A few months ago, we had the opportunity to know what the famous Project Tango was about. The augmented reality is for manufacturers like ASUS a perfect choice in smartphones, and now we are in a new terminal of this manufacturer.
With today’s launch ASUS ZenFone AR becomes the second Android smartphone in the market compatible with Project Tango, and in fact, its own name confirms the commitment to the augmented reality for a proposal different from most smartphones in the market.
A ‘High-end’ Tango Project
The rumors that had appeared on this device outlined a couple of days ago that we could find in him. Among its hardware components is the presence of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, a processor that is protagonist in the last high end of the market but now is overshadowed by the recent presentation of the new Snapdragon 835.
This processor makes this model a supervitamin version of the smartphone that we had already seen in the first appearance of Project Tango on a smartphone. The Lenovo PHABP2 Pro counted for example with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652, a microprocessor clearly inferior in benefits to the 821.
The ZenFone AR also has up to 8 GB of RAM (the final amount depends on the region in which it is launched) to enhance those experiences both augmented reality and attention, also virtual reality, especially by the support of experiences Of Google Daydream, Google’s new virtual reality platform.
This terminal has a Super AMOLED screen of 5.7 inches and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, in addition to an “immersive” speaker system that supports High-Res Audio and also DTS sound.

Cameras are the key
The new protagonist of Project Tango bases all those experiences of augmented reality in the operation of its triple camera system, which instead of serving to add pure photographic characteristics allows to scan spaces in 3D and then to embed virtual objects on screen on real scenarios that we see onscreen.
In this case, the ASUS ZenFone AR has the TriCam system with three sensors. In the set we have a camera of 23 Mpíxeles to which two other of lower resolution are added to be able to offer the data of record of the movement and the depth sensors
Thanks to these cameras, ZenFone AR is able to interpret that data, images, videos, space and movement and transfer that experience to the screen in which compatible applications allow to offer new experiences in the field of augmented reality. There are currently more than 35 Tango compatible applications.
Availability and price of ASUS ZenFone AR
ASUS has not given ASUS ZenFone AR specific regions or pricing at this time, but we do know that the device will be launched in the second quarter of 2017. We will update this data as soon as it becomes available.
