ZenFone 3 Zoom’s dual-camera system consists of two cameras: A main camera with an f/1.7-aperture, 25mm wide-angle main lens paired to a 12MP SONY IMX362 sensor with large 1.4µm pixels (1/2.55in sensor size); and a dedicated 59mm, 12MP zoom camera with an instant 2.3X optical zoom and a 12X total zoom. This enables the dual camera module setup to have sharp focus for subjects at any distance. Moreover, it’s also first ASUS SuperPixel Camera that enables it to shoot photos quickly and clearly in night-time or low-light environments.

Additionally, its enormous 5000mAh battery paired with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 14nm processor allows the device to last 6.4 hours of continuous 4K UHD video recording and an outstanding 42 days of standby time (according to ASUS). It can even act as a power bank to charge other devices.
