It also comes with laser autofocus, dual-tone LED fflash and OIS (optical image stabilization) to deliver the best-in-class camera experience in the ASUS smartphone product line.

Overall the Zoom delivers an improved experience over the award winning ZenFone 2 with its Intel Atom Z3590 processor (the ZenFone 2 uses a Z3580), 4 GB of RAM, and a very generous 128 GB of built-in storage for the top of the line model. An expansion slot lets you futher increase this microSD card, though the Zoom does not provide dual SIM support, taking in only a single micro sized SIM card.

A 3000 mAh battery powers the Zoom, which you can grab for as low as Php 21,599 on Lazada today.
