Asus Zenfone Zoom S With 12MP Dual Cameras Offering 2.3X Optical Zoom Launched at Rs. 26,999 in India

Taiwanese smartphone brand, Asus has launched its camera-centric Asus Zenfone Zoom S in India today. Priced at Rs. 26,999, the Zenfone Zoom S is exclusive to Flipkart at the moment. Asus has priced the device sensibly and competitively because everyone expected it to cost over Rs. 40,000. The Asus Zenfone Zoom S was earlier launched as Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom at the CES 2017 earlier this year.


Diving into the specifications of the smartphone, the Zoom S’ highlight is the dual rear camera. Asus has added two 12MP sensors at the back. A 12MP primary sensor with a f/1.7-aperture, 25mm wide-angle main lens paired with a 12MP Sony IMX362 sensor with large 1.4µm pixels (1/2.55in sensor size); and a dedicated 59mm, 12MP zoom camera with a 2.3X true optical zoom and 12X of total zoom. The camera tech seems to be an innovative one.

Furthermore, Asus is powering the smartphone with its SuperPixel camera which enables users to shoot photos quickly. The Zenfone Zoom S also features Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) for photos and can record 4K videos. The phone also comes with a 13MP selfie camera with PixelMaster 3.0 camera, f/2.0 aperture, SONY IMX214 sensor, and a five-element lens.

Some of the Asus Zenfone Zoom S camera features:

  • Four-axis Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and three-axis Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) to counter hand movements from blurring photos or making videos appear shaky
  • RGB Color-correction sensor that automatically adjusts the colours in a photo to look natural and accurate
  • 48MP Super Resolution mode that combines four native 12MP photos to create a single large image with exceptional 4X clarity, greater detail and less noise
  • 19 different unique and versatile modes that optimize the camera to shoot scenes or add special effects to photos

Despite the camera, the phone also has the competitive hardware for the asking price of Rs. 26,999. The device has a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The display is a 2.5D curved one and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 technology.


The smartphone is powered by the power-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The device has connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, GPS, AGPS, GLONASS, and BDSS. There’s a rear mounted fingerprint scanner.

Another highlight of the phone is the 5000mAh battery, which also comes with support for reverse charging and BoostMaster fast charging. The device weighs in at 170 grams, even though packing a massive 5000mAh battery, and measures 154.3 x 77 x 7.99mm. It will be available in Navy Black and Glacier Silver colour options.

Elaborating further on the sidelines of the launch of ZenFone Zoom S; Peter Chang, Regional Head, South Asia & Country Head, System Business Group – ASUS India said, “On the onset of World Photography Day, ASUS India wishes to rejuvenate the passion and commitment of photography enthusiast by launching ZenFone Zoom S. We at ASUS have maintained a resolute and enduring commitment to championing mobile photography and ZenFone 3 – ‘Built for Photography’ launched in 2016 is testimony of the same fact. Today, we reinstate our commitment to help consumers catch the beauty of every moment with the ZenFone Zoom S. An incredible device that combines a dual-lens camera system with an unbeatable battery – ZenFone Zoom S will set a new bar for mobile photography.”
