The ZenFone line of smartphones has always been positioned as midrange models with great price-to-performance ratios. Though with the release of the ZenFone 3 line, ASUS went with a more premium feel with their phones; even the ZenFone 3 Max punches above its price-point looks wise. But for those looking for the highest end of the ZenFone line, Asus has released their flagship ZenFone 3 Deluxe.
ASUS has announced the launch of ZenFone 3 Deluxe, the flagship model of the new ZenFone 3 Series designed for users who demand a smartphone with the very best performance and features. The ZenFone 3 Deluxe has the highest-specification components of the ZenFone 3 Series models and is the ultimate expression of ASUS smartphone design.
The ZenFone 3 incorporates many world’s-first technical achievements and breakthroughs, including:
World’s first all-aluminum-alloy smartphone with invisible-antenna design
ZenFone 3 Deluxe features an incredibly slim and elegant all-metal unibody chassis, and is the world’s first metal-bodied smartphone with an invisible-antenna design for uncompromised signal quality.
World’s first smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor
ZenFone 3 Deluxe is the world’s first smartphone powered by the brand-new Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 821 octa-core processor. With a clock speed of 2.4GHz, this top-of-the-line processor — built on Qualcomm’s Kryo architecture — is the world’s most powerful 14nm smartphone processor. Combined with a desktop-grade Adreno™ 530 graphics processing unit (GPU), 6GB of RAM, an X12 Category 13 4G LTE modem with three-carrier aggregation (3CA) support, 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi antennas, and 256GB of storage, ZenFone 3 Deluxe delivers exceptional performance and outstanding connectivity.
World’s first smartphone with 6GB RAM and 256GB UFS 2.0 storage
ZenFone 3 Deluxe features 6GB of RAM — more than in any smartphone currently available — giving it the power to load apps rapidly, run even the most demanding games smoothly, and keep multiple apps open simultaneously. This large amount of RAM is accompanied by 256GB of high-speed UFS 2.0 storage.
World’s first smartphone with PixelMaster 3.0 camera featuring 23MP Sony IMX318 sensor
ZenFone 3 Deluxe raises the bar for mobile photography with its ASUS PixelMaster 3.0 camera, the world’s first smartphone camera to feature the 23MP Sony Exmor RS™ IMX318 image sensor. It has a bright f/2.0 wide-aperture lens, combined with four-axis optical image stabilization (OIS) that eliminates shakes caused by hand movements and enables the use of shutter speeds that are up to four stops slower than traditional smartphone cameras.
