As you may have already guessed, the Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom is a direct follow up to last year's Zenfone Zoom. However even though that is the case for this new device, a lot has actually been changed in this latest version Zoom from outside appearance to the its innards. It still has an Optical Zoom though but the camera module has been tremendously revamped, and instead of just one 12MP shooter, it has now two 12MP main cameras on the back. 

When it comes to the official specs and some features of the Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom, everything has been revealed already during the its CES 2017 event in early January of this year. That means as of this moment we almost already know what to expect from this handset except of course the phones real-life performance. See list below.

Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom specs:
  • 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED Display
  • 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor
  • Adreno 506 GPU
  • 3GB / 4GB RAM
  • 32GB/ 64GB / 128GB internal storage
  • Supports microSD card up to 128GB
  • 12MP dual-rear camera with 2.3x Optical Zoom
  • 13MP front camera
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow with ZenUI 3.0
  • 4G LTE
  • Dual-SIM (hybrid type)
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 3.5mm jack

However, during the official CES announcement event, there were two missing details that Asus did not reveal - pricing and availability. And those are the two main things we are to find out on April 6 event. But to give you a bit of an idea especially on the pricing point, in China it was officially priced at 3,699 CNY which is around Php27,000 in the Philippine peso. And that was for the higher-end model that has 4GB RAM/128GB storage. The local price here in the Philippines will not be necessary the same as in China though, it could be lower or higher.
