Imagine a Zenfone that can take crisp photos. Sharp and clear, but can even zoom 3x more with its optical lens on a 13-megapixel camera that features laser autofocus. That is only possible when Asus Philippines brings in the Asus Zenfone Zoom (ZX551ML) to test drive in Cebu this coming weekend.
Asus is proud to describe the upcoming smartphone to have a DSLR-level camera with a PC-grade performance. Will it deliver as promised? We will find out this weekend.

Like what the name talks about, Zenfone Zoom, is boasting of the following features:
- The lens (28-84mm focal length) has the world’s thinnest 3x optical zoom with an innovative 10-element HOYA lens arrangement for crisp detail.
- OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) 4 Stops OIS to unleash the true power of 3x optical-zoom
- Premium leather finish
- Boostmaster allows the Zenfone Zoom to charge its 3,000mAh battery from 0-60% in 39 minutes.
