Tango is Google’s first step into augmented reality which uses highly sensitive cameras and sensors to scan its surroundings. The latest Tango-enabled device is the Asus ZenFone AR which is meant to get the AR platform into more consumer hands. Unfortunately, our review of the handset finds that it likely has more flaws than anything else for most people, especially with a $600+ price tag.

Does the ZenFone AR offer enough to get you to use Tango or are you more interested in using other mobile AR technologies?

When it comes to Google’s Tango platform for augmented reality (formerly known as Project Tango), there aren’t a whole lot of options. In fact, up until now, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro was the only device that supported Tango, but ASUS announced its own entry into the AR front with the ZenFone AR earlier this year at CES 2017.

Skip forward half a year, and the ZenFone AR is finally available to the masses, and even has backing from a major US carrier. Combined with its support for Google’s Daydream VR platform, the ZenFone AR could potentially be the darling phone for altered perception enthusiasts, but a proof of concept device may not be the best option for most people.

Asus ‘will update’ the Zenfone 3 and 4 Series to Android O, eventually

Asus releases a lot of phones every year, but not many of them actually see long-term support in terms of major OS upgrades. After unveiling 6 more phones earlier today, the company confirmed that it has plans to push Android O to not only the new ZenFone 4 Series, but also the entire ZenFone 3 Series.

Similar to another company that I’ve been rather critical of recently, Asus has a tendency to release a lot of different phones throughout the year. So far in 2017 we’ve already seen the likes of the ZenFone AR and ZenFone 3 Zoom, and today the company announced six new entires for its ZenFone 4 lineup.

Earlier today, Asus quietly launched the ZenFone 4 Selfie in France – a new mid-ranger from the company that offers an impressive 20MP + 8MP dual front-facing camera setup. Asus is expected to release another entry into its Zen/fone line later this month with the Asus ZenFone 4, and a new report supposedly reveals many of the phone’s specifications and its design.
