Those of you who missed the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales for whatsoever reason, there are still tons of smartphone deals available out there. Case in point: Asus ZenFone Zoom, one of the most appealing Android smartphones around today if you are looking for a handset dedicated to smartphone photography enthusiasts.

Both Newegg and B&H are offering the handset for $199, meaning it’s basically the same 50% off deal Asus was offering on Black Friday on the $399 device.

Launched earlier this year in February, the ZenFone Zoom packs a 2.3 GHz Intel Z380, 4GB of RAM, a 5.5″ 1080p display, 13MP camera with 3x optical zoom, 5MP selfie snapper, 64GB built-in storage (expandable via microSD slot), and a 3,000 mAH battery.

In addition, the handset also brings along a pair of ZenEar earbuds and a phone strap.

Asus claims that the handset’s rear camera is capable of automatically switch to DSLR-like OLS that facilitates 16x longer exposure duration, ensuring a much more stabilized, sharper, and clearer image. Apart from that, the ZenFone Zoom’s laser camera also boasts a 0.03 seconds laser autofocus technology that makes the handset the “fastest possible clarity”. This feature, designed to provide better resources for smartphone photography, can accelerate close-up photography by compressing for the extra distance created by the lens receding while framing.

.The discount offer available on both B&H and Newegg are basically the same, although you could say that the latter is charging $0.99 more. Because the phone comes unlocked out of the box, buyers can use it with any GSM carrier including the likes T-Mobile, AT&T, MetroPCS etc.

B&H has not yet announced the final deadline to avail the offer, but the Newegg offer will expire on Monday. So, better hurry up if you are interested. Here are the links: B&H, Newegg.
