Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom goes on pre-order in the US, costs less than expected

The ZenFone 3 Zoom, one of the smartphones unveiled by Asus back in January at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017, is already available for purchase in many markets.

However, the North American version has been delayed until Q2 so that Asus could improve its specs. At least that's what the Taiwanese company said back in February. Fast forward two months and Asus seems to have changed its mind.

Asus apologized last month for its response about the ZenFone 3 Zoom and said that the smartphone would not be upgraded to different specs. That being said, you can now pre-order the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom in the United States via B&H.

The US retailer offers the smartphone for $329, but it doesn't have an exact release date for it yet. It's worth noting that the ZenFone 3 Zoom is much cheaper than the original suggested price of $399.

However, it comes sans the improvements that Asus said it would include such as more RAM and storage. The ZenFone 3 Zoom that customers can pre-order today in the United States features a 5.5-inch display with full HD resolution, 3GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.

The smartphone is powered by a massive 5,000 mAh battery and packs a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, as well as dual-camera setup on the back.
