ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom Now Available to Buy with 5000mAh Battery

Way, way back in January of this year, when the Consumer Electronics Show was in full swing, ASUS officially debuted the ZenFone 3 Zoom.

Now, several months later, that handset, which packs a noteworthy camera on the back and a huge battery inside, is now available to buy. The ZenFone 3 Zoom features a dual-camera setup on the back, with a pair of 12-megapixel shooters. One of them is outfitted with a f/1.7 aperture, and a 25mm wide-angle lens. The other boasts a 59mm option, with a 2.3x optical zoom. The camera system also includes phase detection autofocus, subject tracking autofocus, and an improved laser focus system. The camera system can also “intelligently adjust ISO levels” due to ASUS’ own “SuperPixel” technology.

As far as the other specs go, the ZenFone 3 Zoom boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, and there is a 5000mAh battery tucked inside as well. Both of those features combined means, according to ASUS, that the device can last 42 days on a single charge in standby mode, with the 4G radios activated. There’s 3GB of RAM on board with 32GB of built-in storage, and a microSD card reader to expand that storage if need be. It’s running Android 6.0 out of the box.

The ZenFone 3 Zoom is priced at $329, which seems like a pretty strong price tag for a phone of this sort. It’s also GSM unlocked. You can buy one from Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo Video, or ASUS.
