Asus ZenFone Zoom – 13MP camera with 3x Optical Zoom [CES2015]


Asus ZenFone Zoom

CES2015 is in full swing already and there have been lots of great news coming out of Las Vegas. Asus, makers of the Nexus 7 last year, have returned to CES2015 with an update to their ZenFone line like the Asus ZenFone Zoom.

The Asus ZenFone Zoom is the most interesting news to come out of Asus’s talk. It has a 5.5 inch 1080p screen. That’s not the best bit though! IT comes with a 13MP rear camera which has a 10 element lens and is capable of 3x Optical zoom. Whilst this isn’t new for a smartphone (Samsung have been doing it for years), it’s the fact that Asus have found a way to make the phone not look like a digital camera and kept it thin and good looking.

Details are still coming in, but we do know it will launch in Q2 this year and will retail for $399 (£263/€335).
