In a significant shift from its previous flagship models, Asus recently introduced the Zenfone 11 Ultra, marking a new direction for its mainstream Zenfone line. The latest addition boasts top-tier cameras, including a flagship chipset and cutting-edge AI features. However, what’s catching attention is its departure from the compact design ethos of its predecessors. In this article, let’s dive into discussing the latest Asus Zenfone 11 Ultra, including its price in Nepal, specifications, and more.

Asus Zenfone 11 Ultra Overview

What’s changed? 

Unlike its predecessors, the Zenfone 11 Ultra takes on a significantly larger form factor, with dimensions akin to the ROG Phone 8 Pro. This alteration in size suggests a pivot towards a more mainstream audience, contrasting with the gaming-centric design of the ROG Phone 8 Pro.

Comparing the Zenfone 11 Ultra with the ROG Phone 8 Pro reveals a shift from a standard compact and a very cute comfort design to a sports package upgrade. While the former offers a premium experience in a sleek design, the latter caters specifically to gamers with features like air triggers and accent lighting.

Display and Design

The device has a glossy matte finish and has a build of aluminum frames and glass on the back. This latest flagship shares similarities with the ROG phones in the design departments.

Reactions on the Internet

Asus, known for its enthusiast phones, took a different route with the Zenfone 11 Ultra, opting for a larger form factor.
