New mobile – ASUS Zenfone AR and the new Galaxy To 2017
In terms of mobile, we have seen two presentations somewhat expected, the new Xiaomi Mi Mix white and the launch of the Huawei Mate 9 in the united States but the mobile has really called the attention has been the new ASUS ZenFone AR that has been launched alongside the new ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom.
