Asus ZenFone 3 Laser promo video showcases the phone's strengths
Last month, Asus officially announced two new members of its ZenFone family of smartphones: the ZenFone 3 Max and ZenFone 3 Laser. While both are already available in a limited number of Asian countries (for under $300), they're yet to be released globally. However, the ZenFone 3 Laser will likely make it to more markets in the near future, as Asus is now promoting it in a video posted via its global YouTube channel.
The video - embedded above - shows off some of the main selling points of the Asus ZenFone 3 Laser, starting with its 13 MP rear camera that benefits from laser auto focus (this should be able to focus in 0.03 seconds). Also showcased are the phone's metal body, fingerprint scanner, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Zen UI.
While the camera of the ZenFone 3 Laser should be considerably faster at snapping photos, it'll probably not manage to take higher quality images compared to the regular ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 3 Deluxe, both of which offer better rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilization (whereas the Laser version only has Electronic Image Stabilization).
Since most of the ZenFone 2 smartphones are officially available in the US (unlocked), we assume that the ZenFone 3 family - including the ZenFone 3 Laser - will be released stateside, too. We'll let you know when that happens.
