Sometime in January, Asus released its Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom and finally made it available in May. According to one report, the company delayed the availability of the handset in a bid to upgrade its specifications.
Nevertheless, when the phone was finally made available, we saw a reduction of price instead of a specification upgrade.
Quite a significant number of users were not happy after the phone rolled out with the dated Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, considering Android O was already in developer preview mode by then.
However, the company was smart to react by finally pushing out Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for all Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom users, with little changes to the ZenUI tagged with the removal of all third-party applications.
The update rollout has been affirmed on the company’s forum, where Asus reveals to have rolled out ZenUI variant 188.8.131.52.
The update is said to bring an enhanced picture taking experience whilst also offering bug fixes and performance improvements.
To recall, the ZenFone 3 Zoom handset packs a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) AMOLED display and is powered by a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 SoC coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
The handset comes with connectivity options including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC. It also bears a dual rear camera configuration tagged with one 12-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX362 sensor and a f/1.7 aperture, and the other 12-megapixel rear camera featuring 2.3x optical zoom.
The handset has a primary camera that consists of a 25mm wide-angle main lens as well. At the front area, the device offers a 13-megapixel camera with a Sony IMX214 sensor, a f/2.0 aperture, and a screen flash feature.
