It is to be noted that Lenovo is the first company to successfully bring Tango AR to mobile device, with its PHAB 2 Pro.

To make a reality out of dream, the ZenFone AR is equipped with a 23-megapixel main camera with Sony IMX318 sensor and 4K video recording capability, and two motion-tracking and depth-sensing cameras. Its partnership with Google is expected to bring more AR apps to the already existing dozens of AR apps that are available on Play Store.

To be able to qualify to run Google's DayDream platform which is already baked into Android Nougat OS it runs, the phone is loaded with a 5.7-inch Quad-HD (2560x1440 pixel) AMOLED display and is powered by Qualcomm latest Snapdragon 821 chipset. The company also touts ZenFone AR "immersive" five-magnet speaker that supports High-Res audio and is enhanced with DTS virtual surround sound system.
