ZenFone AR

ZenFone AR is a next-generation smartphone that represents a significant advancement in mobile augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) and technologies. Developed in close cooperation with Google and Qualcomm, the ZenFone AR delivers high-quality AR and VR experiences. ZenFone AR is the thinnest and lightest Tango-enabled device, featuring a powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 821 processor that is optimized for the demanding, real-time computing requirements of Tango. ZenFone AR’s powerful performance and innovativeTriCam system work in conjunction with Tango technology to enable smooth and compelling smartphone AR experiences.

Additionally, Android™ 7.0 ‘Nougat’ lets users get the most out ofZenFone AR with new multitasking multi-window display and other enhancements that deliver a great mobile experience.

ASUS TriCam system for Tango experiences

ZenFone AR uses an ASUS TriCamsystem consisting of three rear cameras — a motion-tracking camera, depth-sensing camera and high-resolution 23MP PixelMaster 3.0 camera — which provide input to Tango, enabling smartphone AR experiences for users. The motion-tracking camera letsZenFone AR keep track of its location as it moves through three-dimensional space. The depth-sensing camera letsZenFone AR determine its distance from objects by projecting an infrared (IR) laser and measuring the amount of time it takes for IR beam to bounce off objects and return to the phone. The 23MP PixelMaster 3.0 camera features a Sony IMX318 image sensor to vividly capture the environment as a backdrop for AR experiences while serving as an excellent, high resolution camera for photos.

AR is a rapidly growing area of mobile technology, and one that consumers are extremely excited about. ASUS and Google have partnered with well-known brands, such as Gap, to bring the smartphone AR experience to customers. Tango also provides developers with the ability to deliver consistent AR experiences across devices and helps users easily discover a wide range of new apps, such as exciting games, home decor utilities, and apps that provide new ways to explore. To date, the ecosystem has growing quickly and there are plenty of apps on Google Play that are Tango-enabled.

Daydream by Google

The Asus ZenFone AR has a 5.7-inch WQHD (2K) (1440 x 2560) display. This large size and high resolution screen makes it ideal for VR apps and games when used with Daydream View, immersing users in incredible VR worlds that appear detailed and lifelike. Super AMOLED technology enables deep blacks and high contrast, further enhancing image quality and 3D effects.

With ZenFone AR and Daydream View, users can explore new worlds with apps like Street View and Fantastic Beasts, kick back in a personal VR cinema with YouTube VR and Netflix, and get in the game with Gunjack 2, Need for Speed and more.

Impressive audio, inside and out

In addition to video, high-quality audio is an important component of immersive AR and VR experiences. To fulfill this demand, ZenFone AR comes with ASUSSonicMaster 3.0 technology. A five-magnet speaker driven by a powerful NXP smart amplifier delivers clear, expansive sound that can be played at high volumes without distortion.ZenFone AR can also output certified High-Resolution Audio (HRA) to compatible devices at 24-bit/192kHz — or 4X CD-quality. DTS Headphone:X™ provides virtual 7.1-channel surround sound for immersive entertainment experiences. A premium Asus ZenEar S Headset available inbox.

Cutting-edge hardware forAR and VR performance

ZenFone AR is designed with the latest, top-of-the-line components to provide high-quality AR and VR experiences. This cutting-edge hardware also makesZenFone AR one of the most powerful smartphones available.

ZenFone AR features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor that has been specially optimized for the demanding, real-time calculations of AR. ASUS worked closely with Qualcomm Technologies and Google engineers to help develop methods for efficiently distributing computer-vision workloads, as well as rapidly processing movement and positioning instructions with Tango to deliver smooth, immersive, and compelling AR experiences. It also features the desktop-class Qualcomm Adreno 530 graphics-processing unit (GPU) to deliver supercharged graphics performance and handle the graphical demands of Tango and Daydream applications with ease.

World’s first smartphone with 8GB of RAM

ZenFone AR is the world’s first smartphone with 8GB of RAM, enabling it to handle the demands of AR and VR with ease. It also helps with heavy multitasking, allowing users to keep dozens of apps open simultaneously, and instantly switch among them.ZenFone AR also includes 128GB of fast UFS 2.0 storage, enabling users to store a large library of apps, games, videos, photos, and music, and open them quickly.

Thin and light metallic design

ZenFone AR packages its advanced technology in a beautifully minimalist, light, and compact design. A precision-milled metal frame and slim, 4.8mm edge provides a luxurious look that is further enhanced by stainless-steel accents around the camera. These accents also help protect the camera lens from scratches. ZenFone AR has an ergonomic curved shape with a 4.8mm edge and a tactile, leather-patterned rear surface that feels great in the hand.

23 megapixel ASUS PixelMaster 3.0 — Capture reality, fast and steady

ZenFone AR also features an advanced camera that takes beautiful, high-resolution photos and videos in any lighting condition. It has an ASUSPixelMaster 3.0 camera that uses the world’s highest resolution camera sensor (a 23MP Sony IMX318) and the ASUS TriTech autofocus system. Other key camera features include:

Four-axis optical image stabilization (OIS) photo and three-axis electronic image stabilization (EIS) video stabilization — Enables sharp photos and shake-free videos.

0.03-second ASUS TriTech™ System — exclusive TriTech autofocus technology is the ultimate integration of phase-detection autofocus, laser autofocus and subject-tracking autofocus, the result is perfectly focus and sharp image every time – day on night, indoor or out.

Super Resolution mode — Creates ultra-high resolution, 92MP photos by capturing and combining four native 23MP photos to create a single image with exceptional clarity, greater detail, and less noise.

RAW file support — ZenFone AR offers photographers the freedom to shoot and store compositions in RAW format.

Review : Belkin Mixit DuraTek Lightning Cable

Belkin is well known for consumer electronics that specializes in connectivity devices. Belkin provides number of products both in consumer as well as commercial product lines which includes iPod, iPad and iPhone accessories among many other.
Belkin Mixit DuraTek Lightning cable is not like any other lightning cable available in the market. DuraTek cables are made from best quality of materials for maximum durability. Kevlar fibers reinforce the inner wiring for added strength, abrasion-resistant nylon forms a tough outer jacket, and highly flexible insulation minimizes damage from friction. The strength created by these resilient ingredients is further enhanced by smart design details to reinforce the cable at its stress points. This ensures the finished product can withstand even the most demanding routines, and perform above and beyond expectation to deliver a cable that borders on indestructible.

Built with DuPont KEVLAR

One of the key ingredients of DuraTek’s secret strength is Kevlar. This resistant aramid fiber is used the world over for everything from bullet resistant vests and crash helmets to surfboards and extreme sports gear. Strong Kevlar strands are built into the cable adding ultimate strength. Able to flex without stretching, these fibers provide structure to keep the wires inside from damage.

DOUBLE BRAIDED NYLON

The external cable braiding is made from a premium and hard-wearing nylon material. Double braiding is a technique used in rope making and gives maximum strength and added resilience. This makes the cable abrasion resistant, more flexible, lightweight and less prone to fraying.

5 reasons why a powerful smartphone battery is the ultimate requisite for travel

In today’s time bound, always-on-the go routine, travelling has become a crucial avenue for solace. It not only allows us an opportunity to escape monotony, but has also become synonymous with living to our heart’s content, accumulating everlasting memories in the process.


Across age groups, a smartphone becomes a requisite for every vacation. According to a 2016 study conducted by Expedia and Egencia, most travellers rank their smartphones of highest importance among other essentials. Considering how speedily they have become an integral part of our lives, it hardly comes as a surprise that we sub-consciously resort to these devices while travelling. What remains constant throughout achieving these outputs is a smartphone that is backed with a powerful battery.
ASUS with its newly launched PowerMaster app aims to provide its Zenfone 3 Max users a battery extending solution that aids in squeezing more power out of your smartphones. With a dashboard boasting of 9 technologies that delivers performance depending on the user’s usage, and preferences, PowerMaster app is the answer to a variety of your battery woes. Enlisted below are 5 ways
PowerMaster app adds value to your overall travel experience.

1) Find your way
In a foreign country, it is easy to miss a turn and find yourself in an unknown territory. In such a scenario, a smartphone with navigation enabled can be your saviour. But for the GPS to fully deliver its potential, the smartphone needs to be backed by a long-lasting battery. ASUS’ PowerMaster app, with its unique Boost mode, allows for clearing of unnecessary background apps after an extended session.
This ensures that your smartphone’s processor is unburdened and can be used optimally to run the required app without compromising on the smartphone’s performance. So, rest assured, ASUS’ advanced technology is equipped to not only guide you back to safety, but also to encourage you to explore the hinterlands.
2) Re-living moments The charm of travelling lies in the beauty that you are exposed to. Imagine you’re witnessing a mesmerising sunset that you wish to re-live at a later moment and you take your smartphone out to capture it, but your phone’s battery decides to play spoilt-sport. The disappointment experienced is like no other. This is where PowerMaster app’s Last Longer technology comes to the rescue. It allows the user to optimise battery savings per charge. It also allows auto-denial of 3rd party installed apps from auto-startups, detects battery draining apps, cleans-up apps in stand-by, and offers quick toggles that help in saving battery.
3) Your personal entertainment Music. It’s such an important part of our lives. We have an emotional connection to it. It has the power to make us happy or sad. It motivates us to exercise or work harder. It relaxes and calms us. It’s hard to
think of anything else in the world that has this power. However it consumes your battery power too. Now, you only have to make sure that your smartphone has a battery that lasts. With ASUS
PowerMaster’s Autostart Manager, you can customize and allow the Start-up apps that you really need.
This helps in saving on precious power that can be rightfully used where it is most needed. Additionally, the solution also provides a variety of Battery modes that are built to cater to different lifestyles. The 5 different battery modes provided are – Performance mode, Normal mode, Power Saving mode, Super Saving mode and Customized mode along with 2 Smart Switches – Switch by Battery level and Switch by Schedule, that tailor make your battery’s performance. All these modes allow intelligent battery saving, and keep you on the go longer.
4) Stay connected and safe While travelling is an exhilarating experience, safety becomes a primary concern along with keeping your loved ones updated on your whereabouts. You can even delete battery consuming apps to save battery.  Here’s how to deactivate Instagram so that you do not scroll the feeds and ruin the phone’s battery. To ensure that the communication is a hassle-free affair, your smartphone’s battery needs to be potent enough to support the longer active hours.

PowerMaster’s 2X Lifespan mode is just the answer you are looking for. This technology aids intelligent charging of the phone while decreasing loss of capacity from the usual 15% to an incredible 7%. It is built such that your phone’s functionality is optimized to support your travel quests. Besides the longevity of your phone’s battery, their security design is also a critical feature. PowerMaster’s PowerSafe technology ensures that Zenfone 3 Max’s batteries are one of the safest in the smartphone market. They feature technologies like Temperature Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Reset Protection, I/O Over-Voltage & Over-Current Protection, Battery TCO Protection, Charger Protection, that are in abidance with the stringent most safety regulation.

5) Personal source of entertainment

Travelling also gives you the space and time to catch up on a lot of books and keep yourself entertained
for an extended period. With PowerMaster’s Scan mode, the user is provided with a list of suggested
optimizations that aid in power conservation. Additionally, because Zenfone 3 Max smartphones boast
of large capacity batteries equipped with the Reverse Charging feature, you can charge other USB
Devices with an OTG cable. This ensures that your other devices are also charged and you never run out of power.

TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 1, 2017 — ASUS today announced an all-new version of ZenPad 10 (Z301ML/MFL), a premium 10.1-inch Android™ tablet that combines unique styling, incredible visuals and audio, fast performance and long battery life to create the ultimate tablet for entertainment.

– ZenPad 10 features a gorgeous, fashion-inspired design with clean lines and an embossed woven texture for a luxurious appearance that’s unique among mobile devices. Ergonomic rounded edges make ZenPad 10 comfortable to hold and carry, and its polished metallic frame adds a bold visual accent.
