Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe to get Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821

However, the new chip will definitely bring large-scale improvements to computing performance and augment VR integration, including a 10 per cent performance bump over the Snapdragon 820. Qualcomm's announcement came on Tuesday and fans would agree that the top-end features will be a sure hit among consumers. The other two phones, Asus ZenFone 3 and Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra will come with either 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage or 4GB of RAM with 32GB storage, and will arrive in Taiwan and Hongkong, priced at $560 and $500, respectively, Uthman reported. However, the company decided to make a significant upgrade to its chipset, turning it into the Snapdragon 821, which Qualcomm announced just this week.

The ZenFone 3 Deluxe is equipped with 23MP rear camera featuring the latest Sony IMX318 image sensor, a large f/2.0 aperture lens, and 4-axis optical image stabilization for high-resolution, blur-free, and low-noise photos in nearly any lighting condition.

ASUS was at the Computex 2016 event and back then, the Taiwanese tech giant announced a set of new ZenFone 3 smartphones that is led by the flagship ZenFone 3 Deluxe.

The three models share the following specs: a 5.7in 1080p AMOLED touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 4, 3000mAh battery, 23MP f/2.0 rear camera with OIS, dual-tone flash and laser autofocus with an 8MP f/2.0 front cam. The top-of-the line Deluxe retails for approximately $780 and will begin shipping to Taiwan and Hong Kong this fall, Engadget reports. It offers connectivity options of 4G LTE and other standard connectivity options. It also provides an expandable storage.

The new ZenPad 3S runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is powered by a hexa-core MediaTek processor. There's also a fingerprint scanner to go along with it. This will be followed by more shipments in August for all models in the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand.

Although its standout feature, power isn't the Asus Zenfone 3's only highlight. Let us know your thoughts immediately.
