This Is the First Android Smartphone in the World with 8GB of RAM

Remember when I talked about Google’s second tango-enabled phone with a design that made me yawn? Well, the specs definitely had the opposite effect.

Asus has unveiled the second Google Tango-enabled phone at the CES 2017 event, and it’s the first phone that has as much RAM as our computers.
The ZenFone AR packs a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display (2,560 x 1,440 resolution), Gorilla Glass 4, Snapdragon 821, (I wonder why they didn’t go with Snapdragon 835),  6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 32/64/128/256 GB of UFS 2.0 storage, microSD support, dual-SIM support, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, USB-C support, 3,300 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support, and Android 7.0 Nougat. You will also get four cameras on board, three on the back, part of the TriCam system required to enable Project Tango features — a 23-megapixel main rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, f/2.0 4-axis optical image stabilization, a motion-tracking camera, and depth-sensing sensor. Meanwhile, on the front, there’s an 8-megapixel front-facing wide-angle selfie camera.

 
Asus has not revealed the price, yet, but you don’t need to be told that this will come with a high price tag, do you?

    Snapdragon 821… Seems many folks are shying away from the 835. Maybe the US variant of the note 8.
    It’s nice to see despite the massive internal storage it still has a micro SD slot with 256gb capacity. This is impressive. So after winning the motherboard wars Asus wants to meddle into Sammy’s terrain. Well let’s see.

    … WELL, I JUST HOPE THAT THE SPEC SHEET WOULDN’T BE A LET DOWN BY SOFTWARE OPTIMIZATION. THE SPEC IS REALLY DARING AND I HOPE THE RICE WILL NOT BRING WAR? FOR ME, TANGO AND DAY DREAM STILL HAVE A LINE OF DIFFERENCE THAT THE OEM AND GOOGLE EVEN AGREED TO.
    WISHFUL THINKING OF 2017, WILL LIKE TO PLAY WITH THIS PHONE FOR JUST SIX MONTHS.
    WELL DONE ASUS AND THUMBS UP FOR YOUR SOFTWARE UPDATES…
