News & Reviews: ASUS ZenFone Zoom specification
Last Updated: Dec 02, 2015
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.

An Anonymous source recently gave us some hands-on time with the upcoming ASUS ZenFone Zoom earlier dated for a December 2015 release here in Malaysia. Our first impressions of the ZenFone Zoom is that while it retains features of the ZenFone series (concentric circles, etc.) it doesn't look like any ZenFone we've seen so far, in a very good way.

While ASUS are all set to make a whole bunch of announcements at CES 2015 on 5 January 2015, they've released a teaser trailer on what they could be unveiling. The video asks you to "SEE WHAT OTHERS CAN'T SEE" but what you should really be paying attention to are the dots and spaces in the video. This is actually morse code for "OPTICAL ZOOM", confirming rumours we've heard about an optical zoom capable, perhaps being called the ASUS ZenFone Zoom. A good example would be something like the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom which retails for around RM1699 but if ASUS can push the price below RM1K, we're sure that the number of interested parties may increase. Hopefully, they'll also be able to make the telescoping zoom lens more compact but we'll find out more tech specs and features in the next few days. If you can't wait, do stand by here and watch their announcements for yourself. Check out the video and translate the morse code yourself below:
