Asus ZenFone 3, ZenWatch 3 And ZenPad 3s 10: US Release Date, Price, Specs, Preorder Details And More


Asus has a few Zen devices in store for fans in the United States, and to come right out with them, the lineup includes the Deluxe Special Edition ZenFone 3, the ZenWatch 3 and the ZenPad 3s 10.

ZenFone 3: The Snapdragon 821-Powered Smartphone That Rivals Google's Pixel In Processor Performance

To start things off, the Deluxe Special Edition ZenFone 3 is Asus' high-end smartphone, packing in the impressive Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 under the hood paired with 6 GB worth of RAM. As everyone can imagine, it's nothing short of a powerhouse.

Sporting a 5.7-inch 1080p AMOLED display, it's definitely geared toward media-hungry consumers. That said, it's equipped with a 23-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front snapper for high-quality shots.

On the storage side of things, it's loaded with 256 GB of expandable default memory. Keeping the lights on is a 3,000 mAh battery.

Staying the pace with the market standard, it's also going to run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.

As for the release date and pricing, it's expected to roll out on Oct. 19 in the United States and hold customers back by $799. For the record, it's unlocked, and it's going to strut down the scene in three color options: Glacier Silver, Titanium Gray and Shimmer Gold.

For those who find it a bit too much, Asus also has a toned-down 5.7-inch model that comes with a Snapdragon 820, 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage for $499.

If that's still a little outside the budget, the smartphone maker also has a 5.5-inch version that houses a Snapdragon 625, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native memory for only $399, but that's obviously in the midrange playing field.

Both of these alternatives are set to launch on Oct. 12.

For the record, anyone's who's already sold can preorder the Deluxe Special Edition ZenFone 3, 5.7-inch variant and the 5.5-inch model at the Asus store.

ZenWatch 3: The Android Wear Smartwatch With A Stainless Steel Build

On the wearable front, Asus is bringing the ZenWatch 3 to the table, and it has finally confirmed the price and release date of the Android Wear smartwatch. Competitively priced, it's going to hit shelves with a $229 tag in early November.

ZenPad 3s 10: The Android Marshmallow Tablet

Last but not least, rolling out alongside the ZenWatch 3 in November is the ZenPad 3s 10. It might not be much for some, but the slab has an Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, MediaTek MT8176 chip, 4 GB of RAM and a huge 5,900 mAh battery, all under a 9.7-inch display with a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution.

Arguably the best part about it is how it's affordable at $299.
