It seems that that ASUS is planning to surprise us with a very unique smartphone in CES 2017, as what seems to be a press release from Qualcomm (accidentally perhaps) was posted containing information about the ASUS Zenfone AR.

Not much has been revealed in the document. But what is says is that the newest member of the Zenfone lineup sports a Snapdragon 821 processor, contrary to rumors of it being the first device to use the Snapdragon 835.

The Zenfone AR is a Tango-Enabled smartphone like the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. This means that it has the capability of producing a more immersive AR experience that rivals that of more powerful systems such as the HTC Vive.

Tango is a Google Technology which paves the way for better AR content by being able to sense movement in addition to location awareness. This allows for apps that can for example, track your movement across a room, or place virtual objects through the screen of your phone and make it look like they’re actually there.

The document has been taken down as of the time of writing. So we’ll have to see what other things this device brings to the table.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
