ZenFone Zoom

Exactly a year after it’s unveiling at last year’s CES, Asus is bringing its camera focused smartphone – the Zenfone Zoom to India this month while it will be available in other markets, including the US early next month. The smartphone is priced at $399 and it will be available for purchase on both online and offline stores.

Asus ZenFone Zoom Camera Specifications

The highlight of the smartphone is its camera module that features 13-megapixel rear sensor with 3X optical zoom. Asus developed the main camera with the help of two Japanese giants – Panasonic supplied the 13-megapixel “SmartFSI” sensor, and HYOA engineered the 10-element lens. Fitting these elements together, the camera offers 3X optical zoom (12X zoom-in effect). The camera features optical image stabilization, laser auto-focus, and a dual-tone flash. It has aperture ranging from f/2.7 to f/4.8, so you’ll have to be little more patient when capturing shots. Most flagship smartphones’ cameras feature the faster f/2.0, which is missing in this flagship phone. On the front end, you get a 5-megapixel camera for selfies.

The ZenFone Zoom, though, features almost identical hardware of its predecessor ZenFone 2; it gets a slightly faster CPU, the single Micro-SIM slot and the newer Gorilla Glass 4 protection. You get an Intel Atom quad-core processor (Z3950, up to 2.5GHz), a PowerVR G6430 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, microSD expansion of up to 128GB, a 5.5-inch 1080p display and a 3,000mAh fixed battery.

It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with Asus ZenUI on top and features a 5.5-inch FHD display with a 1080p screen resolution. As for connectivity and sensors, the device equips GPRS/ EDGE, Bluetooth, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, Micro-USB, accelerometer, proximity, ambient light, gyroscopic, and digital compass. The handset is packed together by an aluminum body with a removable back leather cover and will be available in Glacier White and Meteorite Black Colors.
