New Zenfone AR promo video – Release date nears

With a new promo video comes hope that the Zenfone AR (ZS571KL) is coming to a store near you soon. Things have been relatively quiet regarding the Zenfone AR so it’s about time we get something to get us all excited.

The Zenfone AR was first unveiled at CES 2017 in January to a lot of fanfare from the tech industry and news outlets. It’s a very unique offering and because of that, Asus did get some good coverage.

The big unknown right now is price. Based on the display resolution and features, I suspect we’re looking at something around the price of a Zenfone 3 Deluxe (ZS570).

The video below does delve into the features of the Zenfone AR. It almost gets bogged down in the details with how AR cameras work and what’s going on inside the phone to make the magic happen. It’s a bit confusing in all honesty. That said, brilliant high resolution display and a good overall spec sheet on this phone.

    Augmented Reality has to be a big plus for designers, artists and business types alike.
    Asus has certainly upped the ante’ over every other flagship device also in the camera department.
    Many reviewers tell us Samsung’s S8 provides us with best overall image quality… I disagree, my recently purchased LG G6 is superior,
    far sharper and more natural colours.
    Need a second device importantly though, that offers real alternatives…. meaning specs that facilitate superior creative content and a second to none virtual experience.
    Good things come to those that are patient.

    Japan pricing has been announced, and the 8GB model is approx. $1000 there…expecting a cheaper price in the USA ($750-800?)
