Asus Unveils Zenfone AR, The first Smartphone With 8GB Ram… there is more

Today at CES (The largest tech show on earth 2017) Asus announced two new smartphones, both of
which have been in the rumors quite a lot lately. We’re talking about the
Zenfone AR and Zenfone 3 Zoom.

Asus Zenfone AR is a phone that is trying to drag us into the
future, it is the first smartphone capable of both VR and AR, it’s also only
the second-ever Tango-compatible Android handset. It has a large camera module
that looks like something from Nokia’s now-gone Lumia smartphone series.
The Asus Zenfone AR is a sleek, 5.7″ device with all
the regular features of your modern-day smartphone: a high-res Quad HD display,
a fingerprint scanner, and it’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset
aided by a whopping 8GB of RAM – This makes the Zenfone AR one of the first
phones with 8 gigs of RAM on board, but it is really the augmented reality that
is the king here.
The main snapper is a 23 MP unit using Sony’s IMX318 sensor,
with OIS, EIS, and 4K video recording. Thanks to Google’s Tango requirements,
on the back there’s also a motion tracking camera and a fisheye depth-sensing
The Asus Zenfone AR release date is set for the second
quarter of 2017

    Prof, what's the usefulness of AR? I know there're search engines to provide answer but, i dont want to rely on search engine(s). I know what VR does.
