The ZenFone 3 Zoom wasn’t the only phone ASUS brought to CES, introducing us to the ZenFone AR as well. Of course, we had a feeling that such a phone would get a reveal thanks to an early leak from Qualcomm, but at this point, that’s neither here nor there. The ZenFone AR has been made official, and it packs support for Google Tango and Daydream into the same device.
That’s a pretty big deal, because so far, the only support we’ve seen for Google’s Tango augmented reality platform was in the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. Just as well, only a small number of handsets support Google’s virtual reality platform Daydream at this early stage. So far, there hasn’t been a single phone that supports both, but that’s about to change with the ZenFone AR.
During its press conference, ASUS spent a lot of time talking about the ZenFone AR’s TriCam system. That amount of promotion is justifiable, as Google Tango needs quite the set up to implement its vision for augmented reality.
