They just announced the Snapdragon 821 model in August. They are rolling them out slowly by region (starting in Asia) -- just recently launched in the Philippines. Give it several weeks to hit the States. The Deluxe is on their products website, just not on the store they send American (or whatever territory it hasn't launched in yet) visitors to.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2016usa only i think well I live in the US and the Asus website does not even show the any of the 3 models; none! Only the 2 models
Does anyone know if there is a single country that this phone is been released at? I cannot see any country that got this phone. There are some who got 3/ultra/laser but none to my knowledge got deluxe yet. Will Asus ever release this phone anywhere? They have been talking about releasing it for past several months but nothing shows that they will actually do it!
Does any one know if the Snapdragon 821 variant will be available for Europe or not ? Also an approximation on when will it be available. I have seen that the normal Zenfone 3 is already available but not the deluxe version.
This would be a great phone if it ever came out. Been waiting since May and still not released? W.T.H. ASUS?! By the time this comes out there will be a lot of other new handsets to choose from.
Anwar, 29 Aug 2016Honestly, the machine has a massive performance, and well designed and shaped, the only thing ... moreOne Plus 3 is and Mi5 is much better and value for the money package.Zenfone delux is very costly smartphone.I don't think it will going to create any magic.Last year Zenfone 2 having lots of bugs and Asus didn't provide any major software update to eliminate existing bugs concentrating only to launch new devices.
techlover1, 29 Aug 2016Really compliments to Asus, generally speaking, the only downside is the lack of QHD display.... moreQHD display is shit, eats a lot of current, the best display is SuperAMOLED (+). There is no more improved screen as "S.A." in the depth of color in millions and in the "ppi".
Honestly, the machine has a massive performance, and well designed and shaped, the only thing is the QHD Display, but this explains the price, very good, very affordable.
Really compliments to Asus, generally speaking, the only downside is the lack of QHD display. But overall, well done & keep it up, Asus

Nick E., 28 Aug 2016Why does Asus website says Dual SIM Dual Standby?It is dual stand by and not dual active as the zenfone 2.
