Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe to opt for Snapdragon 823 SoC in India

The Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe may land in India equipped with a Snapdragon 823 processor instead of the standard variant’s Snapdragon 820 SoC. The news of this exciting development comes courtesy a fresh rumor which states that this special version will be hitting other markets like the Philippines as well.

To recap, the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe made its international debut only a few days ago alongside the ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 3 Ultra. The brand didn’t disclose too many availability details at the time, but did clarify that the handset would arrive sometime in the third quarter of the year.

The new report now suggests that the ZenFone 3 Deluxe may be arriving in India sooner than expected in August this year. If the rumor turns out to be accurate, locals will be able to buy a Snapdragon 823-enhanced version of the phone instead of the original’s 820 one.
