The world’s first Tango enabled and Daydream-ready phone
ZenFone AR is the world’s first 5.7-inch smartphone with Tango and Daydream by Google. Tango is an exciting new augmented reality (AR) technology that changes the way you interact with the world and expands your vision. And with Daydream, you can experience high-quality, immersive virtual reality (VR) with your phone.
Built to see like your eyes do
ZenFone AR is equipped with the innovative TriCam system consisting of three rear cameras — a motion tracking, depth sensing, and high-resolution 23MP camera — that enable the phone to a create a three-dimensional model of its surroundings and track its motion, so it can see the world just like you do. The motion tracking camera lets ZenFone AR track its location as it moves through space. The depth sensing camera with an infrared (IR) projector lets ZenFone AR measure its distance from real-world objects. The high-resolution 23MP camera lets you view virtual objects in your actual environment in stunning detail. Together with Tango, ZenFone AR delivers engaging augmented reality experiences for you to explore and enjoy.
Take your VR experience to a whole new level with Daydream
ZenFone AR with Daydream brings you high-quality VR experiences. With its brilliant WQHD Super AMOLED display, ultra-smooth graphics, and high-fidelity sensors that precisely track head movement, ZenFone AR immerses you in incredible new worlds that are so realistic, you feel as if you are actually there. Together with Daydream View, a VR headset and controller by Google, ZenFone AR lets you travel anywhere you want to go, kick back in your personal VR cinema, and play games that put you in the center of action.
Extreme power engineered for AR & VR
The ZenFone AR features the powerful 14nm smartphone processor — the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, optimized for Tango. It’s built to deliver ultra-fast performance for today’s best Tango smartphone AR and Daydream VR experiences. To optimize Tango performance on the Snapdragon 821 processor, ASUS worked closely with Qualcomm Technologies engineers and Google to efficiently distribute computer vision workloads, as well as six degrees of freedom, commonly referred to as “6DoF”, which is essentially the multi-directional positioning used in Tango. With world’s first 8GB of RAM and the desktop-class Qualcomm Adreno 530 graphics processing unit (GPU) that delivers supercharged graphics performance, the ZenFone AR handles the demands of Tango and Daydream with ease.
Impress your ears, inside and out
ZenFone AR’s SonicMaster 3.0 technology combines more audio innovations for AR and VR to be truly immersive — more volume, more quality and more effects. The new five-magnet speaker is driven by a powerful NXP Smart AMP, for expansive, high-volume output. When it’s time for immersive listening, ZenFone AR is able to output certified high-resolution audio to compatible devices at 24-bit/192kHz, or 4x CD quality! Then, ramp up the audio effects with DTS Headphone:X to pump virtual 7.1-channel surround sound straight to your ears!
Explore, discover and photograph
ZenFone AR is designed to encourage exploration and discovery. Photography is a wonderful tool for capturing and communicating discoveries. To help you explore and capture your world, ZenFone AR features a high-resolution 23MP camera as part of its TriCam system. With a large f/2.0 aperture lens, lightning-fast 0.03 seconds TriTech autofocus with subject tracking, and 92MP Super Resolution technology, it delivers beautiful and stunningly detailed photos in any lighting condition. Optical and electronic image stabilization help ensure blur-free shots and 4K video recording lets you capture moments in the highest quality.…more
