Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe Specs & Price – India, Taiwan & China

Asus first announced the Zenfone 3 series of smartphones at the Computex 2016 event, and now some of the devices have started selling, while some will be available in the month of August.

Of the three smartphones present in the Asus Zenfone 3 series, the Zenfone 3 Deluxe is the most advanced in terms of specs, tipped to come with a whopping 6GB of RAM and former fastest processor in the world, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. Now that a successor to the Snapdragon 820 has been announced, the Snapdragon 821 which is 10% faster than its predecessor, Asus has revealed that there will be a variant of the Zenfone 3 Deluxe which will come with the new processor, thereby making it the fastest phone in the world when it’s released.



Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe Specifications (Details)



Deluxe means rich and superior in quality, and the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe is just that. In this review, you’ll find specs that could cause a heart attack (a delightful one, though), so grab something you can hold on to and cuddle. A friend’s face could do, too.

Display & Body Design

The Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe will sport a slightly bigger-than-normal Full HD screen, 5.7 inches with a pixel resolution of 1920 * 1080 pixels. The display is built with Super AMOLED panels, and supports up to 16 million colors.

To make sure all these features are enjoyable for longer, Asus has added Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, which appears to be the latest smartphone glass protection present. It weighs 170 grams.


Memory & Performance

The Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe has a massive 6GB RAM capacity, and comes in three internal storage variants: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. As if that’s not enough, there’s also the option of expanding the internal memory with microSD.

The device has two variants of CPU processors, one with the Snapdragon 820 and the other with the brand new Snapdragon 821, which is currently the fastest smartphone processor in the world. Both processors have quad cores, and will be aided by an Adreno 530 GPU for advanced graphics processing.

With all these specs, this phone promises to be faster than Usain Bolt!. Just my opinion.


Power & Battery

The Zenfone 3 Deluxe runs on a 3000mAh Lithium-Ion battery. This may seem small compared to the batteries some middle-range smartphones pack these days, but check its accompanying features. It comes with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, and is further aided by BoostMaster Fast Charging. It’s not clear if the device has wireless charging abilities.


Connectivity

The Deluxe phone has 4G network connectivity with VoLTE (Voice over LTE) support. Wi-Fi connectivity is tuned up to the maximum, with Wi-Fi technology 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with speeds of 2.4GHz for the first variant and 5GHz for the second variant. It also possesses the latest Bluetooth technology, Bluetooth 4.2.

The device has a dual-SIM interface, with one of the ports a regular micro-SIM port and the other a hybrid Nano-SIM port which doubles as a slot for internal memory expansion. By the way, the already-large internal memory can be further expanded to 256GB with an external microSD card. So if you’re choosing the 256GB variant, you could be staring at 512GB of storage space.

What?! Am I talking about a PC here? Is it not a smartphone? I’m speechless.

The Zenfone3 Deluxe possesses a USB 3.0 Type-C port, meaning it supports USB OTG.


Audio

The Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe comes with dual speakers with five magnets each, promising a delectably rich audio quality. The speakers are accompanied by a NXP Smart Amplifier and Hi-Res Audio (HRA) technology.


Camera

As with other components of the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe, the camera components are fully packed with software features and tweaks. The device sports a 23MP rear camera with a dual-tone LED flash and f/2.0 aperture. Also included in the rear camera is a Sony IMX318 sensor, 6P Largan Lens and Laser Autofocus. The main camera has Optical Image Stability (OIS) and EIS technology.

On the front of the device is an 8MP camera with a f/2.0 aperture, and wide viewing angles. Other features of the camera include Geo-tagging, Panorama recording, HDR mode and Phase Detection.


Software & Other Features
