Virtual reality is the most enjoyable when you have a big, high-resolution display to view it with, and that's exactly the kind of screen we're dealing with here on the Asus ZenFone AR. The size of the screen measures in at 5.7-inches, and Asus decided to go with a Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. This combination creates for a pixel density of 515-pixels-per-inch, and in-person, the display here looks fantastic. The combination of Quad HD and Super AMOLED is one of the best duos you can get in a smartphone display, and that's no exception with the ZenFone AR. Colors are extremely rich and saturated, viewing angles are great, and everything seems to just pop our of the screen and punch you in the face.

In addition to the ZenFone AR, Also also unveiled the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom camera smartphone with 5000mAh battery at the event. The phone has dual rear cameras and offers 2.3x optical zoom.
