ZenFone 3 from Asus revealed

zenfone3Asus is more often than not a name that is associated with notebooks, computers, and of course, graphics cards that will be able to churn out frame rates at insane levels (as well as entry level ones that do not burn a huge hole in your pocket). However, there have been instances where Asus has rolled out their fair number of smartphones to the masses – and for good reason, too, as their ZenFone range have catered to many people’s needs for a smartphone without breaking the bank. This year at Computex 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan, Asus has taken the opportunity to introduce the spanking new ZenFone 3 to the masses.

The Asus ZenFone 3 is a feature-packed smartphone that brings premium design and empowering performance to just about everyone. Your eyes will definitely appreciate the gorgeous 5.5” Full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) Super IPS+ display with up to 500cd/m2 brightness, ensuring that apps, videos, and games look their best. Sporting a narrow bezel, the Asus ZenFone 3 delivers a 77.3% screen-to-body ratio for a maximized viewing area in a slim and compact body. Both the front as well as the rear of the phone will arrive encased with scratch-resistant 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass, where it gently curves to make the edge of the phone completely smooth.

Other specifications include a 16MP camera with ASUS TriTech autofocus that automatically selects 2nd generation laser, phase detection and continuous auto focus so that it can achieve precise focus in a matter of just 0.03 seconds. Not only that, it is the first smartphone in the world that runs on the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa‑core processor, carries an integrated X9 LTE modem, has 802.11ac MU-MIMO Wi-Fi connectivity, and up to 4GB of RAM, in addition to an integrated fingerprint sensor for security purposes.

Seems to sound like it is quite the winner, don’t you think so?
