Get ready to experience your world in a whole new way with the ASUS ZenFone AR, the world's first smartphone that supports both augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies. For you, this means totally new ways to game, be entertained and interact with cutting-edge apps from the comfort of your couch. The best part? It’s coming to Verizon this summer.

Augment your reality

Virtual reality has become hugely popular in recent years thanks to increased adoption of mobile VR headsets, like Google Daydream, and rapid innovation in VR applications. Augmented reality takes the concept of VR and spins it around. Rather than put on a headset and be virtually transported to another world, you can use your ZenFone AR to bring the virtual world into your surroundings and interact with virtual pets, games, clothing and furniture as if they were in your actual living room.

With the ZenFone AR, you can use augmented reality to view clothing on a virtual model before you commit, see how furniture looks and fits in your man cave (or lady den) and experience the most immersive gaming available on a smartphone. To date, there are more than 100 Tango (Google’s core VR and AR technology) compatible apps on Google Play, and ASUS and Google are partnering with well-known brands to bring even more AR fun to your ZenFone AR.

Beyond VR

The ZenFone AR offers a virtual and augmented experience that is second to none. It is fully compatible with the Google Daydream View, allowing users to enjoy VR games and movies in full cinematic glory thanks to the smartphone’s 5.7” high-resolution display. The long-lasting 3,300 mAh battery ensures your VR and AR enjoyment won’t be interrupted, and the DTS HeadphoneX audio allows you to escape from reality with full cinematic sound.

The ASUS ZenFone AR is coming to Verizon this summer so you won’t have to wait long to try it out yourself. Sign up at for additional information, including pricing, availability and updates on the latest AR apps, and visit ASUS for more ZenFone AR features and specs.
