Asus is working with Google to launch a phone that does both AR and VR. The device is being made  with Qualcomm’s chips.

The Asus Zenfone AR is a phone that combines Google’s Daydream View VR platform and its Tango depth-sensing cameras.

The Zenfone AR features a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor than the Phab 2 Pro. Its camera is also larger.

Google’s prior devices that work with its new Daydream VR platform include the Pixel, Pixel XL and the Motorola Z. On the other hand, the only Tango-equipped phone was the Phab 2 Pro.

But Zenfone AR could bridge the gap between augmented and virtual reality.

Combining VR and a movement-sensing, location-aware camera like Tango may lead to VR apps and games tracking movement across a room, allowing virtual reality experiences similar to those on advanced systems such as HTC Vive.
