ASUS released a new Zenfone Zoom over a year after the last model. The new phone called Zenfone 3 Zoom ZE553KL was announced at this year’s CES with a new design that looks like that of the iPhone 7 Plus.
During the launch, ASUS didn’t reveal a lot of details about the new phone especially the price. Yesterday at the launch of the new Pegasus 3S in Taiwan, the pricing for the Zoom 3 was revealed.
The Zenfone 3 Zoom will be available in three storage variants: a 128GB version, a 64GB version and a 32GB variant. Sadly, only the price of the 128GB version was released. The Zenfone 3 Zoom 128GB will cost ¥3699 (~$534), so the 64GB and 32GB version will definitely cost less.
There is no arguing about the fact that the Zenfone 3 Zoom will be priced higher when it launches in North America and Europe.
The Zenfone 3 Zoom has a 5.5-inch FHD AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. There is 4GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 625 processor, Android Marshmallow, and a 5000mAh battery. The rear cameras are two 12MP sensors with f/1.7 and f/2.8 apertures, 2.3X optical zoom, laser autofocus, PDAF, and a dual LED flash. The front camera is a 13MP shooter with a f/2.0 aperture and can record 1080p videos. The phone will go on sale in February.
