The first phone with 8GB RAM confirmed: ASUS ZenFone AR

5 January, 2017 ASUS


The ASUS ZenFone AR has been confirmed at the CES 2017 in Las Vegas and it's a beast in every sense of the term. The ZenFone AR is made with virtual reality and augmented reality in mind; therefore it has built-in support for Google Tango & DayDream as expected. Apart from the insane 8 gigs of RAM, the smartphone is powered by multiple other absolute premium-end hardware specs as well.


A customized Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC with vapour cooling system for AR and VR functionalities


5.7-inch Super AMOLED QHD (1440x2560 pixels) edge-to-edge display with a screen to body ratio of 79%


8GB/6GB RAM


23-megapixel Sony IMX318 camera with TriTech+ autofocus system, dual-PDAF, second-gen Laser Focus, 4-axis OIS, 3-axis EIS, continuous-focus and 4K video recording


8-megapixel front shooter with f/2.0 aperture and an 85-degree wide angle lens


128GB/256GB of internal storage with hybrid nano SIM/micro-SD card slot


3300mAh battery


USB Type-C, Bluetooth v4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac


Exclusive Asus ZenUI VR 360 degree app support on PhotoCollage, Gallery, and ZenCircle applications



Everything about the Asus ZenFone AR is premium and up to date, except may be the SD 821 chipset. Make no mistake, it is still the most powerful Qualcomm chip till date, but given that the Snapdragon 835 has already been announced and it will be better than the SD 821 in both power-efficiency and performance, Asus may have missed a trick there.
