Starting off with the ASUS Zenfone 3, pricing for the ASUS Zenfone 3 ZE520KL, which features a 5.2″ display and 3GB of RAM, will be at RM1499, while the larger 5.5″ variant with 4GB of RAM will cost RM1699. For that price you will be getting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor running at 2.0 GHz, based on the latest 14nm manufacturing node for up to 35% better power efficiency over its predecessors. A 16 MP f/2.0 camera with the Sony Exmor IMX 298 featuring TriTech AF — combining laser AF, PDAF and standard CDAF for super-fast focusing — and OIS technology.
Moving up the ladder, we have the ASUS Zenfone 3 Ultra ZU680KL, which comes with a massive 6.8″ display that is optimized for watching videos and movies thanks to dedicated ASUS Tru2Life+ technology. A Snapdragon 652 is paired with 4GB of RAM allows you to multitask with that huge screen, while 64GB of expandable storage should satisfy even the most avid video hoarders. The camera is a 23 MP Sony Exmor IMX 318 module, with f/2.0 aperture and TriTech AF as well as OIS. Price wise, it will come in at RM2599.
If that is still not enough for you, then you will be pleased that the flagship ASUS Zenfone 3 Deluxe will start from RM2599 for the 64GB variant, with the absolute highest end 256GB variant going for RM3299. The powerful Snapdragon 820 or 821 SoC will be inside the Zenfone 3 Deluxe’s premium aluminium unibody, with a 6GB of RAM for insane levels of performance in a smartphone. Camera wise, we will be looking at a 23 MP Sony Exmor IMX 318 module again, similar to the one in the ASUS Zenfone 3 Ultra. It will also come with the TriTech AF and OIS technologies. Topping it all off, is the 5.7″ FHD display with ASUS Tru2Life technology.
While the above three devices are pretty pricey compared to ASUS’ previous generations of Zenfones, well, ASUS has not forgotten to announce phones for those on a tighter budget. Say hello to the ASUS Zenfone 3 Laser and Zenfone 3 Max.
The ASUS Zenfone 3 Laser will cost RM999, offering a Snapdragon 430 paired with 4GB of RAM. The camera chops of the ASUS Zenfone 3 Laser is courtesy of a 13 MP PixelMaster camera sourced from Sony, paired with a super-fast laser autofocusing system for quick focusing in 0.03 seconds. OIS is not present in the lower end models, but the ASUS Zenfone 3 Laser will feature EIS. The display is a 5.5″ FHD panel, which is protected by a stylish 2.5D curved sheet of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
If battery life is what you are after, then look no further than the ASUS Zenfone 3 Max. The ASUS Zenfone 3 Max features a huge 4100 mAh battery, which is the second largest in the Zenfone 3 family aside from the one in the ASUS Zenfone 3 Ultra. The ASUS Zenfone 3 Max promises up to 30 days of standby time or 18 hours of surfing on a WiFi connection. Keeping everything running smoothly on the 5.2″ HD IPS display is a Mediatek quad-core CPU mated to 3GB of RAM. A 13MP f/2.2 rear camera is here, but it lacks the fancy tech that its brethren feature. Price? An affordable RM799.
