Asus, alongside the launch of the ZenFone Pegasus 3S in China, announced the pricing of the ZenFone 3 Zoom – at least, partially. To recall, the ZenFone 3 Zoom was launched at CES 2017 last week, but at the point the company had only detailed a February release date.
The Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom price is CNY 3,699 (roughly Rs. 36,400) – specifically, for the top-end 128GB inbuilt storage variant that also sports 4GB of RAM. Price details of cheaper SKUs were not revealed by the company. As we mentioned, the company made the price announcement at the China launch event of the Asus ZenFone Pegasus 3S IT168 reports.
The ZenFone 3 Zoom is called the “thinnest and lightest” smartphone featuring a 5000mAh battery by Asus. The smartphone is 7.9mm thick, and weighs 170 grams. It sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor.
The camera-focused smartphone bears a dual rear camera setup, with one 12-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX362 sensor and an f/1.7 aperture, and the other 12-megapixel rear camera featuring 2.3x optical zoom – allowing for a total 12x zoom. Like the Asus ZenFone AR, it features a TriTech+ autofocus system, dual-PDAF, 4-axis OIS, and 3-axis EIS. At the front, the ZenFone 3 Zoom packs a 13-megapixel camera with a Sony IMX214 sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, and a screen flash feature.
