It looks like ASUS is taking some inspiration from Samsung. The company has announced a number of new and interesting smartphones in the market with plenty of variants of each of those devices. Now, ASUS has just unveiled another brand new smartphone, this time at Computex, Taipei called as the ASUS ZenFone Selfie.
The phone features upper mid-range specs, however like its name suggests, the highlight of the device is going to be its powerful front facing camera. ASUS has fitted a 13MP 1/3.2″ Toshiba camera with Laser Auto Focus (Yes, its the same tech that debuted with LG G3) on both the front and the back. So, users can now take amazing selfies and even group selfies, thanks to its 88 degrees wide angle front facing shooter. What’s more the field of view increases to 140 degress when you are using the Panorama mode.
Other specs are also pretty impressive. The ZenFone Selfie comes with a full HD 5.5-inch 1080p resolution display along with a mid-range Snapdragon 615 processor. While the company hasn’t been clear about the RAM on board, it looks like users can choose between a 2GB and a 3GB model. The dimensions of the device are as follow: 156.5 x 77.2 x 10.8 and it weighs around 170 grams. As for the software, the Selfie phone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.
The phone will be available in seven different shades namely black, white, blue, gold, aqua blue, pink and red. ASUS has not yet announced the international availability of the device, but expect it to launch in at least a few neighboring Asian countries in the coming months. [source]
