ZenFone Zoom S’ innovative dual-camera system consists of two cameras: A main camera with an f/1.7-aperture, 25mm wide-angle main lens paired to a 12MP SONY IMX362 sensor with large 1.4µm pixels (1/2.55in sensor size); and a dedicated 59mm, 12MP zoom camera with an instant 2.3X true optical zoom and 12X of total zoom. This setup ensures sharp focus on subjects at any distance. ZenFone Zoom S also has the first ASUS SuperPixel Camera that enables it to shoot photos quickly and clearly in night-time or in low-light environments. The SuperPixel Camera combines advanced hardware and software enhancement by ASUS SuperPixel™ technology to achieve light sensitivity that is 2.5 times (2.5X) greater than that of the Apple® iPhone® 7 Plus, and 10X that of an average smartphone. The ZenFone Zoom S also features Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) for photos and 4K videos.
The ZenFone Zoom S houses an incredible 5000mAh battery that has a much higher capacity than that of an average smartphone. This is paired to a powerful yet energy-efficient Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 625 14nm processor, enabling it to achieve an amazing 6.4 hours of continuous 4K UHD video recording and an outstanding 42 days of standby time. The high-capacity battery also gives ZenFone Zoom S the ability to double up as a power bank to charge other devices. Remarkably, the high power density of the battery allows it to be fitted into a super-slim, 7.9mm full-metal chassis that only weighs a mere 170 grams, making it the world’s thinnest and lightest 5.5-inch smartphone sporting a Dual Camera setup with 5000mAh battery.
