Android 6.0.1 will be pre-installed in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and later can be upgradable to Android Nougat 7.0.
This section is most interesting to talk about as we expect to see dual rear camera setup in ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom. If we believe in rumors, at least one unit would be a 16MP unit. However, we’ll have to wait till the phone actually comes out until we find out whether both the phones will capture one image and digitally refine it later or it will come with a monochrome lens as Huawei P9 or wide-angle lens as LG G5.

Another rumor which we are excited about is ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom will have the power packed 4850 battery. It means you are free to roam anywhere, click hundreds of pictures without worrying and you will still be left with enough battery juice at the end of the day so that you won't need to find a charging socket. As per the earlier models, you can expect that the Zenfone 3 Zoom will be supporting USB OTG, that means, your files or videos will be accessible on ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom. Other than that, we are expecting that the phone will also support the ‘Powerbank’ function which will help you to charge another smartphone and it will come with an adaptor.
While the previous model of ASUS Zenfone Zoom did not support fast-charging, you can expect this feature to be introduced in the new model.
