Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom Price Was Unveiled
The Taiwanese tech manufacturer managed to get the whole tech community riled last month up when it announced its upcoming ZenFone AR and ZenFone 3 Zoom. The two smartphones have been finally made available. Sadly, only Taiwanese residents are able to acquire these devices as of now. On the bright side, Asus announced that both ZenFone AR and ZenFone 3 Zoom will be seeing a worldwide launch during the following months.
Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom: Price
Even though we aren’t able to get our hands on ZenFone 3 Zoom right now, at least we know what to expect. The smartphone has been priced at the hefty sum of $489. What’s interesting is that its price is going to be lowered when it arrives in North America. In fact, Asus officially announced that ZenFone 3 Zoom will be arriving in the US during the first quarter of 2017 and it will be priced at $399. This is quite affordable when taking in consideration the amount of specs it brings.
Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom: Specs
As its name implies, the smartphone’s strongest point is the camera that it features. Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom will ship with a 12MP main camera that has 2.3X optical zoom, 4K video recording capabilities and dual-pixel autofocus. This camera has been optimized to the point that it takes some of the best photos ever. Asus proved once again that rear cameras don’t necessarily need to be equipped with huge amounts of megapixels in order to take high quality photos.
Now let’s take a look under the device’s hood and see what we can find. At a first glance we can see that ZenFone 3 Zoom is fueled by a Qualcomm octa-core Snapdragon 625 chipset. The processor is coupled with 4GB of RAM. Additionally, the device ships with a 5.5 inch AMOLED display that has a pixel resolution of 1080p. Last but not least, another key selling point of ZenFone 3 Zoom is that it’s equipped with a rather large 5,000 mAh battery.
On another note, the smartphone comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow straight out of the box. While this might not be the greatest operating system, we can assure readers that it’s going to be upgraded along the way. Until then, Android 6.0 Marshmallow should suffice anyways.
