Were you one of the folks craving the ASUS ZenFone Zoom when it was first announced way back at last year’s CES? If so, listen up: you can buy it in the US right now. B&H Photo has the device available for shipping, and it starts at a cool $399.99 unlocked.


The Zenfone Zoom’s claim to fame will be through its 13MP PixelMaster rear camera, a massive unit that provides 3X optical zoom and optical image stabilization without a protrusion. It also looks pretty damn nice — picture a Zenfone 2 with a leather back, and that’s exactly what you have.

As for the rest? Here are the important internals you should know about:

  • Intel Atom quad-core processor
  • 13 megapixel camera sensor with 10-element lens, 3x optical zoom without protrusion, optical image stabilization
  • 5 megapixel selfie camera
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 64GB of storage
  • microSD up to 128GB
  • 5.5-inch 1080p display
  • 3,000mAh battery

And here are the cellular bands it supports:

  • 2.5G (EDGE, GSM/GPRS ) MHz:850, 900, 1800, 1900 
  • 3.5G (HSPA+, UMTS/WCDMA ) MHz:850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 
  • 4G (LTE ) Bands:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 17, 20 

Get it? Got it? Good — go buy one if you’re interested.
