Asus Zenfone 3 ZOOM - The New Smartphone Camera King

Greetings Readers,

Smartphone photography is a real thing these days, and I love how you don't have to carry a camera with you to get a great shot. I know most of you look towards the camera and battery life as a main selling point for their new devices.

Dual-Camera phones have been the "talk of the town"for some time after Huawei killed it with the P9, and now with the Mate 9. Even Apple's Iphone 7S is packing one and now it seems ASUS is gunning for the best camera phone EVER, meet the ZENFONE 3 ZOOM

In order to achieve that goal, ASUS is using the latest and best Sony Exmor sensor that you can get for a smartphone - IMX362 with f/1.7 aperture and 1.40µm pixels, and it has TWO of them!

For those of you who follow ASUS, the Zenfone 3 had the most criminally underrated camera of last year

and you can check out my review of it here:

Asus produced one of the best low-light cameras, while still using IMX298 and f/2.0 aperture!
What does that mean for the Zenfone 3 Zoom?
First of all the larger aperture lets the sensor get more light, the difference from f/2.0 to f/1.7 might look little, but believe me it makes a world of difference in low light shots.
The other factor is the larger pixels at 1.40µm, so that you get, even more light in photos, but it doesn't even stop here!

One of the sensors has a wide angle lens, so you'll be able to capture wide-angle shots like with the LG G5 and V20, and get this the other sensor might have narrow lenses, but will offer 2.3x OPTICAL ZOOM!
That's right folks, not digital - OPTICAL.
It means, no quality loss if you zoom 2.3x times, and that is simply amazing for a smartphone.

I know how you all love your battery backup, so Zenfone 3 Zoom will have 5000mAh battery, and pack the very efficient and fast Snapdragon 625!
Asus have stated up to 40 - days standby time for the device, and not only that, but you will have Gorilla Glass 5 for protection

and 4GB RAM and 64GB of Storage.
It will also come in different colour options

No info is available on pricing, but the phone will launch in late February or early March.
