ASUS Zenfone AR to Launch June 24, Features Tango, Daydream

Taiwanese smartphone maker ASUS sets its eyes to launch the newest member of its Zenfone series, the ASUS Zenfone AR, right after a hackathon event in Manila this coming June 24.

ASUS Zenfone AR to Launch June 24, Features Tango, Daydream

The ASUS Zenfone AR is the company's first Tango- and Daydream-capable smartphone. Tango and Daydream are technologies that allows you to experience augmented reality (aka virtual reality) via a set of sensors, and a couple of equipment, like a VR headset. The technology doesn't offer much practical use, except for maybe letting you preview what an area of your house would look like if you place a new furniture, or anything to this effect. Leisure-wise, you'd have lots going on with Tango, such as superimposing objects to areas on your smartphone's display.

The ASUS Zenfone AR from what it looks like is the company's most premium phone to date. It doesn't follow the standard Zenfone 3 front (it has a physical home button), and has a leather rear paired with a metal frame that further accentuates the premium feel. It also has that unsightly rear camera that houses all the imaging power of the device, plus the essence of what a Tango device is.

There's no price disclosed yet for the Zenfone AR, but it should be revealed on the June 24 event.
