Asus Zenfone AR Tango-enabled & Daydream ready smartphone leaked ahead of launch

Qualcomm has mistakenly revealed some of the key details of the upcoming Asus Zenfone AR smartphone, which is set for CES 2017 unveiling.

As per the leaked post, the Asus Zenfone AR is powered by the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset. It is already known that the Zenfone AR is Tango-enabled and the post reveals that the handset is also Daydream ready, which makes it the first smartphone of its kind.


Well known tech tipster Evan Blass recently shared renders of the upcoming device in a tweet, before the official announcement of the phone on January 4.

“With Zenfone AR and the Daydream View headset and controller, you’ll be able to explore new worlds with apps like Google Street View and Fantastic Beasts, dive into your personal VR cinema with YouTube, Netflix, Hulu and HBO, and get your game on with Gunjack 2, LEGO BrickHeadz, Need for Speed and dozens other titles,” explained Asus’ online post as reported by GSMArena.

Lenovo Phab 2 Pro was the first Tango-enabled smartphone. Therefore, ASUS Zenfone AR will be the second one to be Tango-enabled, but will be the first to support both Tango and Daydream platforms.
