Winner of the Computex 2016 Best Choice Golden Award, the ASUS ZenFone 3 Ultra is a smartphone for people who love watching movies and videos. Up front is a large 6.8-inch IPS display that packs a full HD resolution with a 95% NTSC color gamut. Its actually the first ZenFone to feature ASUS’ Tru2Life+ Video technology — an advance image processing algorithm that boosts contrast and clarity.
Keeping to its multimedia focus, the ZenFone 3 Ultra is equipped with two five-magnet stereo speakers and a NXP smart amplifier for clearer and more defined sound quality. It is the world’s first smartphone to use a virtual 7.1-channel surround sound with DTS Headphone:X. The audio port supports Hi-Res Audio (HRA) output, providing four times better sound quality if used with certified headphones.
