ASUS Joins The Dual Trend with ZenFone 3 Zoom

ASUS ZenFone AR and  ZeonFone 3 Zoom has officially been announced but as a photography enthusiast, I am more interested with ASUS Zoom’s dual camera set up.

Being an Honor 6 Plus user and a fan of the Huawei P9, I am curious as to how the ZenFone 3 Zoom’s dual camera set up will deliver. The iPhone 7 Plus produces neat portrait photos with its dual camera set up and Samsung has yet to produce one.

The dual camera set up of the ZenFone 3 Zoom packs a 12-megapixel rear cameras, Sony IMX362 image sensor, f/1.7 aperture, 1x, 2.3x optical zoom, laser AF, PDAF, EIS, OIS, 4K video recording. Here’s the rest of the ingredients:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor
  • 3GB/4GB of RAM
  • 5.5-inch, full HD Super AMOLED display, Gorilla Glass 5 protection, 1920 x 1080 resolution
