Asus just announced the first smart phone that is huge step forward. Here are the 5 major things you need to know about the ZenFone AR. It is Tango and Google DayDream Ready which is a big deal. Tango is augmented reality and will open up the door to a ton of new apps and games coming soon!. The 5.7 in display has a WQHD 1440×2560 resolution which is gonna look amazing inside of the Daydream VR headset.A few people have told me that they don’t like big screen phones but I love them. The bigger screen is more enjoyable to watch movies and videos on, Plus bigger phones tend to have better battery life.

Powering the new ZenFone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. Long story short, This it the latest and greatest from Qualcomm and it is optimized for Tango. It was rumored that Samsung would have a smart phone with 8gb of ram this year but Asus beat them to the announcement. Why does a Android phone need so much ram? Asus has mentioned that this is a future proof phone so you should be able to run all the best apps and games for the next few years. The final feature about this phone that I can’t wait to try out in person is the vapor-chamber cooling which is said to keep the phone from getting warm during use. I can’t wait to try it for myself. ZenFone AR will be available in Q2 in North America.
