US carrier Verizon only recently confirmed that they would be making the latest Asus Zenfone AR available for purchase on their official website, starting immediately. The Chinese technology giant has now revealed that they will also be introducing a special unlocked version of its flagship Tango-enabled smartphone exclusively to the U.S. markets.

According to the information made available on the website, it appears that users will be able to purchase the unlocked version in both the configurations made available by the company, at a slightly higher price i.e.

$599. At the time of the launch, the company introduced two new variants where one came equipped with 6GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage at a starting price of $599, with the other one having 8GB of RAM along with 128GB of internal storage, at a base price of $699. Users have the option of expanding the memory in both the smartphones, which is an added benefit.

Specs and features

The ASUS ZenFone AR smartphone pretty much has only one drawback and that is the fact that it comes equipped with last year’s flagship system-on-chip. Despite this, fans are eager to get their hands on this unique Android-powered smartphone for more than one reason.

One the main highlights of buying the ASUS ZenFone AR is the fact that it comes equipped with complete support for all the modern-day technologies including Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) as well.

In other words, the device is compatible with both Google’s Tango and Daydream projects.

This sure is good news especially for professionals who are always in an immediate need for such technologies in compact sizes. The smartphone packs a large-enough display i.e. 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display along with 1,440 x 2,560 pixels resolution that makes the video-viewing experience on the smartphone worth it.

In fact, video content in 4K is delivered qualitatively as well.

Other details

One of the other major highlights of the ASUS ZenFone AR smartphone is the sound quality that the device has the potential to deliver. The smartphone, according to the company, comes equipped with an ultra-loud 5-magnet speaker that goes on to support Hi-Res Audio, DTS virtual surround sound and many other factors that complete the smartphone experience to perfection. Interested buyers can immediately log onto the official website if they wish to purchase this state-of-the-art product.
