 and packs a decent 3300mAh battery with Quick Charge support. Connectivity option of the phone includes 4G LTE support, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, dual-band WiFi, and A-GPS.
