Featuring a flat and thin metal body with ASUS's invisible antenna design, the ASUS ZenFone 3 Ultra is the newest and probably largest display phablet to reach the Malaysian market. Priced at RM2599, we see what else comes in the box asides from a 6.8-inch full HD display and better audio with dual 5-magnet speakers, DTS headphone X audio technology and 7.1-channel virtual sound this is the ASUS ZenFone with probably the best sound and movie display capabilities.

Coming in with an RM2599 price tag and 6.8-inch full HD display, the ASUS ZenFone 3 Ultra ZU680KL is just 0.2-inches short of a full 7-inch tablet. Still, ASUS have done a very good job of shrinking the bezels so that it looks like a very large phone instead of a tablet phone. Featuring a flat and thin all metal design, the ZenFone 3 Ultra has "invisible antennas" or no visible antenna bands but is the only ZenFone 3 to put the fingerprint sensor in the home button (also the only one with a physical home button for that matter).
