Asus ZenFone Zoom S hits India with dual cameras, 5000mAh battery

Asus ZenFone Zoom S

Asus’ ZenFone 3 Zoom got launched all the way back in January at the CES 2017 as the slimmest phone in the world to pack a 5000mAh battery. The handset has now made its way to India, only it’s called the ZenFone Zoom S in the nation instead of going by its original name.

The ZenFone Zoom S will burn a Rs 26999-sized hole in your pocket. For that much, you’ll be getting a 5000mAh powerhouse which is supposed to last for 42 days of standby time and 2 days of heavy usage. The unit also does double duty as a power bank for other devices.

Other than its battery, the ZenFone Zoom S’ main talking point is its 12MP dual-camera setup. One is the brand’s own SuperPixel lens with 8x low-light sensitivity and the other is a Sony IMX362 lens with 3.2x optical zoom. In all, you’ll have 12x zoom on hand to get up close to an object.

Other photography enhancements include OIS, EIS, an aperture of f/1.7, dual real-tone LED flash, 4K video recording support, Dual Pixel PDAF, laser autofocus, and subject tracking autofocus. The last 3 are collectively known as TriTech+ technology and they’re supposed to make focusing a lot quicker.
