The most requested information from you our visitor? The price of the Zenfone 3 Deluxe Special Edition with Snapdragon 821 processor and 256GB storage. We have the answer!
There you go! So glad we could break this bit of news because we know it was a highly requested piece on information.
It’s actually available right now to pre order on Asus US online store here. No other retailer is showing this as a pre order. Based on our previous experience with Asus, we might be able to provide some insight. There may be a small number of units coming to the US market, or not enough to supply the main retailers. As a result, Asus becomes the exclusive retailer through their online store. We saw this last year with some of the limited quantity ZenPad tablet products. We tell this story because if you want the “Special Edition”, it’s better to pre order right away because that opportunity might disappear in a real hurry. We are monitoring in various places so if other retailers offer up pre order for the Special Edition, we will update this post. Good luck!
Also consider the fact that the very respectable Zenfone 3 Deluxe with 64GB storage and Snapdragon 820 is priced at just $499 USD. It just depends how badly you want that faster processor and larger onboard storage. Also keep in mind that you have expandable storage options via microSD card slot. We have details of the $499 USD Zenfone 3 Deluxe model here.
On the heels of the Google Pixel XL price unveiling, it’s good for Asus to get this out there. If you’re wondering about this price, check out our Zenfone 3 Deluxe vs. Pixel XL price comparison article. We go deep you could say.
When is the US release date? According to Asus, it’s going to start shipping on October 19th in the US which is not far off at all. We are looking for retailers so you can get your pre orders set.
What about Canada? Great question. We feel it’s going to be priced around $1,000 CAD, but that’s a guess at this point.
Stay tuned, updates coming!
