ASUS’ ZenFone 3 Zoom packs a 5,000mAh battery


ASUS has officially unveiled the ZenFone 3 Zoom at CES this year, which is a refresh of its camera-focused line that cuts back on the camera in order to make room for a massive 5,000mAh battery. Despite that massive battery, the ZenFone 3 Zoom is 3mm slimmer than the original device.

Where the ZenFone 3 Zoom differs from the original is its lack of 3X optical zoom. The newest iteration does feature a dual-camera setup, but one of the two lenses is only 2.3X magnification. The other lens features a 12 megapixel wide-angle lens with an f/1.7 aperture. That’s pretty similar to the setup found in the iPhone 7, which allows you to shoot photos with a bokeh effect of blurring the background with the subject in focus.
