Earlier this year, ASUS took the wraps off its Tango-enabled, Android-powered super-fast smartphone ZenFone AR. However, the device wasn’t available for purchase almost immediately. After months passed by, the company finally decided to put its #Smartphone on sale. Starting today, the #Asus Zenfone AR is available for purchase on websites like #Verizon Wireless. While the base price of the device is $648, interested buyers can also pay $27 a month, if they wish to break up the payments. The Chinese technology giant had already announced a couple of weeks back that the smartphone will be available for sale exclusively through Verizon, however; at that time, the firm did not make any mention of the pricing bit.

Specs and features

Interested buyers are advised to note that the ASUS ZenFone AR is not immediately available for purchase, for Verizon Wireless is only taking pre-orders as of now. However, the consumers can always make the claim for the smartphone, as firstly – they come in limited stocks and secondly, the devices are expected to be delivered in no time. Although, the US carrier hasn’t announced exactly when they plan on making the deliveries; the smartphone is only available in one storage variant i.e. 128GB. ASUS had also announced a 64GB storage variant towards the beginning of this year, however; it appears like the consumers might have to wait for a bit longer before they can get their hands on it.

What makes ASUS ZenFone AR so special?

The ASUS ZenFone AR is the first smartphone that comes equipped with support for both, Google’s Tango and DayDream platforms – thereby allowing users to experience an enhanced AR and VR narration.
