The line up of the Zenfone 3 isn’t complete yet without the Zenfone 3 Zoom. Unveiled just a few hours ago at the CES 2017 press conference by ASUS, the Zenfone 3 Zoom is among the two smartphones who took the center stage today. And this second-generation Zoom is way better than the old one in terms of design and aesthetics.
Launched by no-less ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih, the ZF3 (Zenfone 3) Zoom sports a 5.5-inch full HD with Super AMOLED display. And since this belongs to the ZF3 Family, just like the Zenfone 3 5.5-inch, the ZF3 Zoom is also powered by Snapdragon 625.
ASUS prepared a different configuration about the ROM and RAM. The highest config that is available is the 4G + 64G variant.
The focus of the ZF 3 Zoom is on the cameras but they included a super huge 5,000mAH battery so that you never run out of juice during your photography session.
Dual 12MP Shooter
At the back, you will see that similar-looking camera, just like what you have seen in the iPhone 7 Plus. The Dual 12MP Rear Cameras features f/1.7 aperture, 2.3x Optical Zoom, SuperPixel Technology, TriTech+ Auto Focus System.
While the front-facing camera has 13MP Front-Facing Camera with f/2.0 opening, SuperPixel Technology, and Wide Angle. It uses a Sony IMX214 sensor.
As for the SIM, the ZF3 Zoom employs the same dual-Hybrid SIM as the Zenfone 3 where the second slot can be used as microSD support. It can be stuffed with up to 128G additional storage.
Global pricing starts at USD380 and it will start shipping or at least arriving in stores between February and March 2017.
Rose Gold, Glacier Silver, and Navy Black are the colors available for the Zenfone 3 Zoom.
