ASUS Zenfone AR is now available on the international channel after its launch in Taiwan. A smart mobile that can boast of being the first to add support for the Tango and DayDream platforms.
A large, high resolution, premium chassis and high performance terminal that features the latest in virtual and augmented reality technologies from Google. Following are the five reasons why you should consider a different smartphone – ASUS Zenfone AR:
- An Augmented Reality project developed by Google’s Advanced Projects and Technologies Group (ATAP). Equipped with 3D sensors allow to create in real time three-dimensional models of the space that surround it. The hardware is supported by software designed to track the full 3D movement of the device, while creating a map of the environment.
- In a unique mix with Tango, Zenfone AR also has native support for Google’s new Virtual Reality platform. The Internet giant says that we forget high-power PCs to move VR developments because in its view, the smartphone is the future of the sector. Google has developed a Daydream VR helmet, a proprietary driver and a separate section on Google Play. It promises latency reduction up to 20 ms, graphics at 60 fps without ghosting, compatibility with engines like Unreal Engine 4 and support for the Vulkan API.
- TriCam system. The use of the double lens in the main camera is next to the screen without beveling one of the trends in smartphones. ASUS Zenfone AR does not conform to two but incorporates three cameras (in addition to a front) to support Tango. And they are also good because one of them is a Sony IMX318 with sensor of 23 megapixels, in addition to those intended for motion tracking and depth detection.
- Notable hardware level. ASUS ZenFone AR has a 5.7-inch diagonal multi-touch screen with Tru2life technology, Gorilla Glass 4 protection and native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Its SoC engine is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 with Adreno 530 GPU, accompanied by variants with 6 and 8 Gbytes of RAM and up to 128 Gbytes of internal storage capacity UFS 2.0, expandable with microSD cards.
- SonicMaster 3.0 and DTS Headphone: X. Virtual reality is not just a visual experience and audio is a part of immersion. Particularly careful is the sound section of this terminal with the 7.1 surround sound simulation provided by the DTS Headphone: X standard and which we will use with headphones or a virtual reality helmet under Daydream.
