Zenfone 3 Deluxe 3

Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe launched at Computex 2016 running on the Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor with 5.7-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display with a screen-to-body ratio of 76%.

It runs on the new ZEN UI 3.0 which is based on Android Marshmallow. Asus is really proud of the metal-unibody construction of the Zenfone 3 Deluxe as it doesn't have any visible antenna bands.

For the shutterbugs it features a 23MP rear camera which uses a Sony IMX318 sensor with 4-axis optical image stabilization and 3-axis electronic image stabilization. Asus is calling its new focusing tech, TriTech focus which automatically tries to focus on the content you want to shoot. You have a combo of laser and phase-detection autofocus to to get a quick 0.03 second auto-focus.

Alongwith the 23MP rear camera you also have a fingerprint sensor at the back. The front houses an 8MP camera alongwith the capacitive buttons. You will be able to get the Zenfone 3 Deluxe in either 64GB, 128GB or 256GB storage variants.

The Zenfone 3 Deluxe is also a dual-SIM 4G LTE device like previous Zenfone devices and supports VoLTE, dual-band WiFi and has a USB Type-C port which supports Quick Charge 3.0 for the 3000 mAh battery. There's support for high-res audio as well with NXP amplifier.
