Because not everyone in the US is a customer of Verizon, ASUS went ahead and released an unlocked model of the ZenFone AR this morning. The unlocked unit can be found at Amazon for now and it starts at $599.
This version of the phone is a dual SIM model that features the same QHD display, 3-camera setup, 3300mAh battery, and Snapdragon 821 processor. Yes, it also works with Google’s Tango and Daydream. It is not a CDMA phone, though, so you’ll only get connectivity on GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile in the US.
At $599, you’ll get the ZenFone AR with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. If you need more RAM and storage, you can jump up to the $699 model that has 8GB and 128GB, respectively.
