ASUS CEO Jerry Shen today invited India to See the World Up Close with the revolutionary ZenFone Zoom, the world’s thinnest 3X optical zoom smartphone — heralding a revolutionary new era for smartphone photography.
ZenFone Zoom uses 3X optical zoom with an innovative 10-element HOYA lens arrangement that delivers exceptional clarity and enables close-ups with up to 12X total magnification. With built-in optical image stabilization (OIS) to eliminate shakes and blurred shots, and powered by a high-performance quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor with 4GB RAM for ultra-fast performance, ZenFone Zoom packs DSLR-style shooting experiences into a metal unibody that tapers to a mere 5mm, so it slides comfortably into a pocket.
Introducing ASUS ZenFone Zoom to India, Mr.Shen said that
Photography has become extremely important for today’s smartphone users. Consumers want to capture every precious moment of their lives on their smartphone cameras, and also be able to perform multiple tasks with the same device. With ZenFone Zoom, we are introducing an unbeatable smartphone that complements today’s lifestyles and puts professional photography within the reach of everyone.”
