What are you willing to sacrifice in order to get the best image quality out of your smartphone?  ASUS is taking a page out of Nokia’s handbook and bringing back the large hump for the ZenFone Zoom.  We’re looking at the next best thing in smartphone photography. This new ZenFone features the world’s thinnest 3x optical-zoom smartphone with an innovative 10-element HOYA lens arrangement, paired with ASUS’s PixelMaster technology, it almost guarantees the best possible picture.  This newest smartphone will have a metallic unibody design, coming in at 5mm thin, with a leather rear panel finish that blends together a traditional camera look.  The sensor is a high-resolution Panasonic SmartFSI, running at 13 megapixels with a focal length of 28-84mm.

Its not all about the camera as this phone has some hefty specs:

-Intel Atom Quad Core Z3590 (up to two cores at 2.5GHz) or Intel Atom Quad Core Z3580 (up to two cores at 2.3GHz)
-64GB internal storage
