The dual-camera party just welcomed another guest with the introduction of the ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom!


The Zenfone 3 Zoom is quite a powerful mid-ranger. It sports a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with 500nts of brightness, and like the Zenfone 3 5.5, the Zenfone 3 Zoom is also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor which should be more than enough to handle almost anything that you can throw at it, 4GB of RAM for heavy multi-tasking, 64GB of internal storage, and an extremely potent 5000mAh battery.

What separates the Zenfone 3 Zoom apart is an utmost focus in imaging capability, starting with the dual 12MP cameras at the back. It makes use of a new technology called SuperPixel, which combines a Superfast, Multi-Stage, Multi-Frame, Noise Reduction algorithm to achieve highest level of image quality. It also gives you more control over your shots, by letting you select between the 59mm/25mm lenses for zooming in and out.

An improved version of the TriTech Auto Focus System has been incorporated into the device. It makes use of a 2nd generation Laser Auto Focus, Subject Tracking Auto Focus, and Dual Pixel PDAF. The 13MP wide angle front-facing camera on the other hand, uses a Sony IMX214 sensor with f/2.0 aperture for fantastic looking selfies.
