CES 2017: Asus Unveils a Smartphone with a Battery of 5,000 mAh and Another with 8 GB of RAM
on its conference at the CES 2017, Asus unveiled two new smartphones. The first one rank as a mid-range, where the latter ranks as a high-end (despite a 2016 CPU).
The first smartphone is the ZenFone 3 Zoom. It has two cameras in the back (a 12-megapixel with a large zoom and another 12-megapixel with a wide-angle). The optical stabilization is included also, as well as the possibility of filming in 4K. Asus says the autofocus is only 0.03 second. With both sensors, users can create photos with the bokeh effect, like with the iPhone 7 Plus.
For the rest, the screen is 5.5 inches (1920 x 1080 pixels), the processor is the Snapdragon 625 and the battery is 5,000 mAh. That's a lot, much more than other smartphones. For RAM, storage and other components, Asus says nothing at the moment. The smartphone will arrive next month for an unknown price again.
The second smartphone is the ZenFone AR, it is compatible with the technology of augmented reality Tango of Google. This model comes with a 5.7-inch (2560 x 1440 pixel) display, the Snapdragon 821 processor and 8 GB of RAM. This is the first smartphone to have as much RAM. On the camera side, the sensor is 23 megapixels with optical stabilization. The other features will be unveiled later, according to Asus.
ZenFone AR will be marketed in the second quarter of 2017. Again, the price is not yet revealed.
