Asus ZenFone AR

The Asus ZenFone AR is the first phone to bundle both Google's Tango AR and support for Google's Daydream VR platform into a single device.

It's an achievement that the handset is so thin compared to the hefty Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, the first Tango-enabled phone.

But without a Tango demo ready when we first saw the ZenFone AR, it's impossible to determine how good it would be.

The ZenFone AR's light, slim body makes it nice to hold and use, but we'll have to see how well it can handle AR and VR phone, and inspire apps and experiences.
