Asus ZenFone Zoom Set to Launch This Month in India

Asus is set to launch the ZenFone Zoom smartphone in India this month. The company in a statement to the press said it will launch its "most advanced photography-focused smartphone" in January, and presented key features such as 3x optical zoom, a 13-megapixel camera, laser autofocus, a 10-element lens with OIS, a quad-core processor, and 4GB of RAM. All these features are found on the ZenFone Zoom, a smartphone it first unveiled at CES 2015 but that has yet to see wide availability.

Running Android 5.0 Lollipop with the Asus ZenUI on top, the ZenFone Zoom sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.7 to f/4.8-aperture, 10-element lenses with 3X optical zoom, OIS (optical image stabilisation), laser auto-focus and dual-color Real Tone flash. The company touts that with a thickness of just 11.95mm, the ZenFone Zoom is the "world's thinnest 3X optical smartphone offering up to 12X zoom-in effect." It also packs a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Much like other ZenFone 2 series smartphones, the ZenFone Zoom also packs 4GB of RAM. It is powered by a quad-core 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor.

The ZenFone Zoom includes 64GB inbuilt storage, which can be expanded via microSD card (up to 128GB). It features 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display and sports Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Connectivity options include GPRS/ EDGE, Bluetooth, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, and Micro-USB. The Asus Taiwan listing confirms that the ZenFone Zoom supports Indian 4G LTE bands as well.

The listing further says that the smartphone supports single-SIM (Micro-SIM); though we can expect the company to reveal a dual-SIM variant in India. The handset packs 3000mAh battery. It includes sensors such as accelerometer, proximity, ambient-light, gyroscopic, and digital compass. The Zenfone Zoom measures 158.9x78.8x11.95mm and weighs 185 grams. It will be available in Glacier White and Meteorite Black colours.
