Pre-order for Smartphone For Snapdragon Insiders Goes Live

Earlier this month, Qualcomm made a surprise move with the launch of its very first smartphone. Well, it was not a big surprise for those who have been following rumors about a smartphone made in partnership with Asus. The device arrived in the form of a Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders. That sure is a mouthful and not very marketing-appealing smartphone name.

The ASUS-made device was announced with a promise that of reaching the market in August. Now, ahead of that release date, interested buyers are able to pre-order the smartphone. It’s not the cheapest smartphone out there, but the specifications are truly appealing.

The new Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders can be pre-order straight from the ASUS website in the United States. Apparently, ASUS will also take care of this part of the whole business. The smartphone shipments will start on August 27 which is basically a month away. Worth noting that pre-orders are not live yet in the United Kingdom, Europe, and India.
