ASUS Makes the ZenFone 4 Selfie Series Official in Taiwan
The ZenFone 4 Max already made an appearance in Russia and details about the regular ZenFone 4 has been leaked as well, but today ASUS has officially announced rest of the lineup which includes the ZenFone 4 Selfie and the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro. These two new devices were actually leaked earlier this week in press renders from Evan Blass, but we didn’t know any specific details about the specs. Today they have been officially announced and we have all the details.
We’ll start off with the ZenFone 4 Selfie as it is the company’s base model that focuses on selfie performance. The device has a 5.5″ 1080p 2.5D display panel (no resolution given right now, but it’s safe to assume it’s 1080p), the Snapdragon 430 SoC, and 4GB of RAM. The back houses a 16MP camera and the front has a 20MP shooter paired with an 8MP 120-degree wide-angle lens, f/2.0 aperture. There’s 64GB of internal storage to play, expandable with a microSD card slot and powered by a 3,000mAh capacity battery all for $280 at launch.
Then we have the ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro which kicks things up a notch into the mid-range category. It has a 5.5″ 1080p 2.5D AMOLED panel, the Snapdragon 625 SoC, and will come in 3/4GB RAM offerings with a 3,000mAh capacity battery. This device has a 16MP camera on the back as well but the front has a 12MP sensor paired with a 12 MP 120-degree wide-angle lens. These are Sony’s IMX362 sensors at an F/1.8 aperture, 1.4µm pixel size, and 4K recording capabilities.
ASUS is describing the front cameras of the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro 24MP DuoPixel camera technology since they’re combining the two sensors. These will use ASUS’ exclusive image processor, the “SuperPixel Engine”, as a way to improve camera quality. Pricing for the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro starts at $380 for the 3GB variant and goes up from there.
We also learned the ZenFone 4 will be made in two variants, one with the Snapdragon 630 and the other with the Snapdragon 660. We learned about two chips for this device in the past, but didn’t know how they would be implemented. It seems there will also be two variants for RAM capacity too so expect the Snapdragon 630 version to have 4GB of RAM while the more expensive one will have 6GB of RAM with the Snapdragon 660. Both versions will have a 3,300mAh capacity battery.
Some details of the ZenFone 4 Pro have also been revealed with its 5.5″ 2.5D AMOLED panel (no resolution given again), Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 3,600mAh capacity battery.
