ZenFone AR is the first device to have up to 8GB of Random Access Memory. ZenFone AR is crafted in a beautiful minimalist design and at the back it uses a leather like back cover which should make it resistant to scratches. 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 one interacts with the world and expands your vision. And with Daydream, you can experience high-quality, immersive virtual reality (VR) with your phone.
ZenFone AR will be the first device to come with both AR and VR and with the help of Tango, motion tracking, depth perception, and area learning capabilities have been made easier on the ZenFone AR.
