Back in August 2016, Asus launched its Zenfone 3 series with a total of four devices – Zenfone 3, Zenfone 3 Ultra and Zenfone 3 Deluxe. Now Asus has announced the launch of Zenfone 3 Laser ZC551KL in India at Rs 18,999 and it will be available on Flipkart initially and later on on other online retail websites.
Asus Zenfone 3 Laser comes with sandblasted aluminium body with rounded sides and diamond-cut chamfered edges. Its 5.5 inch full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display comes with a ‘Bluelight Filter’ which when activated, as per Asus, reduces the blue light emission by 30% making it easy for eyes to read especially in darker environments. Underneath the hood, there is an octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 64-bit processor which is coupled with 4GB RAM. Further, it comes with 32GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 256GB via a micro SD card.
Asus Zenfone 3 Laser has a 13 megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, laser auto focus, and Electronic Image Stabilization. The second generation laser focus system on the phone, has a range of 1.5 meters, which is twice the distance of other laser focus systems. An 8 megapixel camera is in the phone for selfies. To power up the entire device is a 3000 mAh battery that can last a full day for even the most elaborate user.
The device comes in two colour variants – Glacier Silver and Sand Gold.
Commenting on this, Peter Chang, region head – South Asia & Country Manager for Asus India said, “With the Zenfone 3 range, we introduced a series of smartphones in India to appeal to a wide range of audience. The Zenfone 3 Laser is the perfect blend of affordability and luxury, with its high-class specifications at an affordable price tag. With its 13MP rear camera and 0.03 seconds laser auto-focus ability, it is ‘the’ device for the photography enthusiast in anyone.”
