For the first time, two of Asus' flagship devices from the Zenfone 3 series is available directly on US soil, thanks to Amazon. As such, the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe and the Asus Zenfone 3 Laser can be purchased unlocked. The Taiwanese phone manufacturer has strategically provided two options from different ends of the spectrum, as the Deluxe is considered a high-end device, while the Laser can be considered as a low-end phablet.

Though both Asus Zenfone 3 options are available on Amazon right now, shipping is estimated to start in two to five weeks. So there is some waiting time before interested individuals can actually get their hands on the devices.

Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe

As GSM Arena notes, there are two versions of the Zenfone 3 Deluxe - one which is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and the other by the Snapdragon 820 processor. It is unclear which variant Amazon is selling, because the information says "SD820," while the product description narrates "SD821."

Nevertheless, the Deluxe has the larger 5.7 inch 1080p Super AMOLED touchscreen. It also has a 23 megapixel rear camera and an 8 megapixel front camera. It runs smoothly and efficiently on 6GB of RAM, has 64GB of expandable storage and a 3000 mAh battery. Straight out of the box, it runs on Android 6.0.1.

The device is available for US$530.50.

It runs on just 2GB of RAM and has an internal storage space of 32GB, which is also expandable. The rear camera is has a lower resolution at 13 megapixels, but does come with a Laser AF technology and electronic image stabilization. It does, however, share the 3000 mAh battery with the Deluxe.
