The ZenFone can detect when one of these Deluxe View Flip Covers is attached, and the screen will adapt to make use of the clear window on the front, showing notifications and simple menu options.

The ZenFone 3 is even getting its own VR headset accessory, designed to hold the smartphone inside.

Unlike competing devices, Asus has ditched the cardboard and plastic in favour of a metal casing for its VR headset.

There are even genuine leather straps on the ZenFone VR headset so you can wear it in style (though walking down the street in one of these things is still a few years off).

Asus has also released a range of colourful backplates to attach to the new ZenFone.

Easily the standout of the set, this backplate is like a holographic, geometric oil slick of colours.

If you like a look that says "classic" but that also says "I'm not happy unless it's gold!" then this is the cover for you.

A bit more subtle but still beautiful, this inky grey-black cover looks like a galaxy of stars under the light.

The other stylish standout from Asus' ZenFone 3 backplate line-up, this number has a cool hammered metal vibe.

The ZenFlash S is a magnetic flash accessory that attaches to the back of your ZenFone, (but because the phone is made from aluminium alloy, you'll need a thin plastic cover with a metal plate). When it connects via bluetooth, the ZenFlash gives you a brighter flash -- perfect for dim Computex show floors.
