The AR mode on the new Zenfone is made possible due to an advanced camera array on the rear of the phone. The main camera lens is Sony’s flagship IMX318 23 megapixel sensor. This is then flanked by 2 additional sensors. One of these tracks depth of field and the other has motion-tracking capabilities.
When all of these come together, the phone can display visually stunning Augmented Reality creations on screen. Tango is Google’s AR platform and there are many apps compatible apps available to showcase the technology.
