ASUS is one of the hottest and newest names in the smartphone industry and with no pun intended, it makes one heck of a competitor as far as the low, mid and high-end smartphones are concerned.
ASUS ZenFone Zoom made its debut during last year’s CES and exactly a year later, the phone is now making its way into the U.S. The camera-focused smartphone will be available as from early February, and it will exchange hands at about $399.
Even though the company has promised to unveil more details about the specifications of this phone as from January 20th, however, we have also gathered for you some of the best features and specifications you can expect to see on the new ASUS ZenFone Zoom smartphone when it is released.
Expected spec sheet of the ZenFone Zoom
The Taiwanese company has been marketing the new ASUS ZenFone Zoom based on its extra-amazing camera. However, there is just more to this phone especially considering the price it comes for.
The Zoom will come with a screen size of 5.5 inches with support for 1080p display. The screen is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and deep inside the phone there is a quad-core processor from Intel, a RAM of 4GB as well as a massive battery unit of 3,000mAh.
There is even better news when it comes to storage as users have only two options – a 64GB model and a 128GB model. Both models have support for microSD card expansion of up to 128GB, so why pick the latter model?
When ASUS unveiled the ZenFone 2, it was almost on the same level as many devices that were unveiled in 2015. However, it had its share of the spoils, especially on the company’s bloatware and a rather substandard battery unit. To make matters worse, the camera was nothing admirable.
Talking of cameras, the ZenFone Zoom has a 13MP snapper on the rear that features a Panasonic sensor as well as three times optical zoom. It has a 10-element lens that has been developed by Hoya and according to ASUS; this snapper is a lot more different from what was offered on the ZenFone 2.
Given that Hoya is largely associated with lens filters rather than the lens itself, it will be interesting to see how this phone’s photography performance when compared with the likes of Nexus 6P or even Motorola’s Moto X Pure Edition.
