For those who are not aware, Tango is a technology platform developed and authored by Google that uses computer vision to enable mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to detect their position relative to the world around them without using Global Positioning System, while Daydream is Google's take on the high-quality mobile VR experience. ASUS says that the 821 chipset has been well optimised for the Zenfone AR, especially for all the heavy AR and VR hardware additions that its rivals don't have to bear. It also supports 4-axis OIS (optical image stabilisation), 3-axis EIS (electronic image stabilisation) for video recording and can also capture 4K video. There is an 8-megapixel shooter up front for selfies and video chats.

ZenFone AR that runs on Android 7.0 Nougat is paired with the Google Daydream View VR headset and controller. The Asus Zenfone AR is priced at Rs.49,999 in India and will be available via Flipkart starting from today 4:00 PM. With a set of sensors and cameras, the ZenFone AR lets users navigate the world of augmented reality with Tango AR apps. It is further backed by a 3,300mAh battery and supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology that is claimed to charge 60 per cent of the phone in just 39 minutes.

The company is also touting the five-magnet speaker, NXP amplifier, Hi-Res Audio support, DTS HD Premium sound, DTS Headphone:X 7.1 channel virtual surround sound, and dual-microphone active noise cancellation for better audio quality.
