checked the asus russia website
13990 rubles = $300 AUD
just hope the price bracket will be reasonable & not the hybrid(handicap) one
Last time I waited for the Zenfone 3 Zoom there was a 4 month delay. Never again
I'm more interested to see what else asus offers up in the way of flagship models , most of the other phone makers seem to be going with the G6 and S8 tall and narrow trend (except Sony .......gee what a surprise ) .
I could be wrong , but i suspect a company that
bought out an attractive old style phone with all the bells and whistles might do well ?
Hoping Asus improves on their Zenfone 3 ultra successor and price it competitively like the Mi Max 2 so it can at least have a fighting chance. Competition is good so if it remains overpriced like the previous Zenfone 3 ultra, it may be the last supersized phablet Asus is ever going to release. Also hoping Asus improves on micro usb slot quality and battery longevity. Most Asus phones become unusable because of easily loosened/damaged micro usb slot preventing charging after one to two years of use. The battery also seems to always die faster than in most other phones. Also the screen can have phantom touches.
Finally... Zenfone 4!! Oh... Wait... That is one of the first generation of Zenfone..... (o.O)a
On the side note, it seems no one bitching about Snapdragon 430 it's equipped with.
Well, from a seller (Asus) perspective, that definitely might not go so well, as sales-wise. But for some tech enthusiasts like me, it might be really interesting/ excited to see a lot of flagships (& not) battling all together, etc. But let's see.
Hope this line will be better in quality comparing 3 series. And not that overpriced.
Pit it against the iphone and the note 8. lol. jokes. Asus will have to one up Oneplus.
