ASUS never fails to disappoint when it comes to releasing multiple versions of their flagship devices. And a few days after announcing their line-up for 2016 at COMPUTEX, we are already hearing rumours of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 variant for the Zenfone 3 Deluxe.
For those who do not know, the Snapdragon 823 is actually a beefed up SD820 clocked at a higher speed. The original Deluxe features a Snapdragon 820 clocked at 2.15GHz and has a starting price of $499. But if you do need the extra processing power, you should be ready to shell out a few more bucks. The SD823 Deluxe is expected to be released in certain Asian markets which includes India and the Philippines in August.
While this is the first of the variants, I have a feeling it won’t be the last. We should keep our fingers crossed for other versions. Most likely one that features a Mediatek SoC.
