In the ongoing CES 2017, a major focus has been on Virtual Reality enabled devices and services. It has been clear for some time now that the future lies on the virtual side of our world. The latest company to jump on the bandwagon of VR and Augmented Reality is Asus's Zenfone AR series smartphone with 92 megapixel camera sensor.
The phone is the first to utilise Google's Tango and Daydream technologies that a built-in sensor to overlay digital 3-D image in real world (a lot more refined than Pokemon Go). Anothe major feature is its camera. The camera sensor used is Sony's IMX318 which it claims to combine four native 23 MP images to create a 92 MP photo. The last such leap in camera department was made by Nokia Pureview 808 way back in 2012 with its 41 MP sensor.
The beast of a phone will be powered by Snapdragon 821, instead of the latest Snapdragon 835, indicating that the phone was long in planning. It also packs mind-boggling 8 GB Ram to support its grand ambitions. Asus is betting on VR and AR and if the current trends are anything to go by, it could make a big splash in the already crowded smartphone market.
