Quick Look: Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra

If you’re looking for something a lot bigger than the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe, there’s the Zenfone 3 Ultra. Coming in with a massive 6.8 inch Full HD IPS display, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor humming at 1.8 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of expandable storage, and a 4600 mAh Quick Charge capable battery, it’s a solid device to consume multimedia on, whether that means watching movies for hours on end or playing graphics-intensive games.

It’s slim and light for its size, coming in at a mere 6.8 mm thick and 233 g heavy, which should make two-handed use easier and less straining. The Zenfone 3 Ultra is set to hit stores with a USD 479 tag—a bit cheaper than the flagship Zenfone 3 Deluxe as the Ultra struts a nerfed processor, display, RAM, and memory configuration, but for the most part retains its brother’s high-end innards.
