Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom Android smartphone gets delayed in the US

While an early version of this handset was shown at CES in January, Asus has decided to delay its launch until Q2 to improve its specs and to provide "an awesome smartphone to use."

Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom arrived last week in Taiwan, being supposed to hit the US market this quarter as well. Sadly, Asus North America has decided to spice up the specs of this handset, thus delaying its arrival by a few months.

"Unfortunately, the ZenFone 3 Zoom has been delayed until Q2. We're reworking it with better specs so you and many others can have an awesome smartphone to use," reads a Facebook post by Asus. For now, the changes have not been detailed, while the launch date is not set, either. When asked about it, Asus only mentioned that the updated ZenFone 3 Zoom could reach the US between April and June.

This handset was supposed to retail in the US unlocked for $399 USD. Its highlights include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, a 5.5-inch full HD display, as well as a dual camera setup capable of 2.3X optical zoom. We can only hope that the price remains unchanged while some specs get a minor improvement, but that remains to be seen.
