No one would question that ZTE has more than enough money to develop a new device at-will, but the company is taking a different approach in bringing the unique Hawkeye to consumers. It’s a crowdsourced theme that started with the world telling ZTE what crazy features are wanted in a phone. Now it’s time for the world to put its money where its mouth is.

A Kickstarter campaign launched by ZTE is aiming to raise $500,000 for the Hawkeye to be released later this year.

Two of Google’s more cutting edge technologies find themselves loaded up on a device from an unlikely source. ASUS announced the ZenFone AR today, the first smartphone that comes with both Tango and Daydream technology on-board. We have seen other devices hit the market with one of these platforms from Google, but this is the first device that includes both of them.

Daydream may be more familiar as it is the technology used for virtual reality in the new Google ecosystem.
