Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra (ZU680KL) Features

At the same event where we saw the Zenfone 3 and the Zenfone 3 Deluxe, the third product ASUS launched alongside them is the Zenfone 3 Ultra. This phone is similar to the previous two in many ways except for one, it’s got a massive 6.8 inch screen that makes it almost as big as a small-sized 7-inch tablet. This being a seemingly mid-range device, the resolution remains at 1920 x 1080 pixels, which given the vast size of the screen, yields a just-about acceptable 324PPI pixel density. It may be pretty thin at 6.8mm, but weighs over 200 grams. It’s wrapped in an all-metal body with volume rockers placed at the back of the device, much like the LG G4. The screen is covered by Gorilla Glass 4. It also is touted as the first smartphone to come with a dedicated display processor, that is supposed to help deliver better quality output from the screen.

Inside the Zenfone 3 Ultra is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core chip with four cores running at 1.8GHz, while the other four at 1.4GHz. It’s available in 3 and 4GB RAM variants and comes with either 32, 64 or 128GB of internal storage.

The rear camera is the same as the Zenfone 3 Deluxe, clicking pictures at 23 megapixel resolution and features like Optical Image Stabilization and laser autofocus. Fortunately, the battery on the Ultra is bigger than its two cousins, at 4100mAh. Also, with the bundled 18W charger, the USB Type C compatible charger should power up half of the battery in less than an hour. This Dual SIM handset takes in either two SIM cards or one SIM card and one microSD card.

There aren’t many phones with that big a screen, but if you fancy them, then you could take a look the Lenovo Phab Plus.
