In a related development, Asus is hosting an event in New Delhi to officially launch the much-awaited camera-centric flagship smartphone Zenfone Zoom in India.

It is the thinnest smartphone to boast 3X Optical Zoom feature. Other notable features include OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) and 10-element lens that can add 12X digital zoom for finer close-up details.
