Zenfone AR Launched after the Hackathon Event of ASUS

ads here too




Late this June, one of the leading brands in the smartphone industry unveils another interesting features that will enhance our use of mobile phones. ASUS Philippines finally launched its latest smartphone – the much-awaited and game-changing Zenfone AR.

Symbolizing a new dawn for mobile and smartphone technology, the Zenfone AR is actually the world’s first 5.7-inch smartphone that is Google Tango-enabled and Daydream-ready, allowing users to experience both mobile virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies.



Tango is a set of sensors and computer-vision software by Google that enables smartphone augmented reality. Tango technologies add three key capabilities — Tango motion tracking, Tango depth perception, and Tango area learning — to enable smartphone augmented reality to create unique AR user experiences, such as AR gaming, AR utilities, and indoor navigation[[1] Coming soon to select locations][1].

Daydream is Google's platform for high-quality, mobile virtual reality and supports Daydream VR apps. Paired with the Daydream View headset and controller, ZenFone AR allows users explore new worlds, kick back in their personal VR cinema, and play games that put them at the center of action. ZenFone AR was developed in close cooperation with Google to deliver the best AR and VR experiences.

Furthermore, ZenFone AR is the thinnest and lightest Tango-enabled device. This breakthrough in size and weight is made possible by the innovative ASUS TriCam™ system — a  three-camera system consisting of a 23MP PixelMaster 3.0 main camera, a motion-tracking camera, and a depth-sensing camera that meet Tango specifications. Unlike three-camera systems in other devices, the design of the ASUS TriCam system clusters its array of cameras to reduce their footprint within the phone, enabling the entire phone to be thinner and lighter.






Making this smartphone a powerhouse like no other, the ZenFone AR features a powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 821 processor that is optimized for Tango, and is the world's first smartphone with 8GB of RAM. The ZenFone AR also includes 128 GB of fast UFS 2.0 storage, enabling users to store a large library of apps, games, videos, photos, and music, and open them quickly. ZenFone AR's powerful performance and innovative camera work in conjunction with Tango technology to enable smooth and compelling smartphone AR experiences. A beautiful, 5.7-inch WQHD Super AMOLED display and a new five-magnet speaker makes Daydream’s virtual reality apps, games, and videos more immersive and entertaining. Android™ 7.0 ‘Nougat’ lets users get the most out of ZenFone AR with new multitasking features and other enhancements that deliver a great mobile experience.

The Powerful ASUS Zenfone AR TriCam system for Tango experiences

ZenFone AR uses an ASUS TriCam system consisting of three rear cameras — a motion-tracking camera, depth-sensing camera, and high-resolution 23MP PixelMaster 3.0 camera — which provide input to Tango, enabling smartphone augmented reality experiences for users. The motion-tracking camera lets ZenFone AR keep track of its location as it moves through three-dimensional space. The depth-sensing camera lets ZenFone AR determine its distance from objects by projecting an infrared (IR) laser and measuring the amount of time it takes for IR light to bounce off objects and return to the phone. The 23 MP PixelMaster 3.0 camera features a Sony IMX 318 image sensor to vividly capture the environment as a backdrop for AR experiences.

AR is a rapidly growing area of mobile technology, and one that consumers are extremely excited about. ASUS and Google have partnered with well-known industry-leading companies, such as Megaworld (Property and Real Estate), DevCon (IT), as well as Kooapps and GDAP (Gaming), in order for individuals from all walks of life to experience smartphone AR. Tango also provides developers with the ability to deliver consistent AR experiences across devices and helps users easily discover a wide range of new apps, such as exciting games, home decor utilities, and apps that provide new ways to explore. To date, the ecosystem has growing quickly and there are plenty of apps on Google Play[[2] Tango apps on Google Play: http://get.google.com/tango/apps/][2] that are Tango enabled.


Experience Daydream by Google Through Zenfone AR

The expansive 5.7-inch display of ZenFone AR makes it ideal for VR apps and games when used with Daydream View, immersing users in incredible VR worlds that appear detailed and lifelike in WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. Super AMOLED technology enables deep blacks and high contrast, further enhancing image quality and 3D effects.

With ZenFone AR and Daydream View, users can explore new and fictional worlds with apps like Street View and Fantastic Beasts, kick back in a personal VR cinema with YouTube, Netflix, Hulu and HBO, and get in the game with Gunjack 2, LEGO® BrickHeadz, Need for Speed, and more.

However, no word has been said about Daydream View’s local release as of yet.

Impressive audio, inside and out

In addition to video, high-quality audio is an important component of immersive AR and VR experiences. To fulfill this demand, ZenFone AR comes with ASUS SonicMaster 3.0 technology. A five-magnet speaker driven by a powerful NXP smart amplifier delivers clear, expansive sound that can be played at high volumes without distortion. ZenFone AR can also output certified High-Resolution Audio (HRA) to compatible devices at 24-bit/192kHz — or 4X CD-quality. DTS Headphone:X™ provides virtual 7.1-channel surround sound for immersive entertainment experiences.

Cutting-edge hardware for unrivaled AR and VR performance

ZenFone AR is designed with the latest, top-of-the-line components to provide high-quality AR and VR experiences. This cutting-edge hardware also makes ZenFone AR one of the most powerful smartphones available. ZenFone AR features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor that has been specially optimized for AR operations. ASUS worked closely with Qualcomm Technologies and Google engineers to help develop methods for efficiently distributing computer-vision workloads, as well as rapidly processing movement and positioning instructions with Tango to deliver smooth, immersive, and compelling AR experiences. It also features the desktop-class Qualcomm Adreno 530 graphics-processing unit (GPU) to deliver supercharged graphics performance and handle the graphical demands of Tango and Daydream applications with ease.

Thin and light metallic design

ZenFone AR packages its advanced technology in a beautifully minimalist, light, and compact design. A precision-milled metal frame and slim, 4.6 mm edge provides a luxurious look that is further enhanced by stainless-steel accents around the camera. These accents also help protect the camera lens from scratches. ZenFone AR has an ergonomic curved shape with a 4.6 mm edge and a tactile, leather-patterned rear surface that feels great in the hand.



ASUS PixelMaster 3.0 — Capture reality, fast and steady

ZenFone AR also features an advanced camera that takes beautiful, high-resolution photos and videos in almost any lighting condition. It has an ASUS PixelMaster 3.0 camera that uses the world's highest resolution camera sensor (Sony IMX318) and the ASUS TriTech autofocus system. Other key camera features include:

●Four-axis optical image stabilization (OIS) photo and three-axis electronic image stabilization (EIS) video stabilization — Enables sharp photos and shake-free videos.
●0.03-second ASUS TriTech™ System — exclusive TriTech autofocus technology is the ultimate integration of phase-detection autofocus, laser autofocus and subject-tracking autofocus, the result is perfectly focus and sharp image every time – day on night, indoor or out.
●Super Resolution mode — Creates ultra-high resolution, 92MP photos by capturing and combining four native 23MP photos to create a single image with exceptional clarity, greater detail, and less noise.
●RAW file support — ZenFone AR offers photographers the freedom to shoot and store compositions in RAW format. RAW files save the full data of the photo captured by the camera’s sensor and are ideal for enhancement with editing software, where users are able to uncover fine details in areas of shadow, or recover overexposed areas in the highlights, with much lower loss of image quality when compared to editing JPEG image files.
●High-resolution 4K UHD video recording — Captures ultra-detailed and sharp videos.
●Professional manual creative controls — Gives keen photographers control over advanced camera settings, like white balance, exposure value (EV), ISO sensitivity, shutter speed, and focus. This makes ZenFone AR a powerful tool for learning the fundamental skills of photography and allows users to shoot scenes with many different creative interpretations.

Acer Philippines and G-Shock's #TimeForUs Campaign, Bridging the Gap Between Two Generations

ads here too

 One of the leading tech and innovations company launched their latest campaign #TimeForUs, a movement that aims to narrow the division between Gen Xers and millennials. Acer Philippines moves to bridge the gap between two generations and bring them closer through technology.

According to Sales and Marketing Director of Acer Philippines, Sue Ong-Lim, "At Acer, we believe that it's time to focus on bridging the generation divide," "It's imperative that we see that, amidst the differences between Gen Xers and millennials, they are also a lot alike," she added.

To represent the time difference, the campaign forge a partnership between Acer Philippines and G-Shock, a franchise owned by Casio. G-Shock's appeal has spanned both of the two generations, Gen X and millennial and continues to be popular.


Acer Philippines also called on rock musician BastiArtadi and spoken word artist Juan Miguel Severo, both artistic icons of their craft and time, to collaborate and develop “Time For Us” a musical-and-spoken word piece to drive the message of the campaign. BastiArtadi, vocalist of the award-winning rock band Wolfgang, rose to fame in the mid- to late-90s, making him a legend among those from Gen X.

Meanwhile, Juan Miguel Severo popularized the art of spoken word poetry when “Ito Na AngHuling Tula Na IsusulatKo Para Sa’yo”, his original piece, made rounds on social media, making it viral among the millennials. The piece cemented the admiration of spoken word poetry as an art form, and since then, Juan Miguel Severo has become the face of the craft.

“G-Shock, BastiArtadi, and Juan Miguel Severo are with us in aspiring to bring the Gen X and millennial generation together,” says Ray Gozon, Senior Marketing Manager of Acer Philippines. “With their help, we are optimistic that we will ultimately be able to succeed.”


The #TimeForUs Launch Event was led by Acer Philippines and it was held at Yes Please. This modern bar at Bonifacio Global City was transformed into a nostalgic wonderland reminiscent of the 80s and 90s, but peppered with today’s technology, symbolic of the event’s cause – old school arcades paired with Acer’s latest laptops, music sets that shifted from old school beats to modern pop, and an overall aesthetic that brought out the best from both eras.

As Acer Philippines formally announced its partnership with G-Shock, the powerhouse brands launched the #TimeForUs promo, where every purchase of qualifying Acer laptops entitles its buyers to a G-Shock watch, which they may claim in any of Acer’s service centers in Manila, Cebu, and Davao.

The event also saw the debut of“Time For Us” - the musical-and-spoken word piece created by BastiArtadi and Juan Miguel Severo. BastiArtadipumped up the crowd with his roaring voice as Juan Miguel Severo, representative of the millennials, spewed compelling words; together, they delivered a powerful performance which was symbolic of two generations uniting.

“At the end of the campaign, we want to have brought a better understanding of and between Gen Xers and millennials,” shares Ray Gozon, Senior Marketing Manager of Acer Philippines. “We want these two generations to see the merits of working together.”

Converge ICT Solutions, Inc., launched their FiberX, iBIZ, Converge Enterprise and FiberXtreme. These solutions will definitely upscale today's internet experience.

The company also announced further expansion plans and continued strengthening of its fiber optic network. At present, Converge already laid out more than 6,000 kilometers of its fiber optic reach and is still growing. It is already servicing clients from as far north as Baguio and further down south to Batangas.

Here in Metro Manila, Converge’s pure fiber optic offering has already covered cities such as Valenzuela and Las PiƱas and Muntinlupa cities down south of the metropolis. It plans to further expand its reach by putting up networks in Nasugbu, Batangas and even far north such as San Fernando in La Union.

Eventually, fiber broadband offerings will soon be enjoyed nationwide, according to Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Anthony Uy.

The perennial problem of Filipinos in dealing with slow Internet connection will now be a thing of the past, thanks to Converge ICT Solutions, Inc.’s offerings that bring fast, affordable, reliable, and “best-of-breed” pure fiber-optic connectivity to power the Internet usage of home, micro, small-, medium- and large-scale enterprise users.
