  1. Price of under 28k to 30k for Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom could be great, as moto z play support same soc with moto mods where as Asus has dual cameras. If its higher side, then honor magic would be good, it will be like 38k to 40k.

  2. All of us giving a hint of pricing to Asus by talking and guessing of price please don’t price it by self let the company decide of price. Hope it may be in mid range.

  3. Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom specs look great, but Asus will price it so high that most people will get scared to put their money on.

  4. Asus are premium phones. But their camera, software and fine details are worth the price Those who can wait for big sale day can get them at good discounts. I recommend Asus laser phones to everyone and this with dual camera will be the best !!

    1. Nope, it would be around 48k. Current Zenfone Zoom is selling around 35-38k.

      Asus getting terribly wrong on pricing these days. With this attitude, Nokia has bowed out. Samsung started acknowledging reality by launching budget devices. But Asus doing reverse.

    1. Asus started horribly pricing its recent phones. Asus deluxe for e.g 45k so don’t expect any budget oriented pricing. May be 28 – 32 k.

      1. Zoom 2 comes around 38 I expect Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom around 45k, hope so its doesn’t go that way.

  5. Using zenfone laser for last one and half year. Inspired by Asus quality. Will surely switch to this one. Waiting eagerly for Asus Zenfone 3 zoom to be available for a price up to 15k.

    1. To buy Zenfone 3 Zoom for 15K you will need to wait until 2018 then you can buy second hand at that price.

    2. It would be more than 40k dude 15 me kya ata hai they gave all high end specification, more than S7 edge.

  6. Again sd625 on Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom, price will be around 40k for sure, as by recent experiences.
