Asus ready for the big boys with Zenfone3 Zoom
Boasting of a high-capacity 5000mAh battery, a dual-camera system that delivers photographic perfection and a design that features the world’s slimmest and lightest 5.5-inch smartphone, the ZenFone 3 Zoom is ASUS’ primary ammunition in the very fierce and competitive world of smartphone one-upmanship.
Launched at the Lepanto Penthouse last Thursday, ASUS’ big guns officially presented the its new imaging-focused device — the Zenfone 3 Zoom, succeeding the original Zenfone Zoom in 2015 and now flaunts a dual rear camera setup.
The ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom combines the industry’s best smartphone-camera technologies and innovative dual-lens optics with its ƒ/1.7 SONY IMX362 sensor and 2.3x optical zoom camera, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S625 processor and ASUS SuperPixel™ Engine and its 5000mAh battery.
The upshot is unparalleled smartphone photography ready to capture every scenario, the moment you need it.
The ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom has a price tag of P23,995, about P3,000 cheaper than the previous P26,995 tag of the 2015 model.
Like a proud dad showing off his kid graduating with honors, ASUS Philippines Country Manager George Su led the simple launching ceremonies, where they flaunted the ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom’s features.
“This is the second of the series, but this time, we revolutionized the technology in this phone, with the dual-camera and the latest SONY sensor to give you the clearer pictures in a 5.5-inch full AMOLED screen,” said Su.
“This sleek phone is very powerful, with a strong battery pack. According to our tests, it has a standby time of over 42 days. You can take a video for more than 8 hours, with a very strong audio system,” added Su. “For buyers, we will also bundle this with the JBL Harman Portable Bluetooth Speakers, a limited ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom clear case, an ASUS ZenEar headset, and an ASUS tripod, all worth P4,500, free to the customer. These bundled items are included when you purchase the ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom, starting next week, at the price of P23,995 at stores nationwide. You cannot find any other offer from any other phone. This is a very good package, good offer, best value for money for anyone who likes taking photos, and loves a great battery.”
