Mark your calendar! ASUS Philippines will finally launch the ZenFone 3 series on August 14.

You know what the best part is? You have a chance to win bragging rights join the event and get your hands on the ZenFone 3, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe, and the ZenFone 3 Ultra ahead of everyone else. Just head over to zenvolution.ph, and participate in one of the contests that ASUS Philippines will announce at the official event microsite.

The phones — first revealed at Computex 2016 in Taiwan on May 30 — are set to go head-to-head with the kind of devices that manufacturers like Xiaomi are making: high-specced yet easy on the budget.

Among the three, the ASUS ZenFone 3 is the most wallet-friendly at $249 (about P11,800), and the ZenFone 3 Deluxe, the highest-priced variant at $499 (roughly P24,000).

The company has not revealed their local prices, but if we are to base our guess on ASUS’ ZenFone pricing history in the Philippines, the smartphones’ SRPs in the country should still be close to their dollar value.

The ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe will now come with Snapdragon 821, the first smartphone to launch with Qualcomm’s newest, fastest, most high-end processor.

How do they differ from each other? Check out this spec and price comparison prepared by IBTimes UK. Please take note that the ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe has been upgraded. It will now come with Snapdragon 821, the first smartphone to launch with Qualcomm’s newest, fastest, most high-end processor.
