Asus is going full speed ahead on their Zenfone 3 Zoom. It’s at the FCC already! This would peg the earliest release date in the US being around 5 to 6 weeks from this point. That’s the earliest we would expect although usually it can be two months or more before a retail release based on the FCC first publication.
Based on TENAA documents, the specs and details of the Zenfone 3 Zoom has spread throughout the internet. To summarize those details from various certification sources, the Zenfone 3 Zoom looks like the body of the Zenfone 3 Max, the processor of the Zenfone 3 (ZE552KL) along with a dual rear camera and high megapixel front camera. The battery which is mentioned to be 5,000mAh is the real story with the Zenfone 3 Zoom because it’s a bigger battery that what’s inside the Zenfone 3 Max (4,100mAh). According to those documents, the screen is going to be 1920 X 1080 AMOLED with 2.5D glass.
Model Number: Z01HD
We wonder out loud whether this could be the Zenfone AR model which Jerry Shen, Asus CEO, talked about recently.
Expect for the official details and unveiling at CES 2017.
