ASUS launches ZenFone 3 Deluxe with whopping 6GB RAM and Snapdragon 820
Xiaomi Mi5 and the upcoming OnePlus 3 have another Snapdragon 820 powered competitor and it is none other than the ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe. Apart from featuring the world’s fastest mobile chipset in Android running smartphones (the other being Exynos 8890), the device also has a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080p.
Another thing that separates ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe from the top of the high-end smartphone chain is the fact that it features 6GB of RAM, which you don’t often see devices featuring. Another thing is that 256GB is the highest storage model of the smartphone and guess what? It does not support the eMMC standard but the much faster UFS 2.0, which results in higher internal storage read and write speeds. If you choose to purchase the 64GB model, then you’ll be extremely glad to know that the device has a microSD card opening to increase that existing storage to 128GB.
There is a 23-megapixel camera that Asus calls PixelMaster and that features the Sony IMX318 sensor. Using the clever super resolution mode, this camera is capable of capturing images with a maximum resolution of 92 megapixels. The phone has USB-C for charging and sync and if you’re charging the smartphone, you will notice that it provides support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0. As for the price tag and difference color models, ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe is available in the colors grey, silver, and gold and will carry a $500 price tag for the $64GB model.
There is no word on the 256GB model, but if you want to see really fast internal storage read and write speeds, we are confident that you will wait for this one.
