Update: The Amazon listing/link below is currently showing as “unavailable”. In the meantime, we spotted a US based retailer (with international shipping) selling the Zenfone 3 Zoom for $329. Check it out here.
The Zenfone 3 Zoom was originally coming in February, then was going to be delayed until Q2 2017 for improvements. But as of today, you can buy one for $406 USD from Amazon.com! If you live in Canada, they will also ship to you.
From the listing, it’s sold by and shipped by Amazon.com. They list North American carrier compatibility. In other words this appears 100% legit and is not a 3rd party selling an international version of the Zenfone 3 Zoom.
Something noteworthy here is the display. I have a Zenfone 3 Deluxe which sports the super AMOLED display which is truly premium. Yes, the Zenfone 3 Zoom has this same AMOLED display technology! So I can honestly tell you that it’s absolutely visually stunning as comparison to the LCD screen type.
The Zenfone 3 Zoom packs a big 5,000mAh battery which surpasses the 4,100mAh found in the Zenfone 3 Max series. The Zenfone 3 Zoom is also reverse charge capable so you can connect other devices and charge them off of this battery. The processor is a more power efficient Snapdragon S625 along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage. The color is the terrific Navy Black which is amazing from the photos and hands-on videos that I’ve seen.
This phone is really all about the cameras. It features dual rear camera with 12MP/12MP with 2.3X optical zoom, 4K video recording and 13MP front camera.
