ASUS announced a bunch of interesting gadgets at CES 2015 this morning. But the most interesting of which is probably what's going to replace that tired, old Nokia Lumia 1020 camera phone. It's called the Zenfone Zoom.
Based on the popular Zenfone, the Zenfone Zoom is the latest camera-focused spin-off from the Taiwanese gadget giant.
While it can't really hold a numerical candle to that 41-megapixel sensor on the Lumia 1020, it has the chops that other camera phones just don't.
It has a 13-megapixel sensor with 3x Optical Zoom. It’s also good for Macro photography, with the ability to capture images at a range of 5cm.
It's packing advanced Optical Image Stabilistion hardware for still photos and videos on the go, as well as fast laser auto-focus we've seen in other flagship models.
It has a 5.5-inch 1080p screen and a 2.33GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor. It's also running Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Interestingly, the price isn't what you'd expect. Coming on the market in the US in March, the Zenfone Zoom only costs $US399. We'll keep you updated with AU pricing as we get it!
