We just let you guys know the Asus ZenFone AR was available for preorder from Verizon for $648, and now we’re learning (via The Verge) the company has made the device available unlocked in the US for just $599. This will get you 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. An option including 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will cost $699.

Overall, both of these price points are really quite low for what you get. For reference, you’re getting a camera array that will support Google Tango AR, a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, High-Res Audio and DTS virtual surround sound support, Android Nougat, a 3300mAh battery, and a Snapdragon 821 processor. The phone’s even compatible with Google’s Daydream VR platform so you can strap the device into a Daydream View headset and enjoy virtual reality content. Overall, it should be a good value for the money you pay if you decide to pick one up.

We’ll update this article with a list of retailers when it becomes available.


Update: It looks like Amazon is the only one selling the ZenFone AR at this point. It’s $599 if you want it.
