The new smartphone features a 5.7-inch Full HD (1920 by 1080) Super AMOLED display with a gamut of over 100% NTSC color space. An ultra-thin bezel gives ZenFone 3 Deluxe a 79% screen-to-body ratio for a maximized display in a compact package.

It also features 3-axis electronic image stabilization for steady 4K UHD videos. All this is coupled with an Asus TriTech autofocus system that automatically selects 2nd generation laser, phase detection, or continuous autofocus to provide accurate and nearly instant 0.03-second focusing and subject tracking, as well as exclusive PixelMaster 3.0 technology. The smartphone also features Quick Charge 3.0 technology to reduce battery recharge times, and a reversible USB 3.0 Type-C port.
