CES 2016 - ASUS is back at the Consumer Electronics Show, announcing its new ZenFone Zoom smartphone with an impressive 3x optical zoom, compared to the virtually no zoom on normal smartphone cameras.

The ZenFone Zoom features a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization, and a laser-assisted autofocus system that provides faster, more accurate focusing compared to contrast detection methods, and dual-tone flash.

Engadget reports that ASUS teamed with Hoya for the 10-element lens in the ZenFone Zoom, with Hoya known for its lens filters. For the image sensor, ASUS worked with Panasonic and used their SmartFSI image sensor.
