The ASUS ZenFone AR has many firsts, making it almost seem like a working prototype, rather than a phone you’d use as a daily driver. We got our curious hands on it to find out for sure.
Look at all its pioneering features: It’s the first smartphone with both Google Tango AR and Daydream VR compatibility, and an almost unnecessarily excessive 8GB of memory. This is also the first ZenFone with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
It’s certainly a breath of fresh, innovative air after all the ZenFones that felt like they just followed established blueprints. The ZenFone AR doesn’t even have a generational number attached to it, choosing instead to fit in between the current generation of ZenFones and the upcoming fourth installment.
So, phone of the future we can use today, or just a sign of things to come? Watch the embedded video and help us come to a conclusion.
