Zenfone 3 - Built for Photography!
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.
Beauty - 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.

- 2.1mmslim bezel
- Up to 77.3% screen-to-body ratio
Sophistication, outside and in
ZenFone 3 exudes sophistication, a natural beauty inspired by the spirit of Zen. This is embodied by the gentle arc of the contoured Corning® Gorilla® Glass on both the front and rear, in a frame that's just 6.16mm thin. The diamond-cut bevel is but one mark of the refined craftsmanship behind ZenFone 3's creation. A magnificent 5.2-inch or 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD Super IPS+ panel with intense 600nits brightness and an ultra-slim 2.1mm bezel for a up to 77.3% remarkable screen-to-body ratio. No other smartphone is quite like ZenFone 3. It is beautiful to admire, so comfortable to hold - and available in multiple colors to fit your outlook.
Exquisite design inspired by the beauty of nature
ZenFone 3 is work of art inspired by the spirit of Zen, where all parts are as one. You'll feel the aesthetic and tactile joy of our signature concentric-circle patterning, and be calmed by the crystal beauty of the precision-sculpted glass on both sides - a fluid design that evokes the purity of living water and the reflective clarity of ice crystals.
Beautiful to hold and behold
There's a reason ZenFone 3 feels unique - and that's the application of extreme-strength Corning® Gorilla® Glass on the front and back. This wonder of materials science is carefully tempered, machined and polished to be as clear as crystal, as smooth as silk, and incredibly resistant to scratches. We've also created a taper towards the edge, a delightful arc that feels as natural as your grip. ZenFone 3 is comfortable to hold and beautiful to behold - and all this in a premium metal frame that's just 6.16mm thin.
Diamond-cut sparkle and unimaginable precision
ZenFone 3 is finished with a beautiful chamfer cut to a 40-degree angle all the way around, and with a width of a mere 0.88mm. Such precision but our exactness strives ever finer, with a 0.37mm bevel framing the fingerprint sensor, and a 0.18mm ring around the rear camera - almost unimaginable precision.
- Body 0.88mm diamond-cut bevel
- Fingerprint sensor 0.37mm diamond-cut bevel
- Rear camera ring 0.18mm diamond-cut bevel
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!
PixelMaster 3.0 - 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!
Light-speed shots with 2nd gen laser auto-focus
ZenFone 3's rear camera has laser auto-focus technology that achieves focus for close-up subjects in just 0.03 seconds, and it's magnificent under low light conditions. It works by firing a laser beam to measure distances at lightning speed, and then makes fast lens adjustments for near-instant focus. And ZenFone 3's laser auto-focus reaches over three times (3x) further than those of other smartphones.
Fast, accurate phase detection auto-focus in 0.03s
ZenFone 3 has pro-style phase detection auto-focus for accurate, ultra-fast clarity of moving subjects and in bright lighting. This DSLR-style technology detects the paths of incoming light rays, adjusting the lens to bring the focal points together - delivering auto-focus that's as rapid as it is clear!
Focus that never loses focus
PixelMaster 3.0 has both laser and phase detection auto-focus for high-speed clarity - and continuous auto-focus to keep everything in your viewfinder sharp and crisp, no matter how fast or far your subjects move.
Shots as steady as your own vision
ZenFone 3's camera uses an innovative four-axis optical image stabilizer (OIS) that moves the lens in eight directions to compensate for shakes and wobbles, meaning the lens keeps steady even when you can't. With total stability, everyday shakes are eliminated, so every shot you take will be as sharp as you intend them to be. And this advanced OIS means ZenFone 3 is an ace in low light conditions, so you're free to use shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than otherwise - meaning you can set longer exposures to capture more light without blurring!
Movies without the moves
With ZenFone 3's electronic image stabilization (EIS) you'll shoot video that stays steady, even as you and your subjects move. Smart software algorithms detect shakes and sharp movements in three axes, and automatically compensate to keep the footage feeling as smooth and steady as your film is fluid.
Innovative deep trench isolation for clearer photos
Packing the record-breaking 16 million pixels into ZenFone 3's Sony IMX298 camera sensor is a serious technical achievement in itself. But there's more! An intricate technique called deep trench isolation (DTI) directs light photons to where they need to go. Microscopically etched lines between the light sensing pixels of the sensor create an insulating barrier that stops photons of light bleeding from one pixel into adjacent ones - and that means clearer and finer photo quality.
Color correction sensor for truer colors
Smartphone photos are marred by unnatural colors, typically caused by artificial lights - so ZenFone 3 has a color correction sensor to capture the true scene. It detects the type of light and automatically applies the best settings to achieve the perfect balance for natural looking colors.
Excite your eyes with 4x photo resolution
ZenFone 3's Super Resolution mode applies special image processing techniques to create incredibly detailed photos. In this mode, ZenFone 3 burst captures five 16-megapixel photos, and instantly combines them to create a single image with an exceptional four times (4x) clarity. Light or dark, you'll enjoy more detail and less noise - in a super resolution photo with the equivalent resolution of up to 64 megapixels!
Video with unbelievable quality
ZenFone 3 shoots video at up to 4K UHD resolution - or four times (4x) the quality of Full HD! There's nothing complicated for you to do: just point, shoot and share your memories, all captured with incredible levels of detail. But don't worry about eating up all your storage, ZenFone 3 applies High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) to keep your 4K UHD file sizes to a minimum, without sacrificing a pixel of quality!
HDR photos that improve before your eyes
ZenFone 3's new and improved backlight (Super HDR) mode shows exactly how photos and videos look before you've even pressed the shutter! This real-time preview gives you even better control over the results, and makes shooting in difficult light conditions - into the sun, for example - even easier. Backlight or shade, ZenFone 3 shoots photos that are up to four times (4x) brighter!
Sapphire scratch resistance, crystal clarity
Just a tiny scratch on the lens could ruin your images. That's why ZenFone 3's high-quality photographic eye is protected by sapphire - one of the hardest minerals on the planet. And sapphire is more than just tough: it has spectacular transparency for high light transmittance. Literally crystal clear, in fact. With ZenFone 3's sapphire lens protection you're free you to shoot in extreme conditions. Or just to stop worrying about scratches caused by the stuff floating around in your pocket or purse!
See more, even in low light
ZenFone 3's Low Light mode increases light sensitivity by up to 400%, using pixel-merging technology to merge four adjacent pixels into one. Coupled with built-in optical and electronic image stabilization (OIS and EIS) for ultra-steady shooting, ZenFone 3 captures more clarity even when light levels are low - perfect for shooting when you can't or don't want to use the flash!
Extended exposure for fantastic effects
ZenFone 3 is stuffed with controls, including the ability to set the exposure manually - for as long as 32 seconds! When you set the lens to shoot long-exposure scenes, you'll be able to capture all sorts of stunning effects, from science-fiction-style light trails of cars speeding along the freeway, to a night sky filled with stars you'd normally struggle to see. It's as amazing as your imagination.
Capture every childhood smile
Taking photos of kids can be a challenge, because they love to run, hide and pull silly endless faces. But Children mode in ZenFone 3's Camera app ensures you'll capture their cheeky smiles every time. Children mode plays fun tunes to grab your kids' attention, and then keeps their little faces in clear focus. The moment they pause for breath your ZenFone 3 snaps a photo automatically, and with a fast shutter speed - so you get the best photo, no matter what hijinks they get up to!
