ASUS ZenFone Zoom released in Taiwan, 2 versions with artificial leather back and 3x optical zoom
We've been waiting for the ASUS ZenFone Zoom for a while now and it looks like the rollout has begun with the official release of the ASUS ZenFone Zoom ZX551ML in Taiwan. So far, 2 versions have been released at 13990 TWD (RM1809) for the 64GB storage version with a 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor while the 128GB storage and 2.5GHz Intel Atom Z3590 processor version is going for 15990 TWD (RM2067). A new addition looks to be an artificial back as well which you can see on the ASUS Taiwan site.
Our initial hands-on pics of the ZenFone Zoom had it with plastic back but the rounded metal frame and all the other features remain the same. These include the signature 13MP rear camera with 3X optical zoom, laser auto focus, optical image stabilization and dual LED flash. Other tech specs include a 5.5.5-inch FHD display, 4GB RAM, Android Lollipop, 4G LTE and a 3000 mAh battery. No specific Malaysia release dates yet but earlier reports have the ZenFone Zoom coming to Malaysia this month with the ZenFone Max.
