It also has the capability for electronic image stabilization (EIS) to create blur-free videos. The second generation laser focus system on the phone, has a range of 1.5 meters, which is twice the distance of other laser focus systems. The phone is also equipped with a color correction sensor that automatically adjusts the resulting colors in the photograph, making it look absolutely stunning and natural.
Along with all these high-end features, the premium design of the Zenfone 3 Laser is elegant. Its finely sandblasted aluminum body with rounded sides is perfectly enhanced by diamond-cut chamfered edges. This results in a luxurious looking product to please even the most artistic eye. This carefully crafted design lends the smartphone a sophisticated look, while maintaining its durability and comfort.
When it comes to the display, the Zenfone 3 Laser has a 5.5-inch, full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS panel, which makes it the ideal device for any multimedia usage.
