Asus ZenFone AR Hong Kong - When reality’s not enough, go beyond

As a brand, Asus Hong Kong has proved themselves to be a force to be reckoned with in the electronics industry. Not only do they offer high-performing laptops and desktop PCs, Asus smartphones are also up to par with Asus’ bigger products. The brand’s smartphone line, Asus ZenFone, has released many top smartphones that are worth your consideration. One of the phones from the Asus Zenfone product line is the Asus ZenFone AR, one of the first augmented reality smartphone in the market.

Get Ready to Tango

The Asus ZenFone AR is the world’s first Tango enabled and Daydream-ready smartphone. The Asus smartphone is equipped with the new augmented reality technology (the Tango) and immersive virtual reality experience (the Daydream) right from your phone. The Tango uses sensors and computer vision software to detect and analyze the space and motion around you. The sensors then help in adding depth perception, motion tracking, and area learning capabilities to understand the physical space and incorporate it all into your Asus ZenFone AR.

Not Just a Simple Daydream

Aside from the Tango to fuel the AR feature on the Asus ZenFone AR, the Daydream technology by Google focuses more on virtual reality and making sure that you experience the highest quality of VR content. The technology uses WQHD Super AMOLED display, high-fidelity sensors to track head movement, and ultra-smooth graphics installed in the 5.7-inch display, which is then protected by Gorilla Glass 4. With the Daydream technology, you can easily pair your Asus mobile phone with any VR headset along with controllers released by Google.

Powering Your New Reality

To be able to provide you with the most immersive and high-quality AR and VR, the Asus ZenFone AR comes with a 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor that was optimized for the Tango AR technology. In order to give you the best experience when using the ZenFone AR, Asus worked with Qualcomm and Google to increase the workload efficiency as well as implementing the six degrees of freedom (6DoF), the multi-directional positioning needed by the Tango. Along with that, the phone comes with the world’s first 8GM of RAM and Qualcomm Adreno 530 GPU.

Elevate Your Auditory and Visual Experience

The Asus ZenFone AR didn’t forget to elevate auditory and visual experience as well. This Asus smartphone comes with a SonicMaster 3.0 technology for an immersive audio experience which is then paired with the DTS Headphone:X and DTS-HD Premium Sound. For the visuals, the phone comes with the PixelMaster 3.0 that comes with the 23-megapixel camera to help you capture clearer pictures and beautiful 4K videos.

All of these features are fitted into a minimalist body made from stainless steel. The Asus ZenFone AR proves that you don’t need an Asus laptop to take your AR and VR experience to the next level.
