The ZenFone 3, in reality, could have been called the ZenFone 3 Lite but nominally ASUS is indeed calling it the flagship.

The front cam is no underdog either with 8 megapixels and f/2.0 lens.

• Size: 152.59 x 77.38 x 7.69 mm

• Weight: 155g

• Display: 5.5" 1080p SuperIPS LCD

• Processor: Snapdragon 625

• RAM: 3GB/4GB RAM

• Internal Storage: 32GB/64GB

• microSD card slot

• Camera rear : 16MP ASUS PixelMaster 3.0 F2.0 with OIS, Laser autofocus Sony IMX298

The real flagship model is the ZenFone 3 Deluxe, at least if you put it side by side other early 2016 frontrunners.

• OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow ZenUI 3.0

• Size: 156.4 x 77.4 x 4.2 7.5 mm

• Weight: 170g

• Display: 5.7" 1080p Super AMOLED

• Processor: Snapdragon 820

• RAM: 6GB RAM

• Internal Storage: 64GB/128GB/256GB UFS 2.0

• microSD card slot dual sim or 1 sim microSD

• Camera rear : 23MP ASUS PixelMaster 3.0 F2.0 with OIS, Laser autofocus Sony IMX318

• Camera front : 8MP F2.0

• Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac 2.4/5GHz , Bluetooth v4.2 LE, NFC

• Battery: 3,000 mAh

• IP rating: -

• Others: Fingerprint, USB 2.0 Type-C, Quick Charge 3.0, 3.5mm headphone jack

The ZenFone 3 Ultra is a bit of an oddball.

It makes up for it somewhat in audio, which can output Hi-Res Audio, marketed as 4x better than CD quality audio, provided compatible headphones are connected.

• OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow ZenUI 3.0

• Size: 186.4 x 93.9 x 6.8 mm

• Weight: 233g

• Display: 6.8" 1080p IPS LCD

• Processor: Snapdragon 652

• RAM: 4GB RAM

• Internal Storage: 32GB/64GB/128GB

• microSD card slot dual sim or 1 sim microSD

• Camera rear : 23MP ASUS PixelMaster 3.0 F2.0 with OIS, Laser autofocus Sony IMX318

• Camera front : 8MP F2.0

• Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 2.4/5GHz , Bluetooth v4.2 LE, NFC

• Battery: 4,100 mAh

• IP rating: -

• Others: Fingerprint, USB 2.0 Type-C, Quick Charge 3.0, 3.5mm headphone jack

Despite the minor differences, the three are undoubtedly from the same family, sporting the same overall design and bearing some similar feature.
