Kicking things off is the new ASUS Zenfone 3. This base model ZenFone comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a Snapdragon 625 processor mated with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

In the camera department, the ZenFone 3 will come with a 16-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. Keeping the lights on is a 3,000 mAh battery that will charge via USB Type C. It’s also got a fingerprint reader mounted on the back.

Next, we have the new flagship-level smartphone from ASUS, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe. Inside the 5.7-inch smartphone with a Full HD SuperAMOLED display sits a flagship-level Snapdragon 820 processor mated to a whopping 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS2.0 internal storage. Those are some monstrous specifications even by flagship smartphone standards.

When it comes to camera optics, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe will get a 23-megapixel primary camera with ASUS’ PixelMaster 3.0 technology which is designed to take low light shots. It’s also assisted by a combination of a laser autofocus system and PDAF for focusing speeds of only 0.3 seconds. The camera is protected by a Sapphire Crystal glass.

This smartphone also comes with an ultra-thin 1.3mm bezel with a large 79% screen-to-body ratio and a think 4.2mm edge profile.

The ZenFone 3 Deluxe will be priced at USD499 (around RM2,052).
