ASUS announced a range of new products at Computex this week, including the all-aluminium ZenFone 3 Deluxe.
ASUS has been playing in the mobile market for some time now with fair success. Although no official numbers have been released the company increased their handset sales projection last year from 17 million in February to 30 million in April, making many speculate a growing market share for ASUS. Now, more than a year later, the company has announced an entire new range of handsets and computers.
The star of Computex was the ZenFone 3 Deluxe, the flagship of the company’s ZenFone family. It features a 5.7-inch full HD Super AMOLED display with a 79% screen-to-body ratio, making it similar in size to the Samsung Galazy Note 5. The Deluxe is fitted with 6GB ram and an Andreno 530 GPU, giving it more computational power than the Note 5.
Other notable features of the Deluxe is the 23 Megapixel camera fitted the latest Sony image sensor, 4-axis image stabilization and near-instant focus and subject tracking. The phone is also fitted with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a five-magnet speaker and NXP smart amplifier – allowing for better sound quality.
The other two phones in the family is the ZenFone 3 and the ZenFone 3 Ultra, respectively fitted with 5.5 and 6.8-inch screens.
There’s currently no word on whether or not the ASUS smartphones will be coming to South Africa, but we’ll keep you updated nevertheless.
