Asus has announced the Zenfone 3 Zoom at the CES, Las Vegas, Nevada. It packs a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display wrapped under a full metal body. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC. The phone comes with dual camera setup on the rear and has a super pixel technology as well. Asus also claims that this phone is the world’s slimmest smartphone at 7.9mm with a high-capacity, 5000mAh battery
As far as cameras are concerned, there are two 12MP cameras, one with a f/1.7-aperture, 25mm wide-angle lens and a second with a 59mm lens. Users can instantly switch from the 25mm primary camera to the 59mm camera, giving them a 2.3X optical zoom that is perfect for portraits and capturing distant subjects. An improved TriTech+ autofocus system automatically chooses among three autofocus technologies — Dual Pixel PDAF, subject tracking autofocus, and second-generation laser focus — depending on the situation to achieve accurate focus in just 0.03 seconds, even when photographing moving subjects.
Asus has also introduced the SuperPixel camera technology that enables it to focus incredibly quickly and capture clear photos at night or in low-light environments. ASUS-exclusive hardware and software enhancements boost sensor light sensitivity by up to four times by intelligently adjusting ISO levels while shooting and applying noise reduction in post-shot processing.
The phone weighs at 170 grams. The company says ZenFone 3 Zoom can also double as a high-speed power bank for charging other devices.
