At the recently concluded CES event Las Vegas, Asus gave us a good look at the ZenFone 3 Zoom, but it shied away from revealing what its price will be once it hits the market this February. At an event in Taiwan today however, the company gave us good idea of how much the device will cost.
Asus has said that the 128GB model of the Zenfone 3 Zoom will be placed at CNY 3699 in China. In dollars, that comes up to $540 and in rupees, the amount is Rs 36340. Now of course, the prices will fluctuate a lot when the device actually arrives in other countries, but we at least have an idea of the price segment now.
