ASUS' ZenFone 3 Zoom was officially revealed at CES last week, but the price of the phone wasn't mentioned at ASUS' press conference.
However, the company has now announced some more details in Taiwan. The phone, which will be available next month, will be priced at CNY 3,699 in China (for the top model with 128GB of internal storage). That translates to around $535, but have in mind that the phone might come with a slightly higher price in the US.
Obviously, the 32GB and 64GB models of the phone will be cheaper, but we don't know the exact price yet.
The ZenFone 3 Zoom is a 5.5-inch smartphone with a dual-camera system that comprises two 12MP cameras, one with a f/1.7-aperture, 25mm wide-angle lens and a second with a 59mm lens. Users can instantly switch from the 25mm primary camera to the 59mm camera, giving them a 2.3X optical zoom.
The ZenFone 3 Zoom is also the first ASUS smartphone with SuperPixel camera technology that enables it to focus incredibly quickly and capture clear photos at night or in low-light environments.
Another impressive part of this phone is the 5,000 mAh battery that is sculpted to fit the phone's 7.9mm full-metal body.
The ZenFone 3 Zoom features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and comes with 4GB of RAM and 32/64/128GB of internal storage expandable with a microSD card.
The phone will be available in February, and users will be able to choose between three colors - Navy Black, Glacier Silver, and Rose Gold.
