Asus Philippines Launches Zenfone 3 Zoom – Dual Lens Camera, 5000 mAh Batter, P23,995
Asus Philippines recently released their new addition to the Asus Zenfone 3 smartphones and various iterations in the form of the Zenfone 3 Zoom.
The ZenFone 3 Zoom is packaged as the world’s slimmest and lightest smartphone coming in with 5.5-inch screen with a 5000mAh batter. That and it also joins the bandwagon of current smartphones armed with a dual-camera system.
Zenfone 3 Zoom’s cutting edge system features a main camera with a f/1.7 aperture, 25mm wide-angle main lens paired to a 12MP SONY IMX362 sensor with image 1.4µm pixels (1/2.55in sensor size); and a dedicated 59m, 12MP zoom camera with an instant 2.3x optical zoom and a 12x total zoom.
Asus ups the ante with the ZenFone 3 Zoom as its the first phone in Asus’ line that will feature SuperPixel camera. This technology is able to work around the light sensitivity beating out 2.5 times greater than an average smartphone. Now you won’t have problems taking photos under low light conditions.
Other features for the Zoom include the 5000mAh battery working in-synch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 14nm processor. Total standby time can now last as long as 42 days. All of this firepower is packed neatly into a super-slim, 7.9mm full-metal chassis that weighs a mere 170 grams, making it the world’s thinnest and lightest 5.5-inch smartphone with a 5000mAh battery.
The Zenfone 3 Zoom’s camera comes with the following features:
Dual Camera system – dedicated 12 megapixel camera with 59mm with instant 2.3x optimal zoom and a whooping 12x total zoom.
ASUS SuperPixel Camera – the SuperPixel camera is also geared for low-light photos with improved light sensitivity capabilities, the best in the market and the leading force for smartphones today. The new SuperPixel camera lets you shoot clear photos at night and in low-light environments.
This is achieved thanks to three variables built into the Zoom. (a) 1.4-micron pixel size thanks to the Sony IMX362 sensor (b) a large f/1.7 lens aperture (c) ASUS SuperPixel technology.
RAW File Support
Zenfone 3 Zoom is one of the most photographer-friendly phones out in the market. It gives the freedom to shoot and store compositions using RAW files. The format gives photographers better output with much less degradation of image quality as compared to editing JPEG image files. RAW support will be available with Android 7.0 Nougat.
Continuous Autofocus 4K UHD Video Recording
Zenfone 3 Zoom’s subject tracking autofocus system allows the smartphone to continuously focus on subjects while recording video at stunning 4K UHD resolution.
Zenfone 3 Series Camera Features
The smartphone also comes with the powerful photographic features of the Zenfone 3 series including:
- Four-axis optical image stabilization (OIS) and three-axis electronic image stabilization (EIS) to prevent hand movements from blurring photos or making videos appear shaky.
- Ultra-sharp 4K UHD video recording at 3840 x 2160 resolution.
- RGB Color-correction sensor that automatically adjusts the colors in a photo to look natural and accurate.
- 48MP Super Resolution mode that combines four native 12MP photos to create a single image with exceptional 4X clarity, greater detail and less noise.
- 3MP Enhanced Low Light mode that combines four adjacent pixels to work as a single large pixel that has far-greater light sensitivity. This mode increases the light sensitivity of the sensor by up to 400%, allowing photos to be shot in low-light conditions at faster shutter speeds to prevent blurring.
- 20 different unique and versatile modes that optimize the camera to shoot scenes or add special effects to photos.
Ultra-large 5000mAh Battery and Reverse-charging Ability
Boasting a charge rating of 5000mAh, Zenfone 3 Zoom’s battery has one of the highest capacities of any smartphone — the world’s highest capacity in its class. Paired with the powerful and battery-efficient 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, this high-capacity battery enables Zenfone 3 Zoom to achieve an amazing 6.4 hours of continuous 4K UHD video recording time, or 42 days of standby time, without worrying about running out of charge. Zenfone 3 Zoom is the world’s slimmest and lightest 5.5-inch 5000mAh smartphone, and is a mere 7.9mm thin and weighs just 170 grams.
Zenfone 3 Zoom’s high battery capacity also lets it double up as a high-speed power bank for charging other devices via an automatic reverse-charging capability.
