Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom features a dual 12 MP rear camera with 2.3x optical zoom and Dual Pixel autofocus, with 5.5-inch 1080p display and a metal body, likely allowing users to take high quality photos. The phone also offers LTE, a large 5000 mAh battery, 4 GB of RAM, an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, and Android Marshmallow (upgrade-able to Android 7 Nougat).

The ZenFone 3 Zoom is still scheduled to arrive stateside this quarter (April - June), but Asus didn't reveal an exact release date for it. While we do know that the handset should be sold for $399 unlocked, it's not clear if this is the price for the 32 GB variant, the 64 GB one, or the more generous 128 GB one.

Not long ago, Asus North America said that the ZenFone 3 Zoom would be coming with "better specs" compared to the international version. Unfortunately, the company said that ZenFone 3 Zoom will not have upgraded specs, so it's going to be identical to the ZenFone 3 Zoom that can be purchased in other markets.

ZenUI 3.5: even better features for an even better experience

Recently unveiled at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the brand new ZenFone AR and ZenFone 3 Zoom are not only groundbreaking smartphones with top-of-the-line hardware: they also mark the debut of ZenUI 3.5, the latest step in ASUS’ continuous search for an even better user experience. Curious? Here’s what’s coming your way!

New horizons, wider experiences

The booming VR trend was the hottest topic at CES, and you can experience it firsthand with our very own ZenUI VR 360. Create, view and share 360-degree content without having to download any third-party app: see life from all angles in your ASUS Gallery, create immersive stories with the 360-degree templates on PhotoCollage, and share your favorite 360-degree photos on ZenCircle.

Professional photos, simply organized

Shoot like a pro, save and view your photos in RAW to have all your memories in rich detail. And don’t worry about losing sight of your files, because ASUS Gallery will neatly mark them according to format: quickly find your RAW files at a glance in your thumbnail gallery. Easier to manage, export and edit.

A pleasant surprise each time

Choose your favorite photos from your photo gallery so that each time you wake up your phone, a different wallpaper automatically refreshes on your lock screen.

Vivid themes, lifelike colors

Find new high-quality vivid theme packs on ZenUI Themes. When paired with an AMOLED screen, these themes are sure to become your favorite eye candy! Let your personality shine through with dazzling lifelike colors and high-definition visuals.

Get your health in check

With ASUS ZenFit, health management is easy as a breeze. Easily record your stats when you’re walking, running or cycling, and keep track of your heart rate and sleep quality. Get all the information you need from the activity reports, and have a better understanding of your overall health.

ZenUI Delights: experience moments of delight

ZenUI 3.5 is not only about giving you a stunning visual design; it’s also about optimizing your overall user experience, enhancing what’s good and working on what needs to be fixed. We’ve worked on the finer details that truly make a difference, giving you moments of delights in your everyday life.

Faster, more efficient input: if you generally use your mobile with one hand, you know that holding a somewhat big device can be a bit of a hassle. ZenUI Keyboard allows you to adjust the keyboard size and position for better comfort. And its Text Editing and Clipboard features provide a faster, smoother experience as well!

Separate work and play: when using a dual-SIM device for both your professional and private numbers, let ZenUI Dialer & Contacts help you keep things separate. By setting a default SIM for each contact, you can easily draw the line between work and play.

One scan to connect and share: simplify the way you connect to a WiFi network. Now you don’t need to manually select a network and input its password – just use your phone’s camera to scan a QR code and get connected immediately! You can also generate a QR code of your own hotspot, and quickly share it to other devices around you.
