CES 2017: Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom with Dual Camera Launched
The device cuts down on Optical Zoom, but packs a 5,000 mAh battery
Asus has unveiled the ZenFone 3 Zoom, a successor to the ZenFone Zoom that retains the original’s optical zoom while refining a few other specs. The most interesting of these is a new 5,000 mAh battery squeezed into a case that’s actually three millimeters slimmer than the original’s.
Asus too is joining the dual-camera crowd, the ZenFone 3 Zoom packs a pair of 12MP sensors, one with a 25mm wide-angle lens and one with a 56mm lens to offer 2.3x optical zoom. The setup is pretty close to that of the iPhone 7 Plus, though Asus has an ƒ/1.7 aperture instead of the ƒ/1.8 found on the iPhone.
It is using two Sony IMX362 sensors with 1.4-micron pixels to ensure the device can hold its own in low light, and claims Dual Phase Detection Auto Focus will ensure every phono is nice and crisp.
The pricing and launch dates have not been disclosed yet and shall be done in the coming days.
