In Short

Announced during Computex 2016 in Taipei, ASUS is following up with another series of zen — the ZenFone 3. Looking very much like the ZenFone 2, the ZenFone 3 comes in three variants, each with their own flavor. The ZenFone 3 sports a glass back with metal trim. The ZenFone 3 Deluxe kicks it up a bit with a full aluminum design. The ZenFone 3 Ultra carries this out, adding flatter profile and rounded corners.

Inside the hardware varies from bottom to top. All three designs feature a 1080p display, with the ZenFone 3 at 5.5-inches and the Deluxe at 5.7-inches. The Ultra rings in at a wild 6.8-inches. The ZenFone 3 is running an octa-core Snapdragon 625 with 4GB of RAM. The Ultra is kicking it with a Snapdragon 652 and 4GB of RAM. The Deluxe sports a Snapdragon 820 with a crazy 6GB of RAM. A 4,600mAh battery powers the Ultra, while the ZenFone 3 and Deluxe get a more humble 3,000mAh battery.

Cameras are a thing in the ZenFone 3 as well, with the base model rocking a 16MP Sony sensor with OIS and EIS, laser autofocus and dual-tone flash. The Deluxe and Ultra go up to a 23MP IMX318 sensor with OIS & EIS.

All three models feature USB-C, QuickCharge 3.0, and fingerprint scanners.
