The Asus ZenFone AR – the world’s first phone that supports Google Daydream VR and Tango AR – is now available for purchase in the US through Amazon. The ZenFone AR went up for preorder on Verizon earlier this week for $648, but if you’re on a GSM network and don’t like being stuck in monthly payment plans, Amazon now has you covered.

Amazon has two versions of the ZenFone AR to choose from, including a 6GB RAM/64GB storage model and an 8GB RAM/128 storage variant. The former costs $599 (the same model that Verizon is selling for $49 more), whereas the latter will set you back $699.
Our first impressions of the ZenFone AR are quite positive following some initial hands-on time, and while we’ll have our final verdict coming soon in a full review, the $599 asking price is very reasonable considering just how much Asus crammed into the ZenFone AR’s 9mm thick body.
The front of the ZenFone AR is home to a 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED display, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor, has a 23MP camera on the back, and a 3,300 mAh battery for getting you through a full day of use. And, on top of the regular Android 7.0 Nougat experience, you’ve got Daydream and Tango features to play with as well.
