The one Zenfone that we get asked about the most? The Zenfone 3 Deluxe is by far the most inquired about. We have great news for those of you in the US market. It’s now available to buy, right now! If you want to buy one, here is your first chance. This is “Shipped from and sold by Amazon.com” so it’s not a third party seller with an inflated price. This model has a US warranty so it’s a North American release model and not an international version. This is breaking news, so if you want to be first, here is your chance!
This particular version of the Zenfone 3 Deluxe comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. It has the Qualcomm Snapdragon S820. If you are wondering about the model which comes with a Snapdragon S821, that is not available to buy at this time and it’s unclear what the release date will be in the US for the Zenfone 3 Deluxe Special Edition with the 256GB storage, 6GB of RAM and the Snapdragon S821 processor.
Although this Zenfone 3 Deluxe listing on Amazon says ships in 2-5 weeks, be assured that it’s coming earlier than that. It’s typical for Amazon to list a “best guess” shipping date when products are first listed on the site. We’ve seen this before with new Asus product listings. Amazon does this so they don’t have people expecting it in a day or two, when it might take a few days longer. Keep expectations low, and make people happy by delivering sooner than expected is what happens most times like this.
Update: We believe now is the time to start shopping for a Zenfone 3 if you live in Canada or the US. We’ve spotted the Zenfone 3 Laser (ZC551KL) on Amazon.com for just $206 here.
