|ASUS Announces ZenFone 3 Ultra; 6.8-inch FHD Display, Octa-Core SD652 Chipset, 4GB RAM|
ASUS has been known to release its ZenFone line of smartphones with similar monikers, but don't let that cause the worry of your choices as you peruse those different offerings from the company. Now, ASUS has announced the ZenFone 3 Ultra to make things a bit easier on the side of naming convention.
Firstly, the ASUS ZenFone 3 Ultra aims to once again become a game changer by becoming an all-metal phablet without the visible antenna that creates gaps on the device sides. The company does away with this by integrating the antennas to make them invisible, therefore resulting into a gap-less device without the trade off in reception.

In terms of specifications, the Ultra features a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 652-chipset with a 1.8GHz octa-core CPU as well as 4GB of RAM, plus a desktop-grade Adreno 510 GPU to make for an impressive gaming performance. It comes with a hefty 4,600mAh battery, which you can also charge to 60% in just 45 minutes through its USB Type-C port.
