ZenFone 3 is an agile, exquisite design inspired by the beauty of nature. A glass-and-metal wonder that captures the world with absolute clarity. An extraordinary smartphone for a life less ordinary.
Exquisite design inspired by the beauty of nature
You’ve never felt diamond-like natural beauty with your whole hand. You’ve never felt precision-sculpted glass on both sides. You’ve never felt the aesthetic joy of Zen’s signature concentric-circle pattern, or the tactile excitement of spun-cut etchings. All this because you’ve never felt ZenFone 3. It’s time your senses felt exquisite design. It’s time for ZenFone 3.
Fine craftsmanship, finest finish
ZenFone 3 is the definition of refined craftsmanship. Encased in contoured Corning® Gorilla® Glass and tapering to a thin 6.16mm edge, ZenFone 3 has a fluid, multi-dimensional design that’s finished with a diamond-cut chamfer. To hold ZenFone 3 is to appreciate a contemporary work of art — the passion of imagination realized.
Wide, bright and packed with detail
ZenFone 3 has a fabulous 5.2-inch or 5.5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution to show every detail, and intense 600nits brightness for easy viewing under even the brightest light conditions. Indoors or out, everything you view is clear on ZenFone 3. And with an ultra-slim 2.1mm bezel and up to a remarkable 77.3% screen-to-body ratio, it’s more display and less bulk!
Capture reality, fast and steady
Next-generation PixelMaster 3.0 lifts ZenFone 3’s photography far above the smartphone norm. To capture real-world authenticity, PixelMaster 3.0 packs a 16MP camera with the latest Sony® IMX298 sensor, six-element Largan lens with a large f/2.0 aperture, and subject-tracking TriTech auto-focus for variable distance and lighting clarity in just 0.03 seconds — all protected by sapphire glass for literal crystal clarity that’s intensely resistant to scratches and damage. With both optical and electronic image stabilization for blur-free shots and video, color correction sensor for true color photography, and true 4K UHD video recording, forget everything you know about smartphone cameras — the PixelMaster 3.0 revolution is here.
Ultra-fast 0.03s instant focus & subject tracking
ZenFone 3 has something no other smartphone camera has — its exclusive TriTech auto-focus technology. For the first time in the smartphone world, our engineers have combined three focusing technologies — laser, phase detection and continuous auto-focus — into one harmonious system. Resulting a clear focus in just 0.03 seconds in varying conditions, for all scenarios — and at up to ten times (10x) faster than the blink of your eye!
OIS & EIS
Steadily shot, shake-free photos and videos
While shooting photos, the four-axis optical image stabilizer (OIS) senses and prevents your hand movements from blurring photos. And for videos, a three-axis electronic image stabilizer (EIS) keeps your handheld videos rock steady.
Photos like the actual scenes
Photos will appear as realistic as you view them, with deep trench isolation technology preventing photons of light from leaking from one pixel on the sensor to another, resulting in clearer details. The color correction sensor detects unusually-lit subjects and makes them look natural in the resulting photo. These are complemented by the 4x Super Resolution feature which creates a single, extremely detailed photo; and Real-time HDR that properly shows the resulting HDR photo as you frame it.
Full speed on every front
ZenFone 3’s elegant beauty veils monstrous power, including a 64-bit, 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon™ 625 processor, 4GB memory and desktop-grade Adreno™ 506 graphics performance. This powerhouse processor has revolutionary 14nm Fin Field Effect Transistors (FinFETs) to deliver full-on performance while reducing power consumption by 35%. Then, there’s the mobile and wireless speeds. ZenFone 3 has 4G/3G dual-SIM bay for complete flexibility for up to 300Mbps (Category 7) downloads via either card, and the latest 802.11ac technology for Wi-Fi connections that scream at up to 433Mbps. ZenFone 3 even offers accelerated charging, with a five-minute top-up adding two hours of talk time to the powerful 3000mAh battery — and reversible USB-C for any-way-up connectivity convenience!
Fingerprint sensor with so much more
ZenFone 3’s rear fingerprint is perfectly positioned for the way you hold your phone. It unlocks ZenFone 3 in just 0.2 seconds, and does so much more besides.
Unrivalled smartphone audio with SonicMaster
When you listen with ZenFone 3 you’ll treat your ears to audio that you simply can’t get from other smartphones — because only ZenFone 3 has SonicMaster and High-Res Audio certification. With an advanced five-magnet speaker construction, metal voice coil and expansive sound chamber powered by Smart AMP, you’ll enjoy powerful, emotional audio in every scenario. When it’s time for immersive listening, plug in your favorite compatible headphone or earbuds and experience true High-Res audio quality everywhere you go with ZenFone 3’s studio-grade 24-bit/192kHz playback that’s 4x better than CD quality!
New interface with added intelligence
Incredible hardware demands spectacular software — and that’s ZenUI 3.0. ZenFone’s sublime front end improves the standard interface in unique ways, and our latest edition includes brand-new ideas to brighten your mobile experience, improve productivity and make everyday life just that little bit more fun. See weather updates with real-time animations, or check the time with a stylish clock widget. Feel the depth of parallax scrolling as you swipe through your apps, and appreciate how the subtle blurry effect keeps your focus on the foreground. ZenUI 3.0 isn’t just an interface — it’s the best friend who accompanies you everywhere.
Game smart, win fast, stream smooth
