Asus announced the ZenFone 3 Deluxe smartphone back in July as the first smartphone to come with the latest Qualcomm processor, Snapdragon 821. It's part of the larger ZenFone 3 family, which includes the ZenFone 3, ZenFone 3 Ultra, ZenFone 3 Laser, and ZenFone 3 Max.
ZenFone 3 Deluxe and Laser have been recently listed on Amazon in the US. They come with 1-year warranty and ship within 2 to 5 weeks.
Additionally, the smartphones have free shipping and are unlocked.
ZenFone 3 Deluxe has a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED FHD display and dual SIM support. The smartphone carries a price tag of $530.48 and has a metal case. However, it seems that the version listed on Amazon is not the flagship one with Snapdragon 821 CPU and 256GB of internal storage.
Instead, the smartphone features a Snapdragon 820 CPU and 64GB of internal memory, with the option to expand to 128GB using a microSD card. The SD821 variant was recently made available for purchase on the company's website for a price of about $800.
ZenFone 3 Laser runs SD430 and has a price tag of $206.95
This variant comes with the same 6GB of RAM and a very powerful 23MP rear camera with laser focus and 4k recording. Front camera capacity reaches 8MP and the smartphone comes with a 3,000mAh battery and Quick Charge 3.0, which allows users to charge 60% of the battery in just 40 minutes.
It also has USB Type-C ports and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and it's highly likely that it will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat soon.
ZenFone 3 Laser isn't as powerful as the ZenFone 3 Deluxe and thus carries a smaller price tag of just $206.95. The smartphone runs Snapdragon 430 CPU, has 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory. Both devices should work on GSM/LTE networks, but not on CDMA/LTE carriers like Verizon or Sprint.
