Over at the Asus Taiwan and Hong Kong launch earlier today, the tech maker unveiled a bit of a surprise in the form of the world’s first Snapdragon 821 smartphone.
Asus already offered the Zenfone 3 Deluxe with a solid specification, but today unveiled the phone with an upgrade from Snapdragon 820 to Snapdragon 821. The updated chip runs at 2.4Ghz in the Zenfone 3 and benefits from 6GB RAM, faster Adreno 530 GPU, dual SIM support and a whopping 256GB memory.
While the Deluxe get’s the chipset upgrade, Asus will still be offering the Snapdragon 820 in more affordable versions of the Zenfone 3 which includes a 4GB RAM model with 32GB storage of a 6GB version with 64GB memory (all three phones also get SD card support for 128GB SD cards).
Each Zenfone 3 also gets the same Corning Gorilla Glass 4 Super AMOLED display, NFC, 3000mAh battery, and 23 mega-pixel main camera with F2.0 aperture.
