ASUS Thinnest 3x Optical Zoom Smartphone is ZenFone Zoom Available Feb. 1st

Asus announced it newest phone The ZenFone Zoom which features thinnest 3x Optical zoom in a Smartphone. This is a nice addition to ASUS flagship phones even if it is one year behind the schedule, I guess it was worth the wait.
ZenFone Zoom has nice hardware under the hood comparing to Apple Iphone 6S and Samsung Galaxy S6.

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

  • Intel Atom Z3590 Processor 2.5GHz

  • 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage w/ microSD card support up to 128GB

  • 5” FHD IPS (1920×1080) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4

  • 3,000 mAh battery (non-removable)

  • 13MP Camera with f/2.7-f/4.8, dual flash, laser auto-focus with 3x Optical Zoom and Optical Image Stabilization

  • Single SIM with 2G/3G/4G support

  • Dimensions: 158.9 x 78.84 x 5 ~ 11.95mm

  • 11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, BT 4.0, and NFC

Now the specs look really good and we are sure this is nice competition to Galaxy and Iphone, but unfortunately Samsung Galaxy S7 will be announced soon and we don’t know what it will bring to the table. The one thing that we know for sure the ZenFone Zoom will turn heads especially since its price tag is only $399. The down side why it will not become to popular is because it is going to be sold exclusively by B & H Photo. This exclusive deal will attract photographers rather than all users. I don’t think photographers will complain at all. Yet we all know that photographers stick with pro gear, so will they pick up the ZenFone Zoom? Time will tell.
