Dual selfie cameras and exclusive photography features enable users to capture gorgeous, high-resolution selfies and 120° super-wide-angle wefies

 

TAIPEI, Taiwan, August 17, 2017 — ASUS today announced the ZenFone 4 Selfie Series, Android™ smartphones featuring high-quality, dual front-facing cameras and intuitive yet powerful image processing software that enables users to easily capture beautiful selfies and super-wide-angle wefies with their friends in any conditions.

The all-new SelfieMaster app lets users apply real-time beautification effects to selfies, videos, and live-streams, and the cameras' Beauty mode enables professional-quality adjustments — such as skin softening, eye enhancement and facial-feature balancing — with just a few taps. With its compelling combination of dual cameras and beautification features, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Series provides the best all-round selfie photography experiences, letting users have fun, express themselves and portray the perfect version of themselves to the world.

 

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro — the flagship model of the ZenFone 4 Selfie Series — has the world's most advanced selfie camera with a Sony IMX362 dual-pixel image sensor and ASUS SuperPixel™ Engine that enables users to capture 2X-brighter low-light selfies and astonishingly detailed 4K UHD selfie videos. ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro also comes with a 120° super-wide-angle wefie camera that makes it easy to fit multiple people or the surrounding environment into the shot, perfect for social occasions and travel.

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is available in three beautiful colors: Rouge Red, Sunlight Gold and Deepsea Black

 

2X greater light sensitivity

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro features a main selfie camera with a f/1.8 aperture lens and a Sony® IMX362 image sensor with large, 1.4µm pixels for 2X-greater light sensitivity than typical smartphone cameras[1]. Larger pixels increase the camera’s sensitivity to light, and decrease the graininess of resulting photos — especially those shot in low-light environments. Combined with the ASUS SuperPixel Engine that intelligently controls sensor light-sensitivity and reduces image noise, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro produces excellent quality photos in HDR, especially in low light. ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro takes beautifully clear and vivid selfies, day or night, indoors or out.

When a flash is needed, the Softlight LED flash delivers the perfect amount of fill light — just like in a studio — to soften skin texture and bring out true skin tones to make selfies look their best.

 

120° super-wide-angle wefie camera

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro also comes with a 120° super-wide-angle wefie camera with 200%-wider field of view that enables users to fit their friends easily into the frame for a more social and fun selfie experience. The wide-angle view is also helpful for selfies where users want to capture their environment or a scenic background in their photo.

 

World’s leading 4K UHD selfie video

With its flagship Sony IMX362 image sensor and the exclusive ASUS SuperPixel Engine, the main selfie camera on ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro lets users shoot astonishingly detailed 4K UHD selfie videos. With the same resolution as the latest 4K UHD TVs, videos captured with ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro will look perfect when played in a home theater or living room, with no drop in image quality.

 

High-resolution 24MP selfies

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro has the world’s most advanced front camera system featuring the Sony® IMX362 dual-pixel image sensor, which has twice as many light-capturing photodiodes as conventional sensors of the same resolution. 24MP[2] DuoPixel™ camera technology uses the information captured by the sensor to intelligently create one 24MP photo, resulting in beautiful, high-resolution selfies.

 

Performance and design

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is powered by a 64-bit, 2GHz, octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 625 processor with 4GB RAM and desktop-grade Adreno™ 506 graphics to deliver smooth and responsive camera performance for the best photography experiences, as well as run the latest apps and games with ease.

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro has a contemporary, sleek style and features an elegant, seamless metal unibody made using advanced nano-molding technology (NMT). With a visually frameless 2.5D Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen and an edge that's only 6.85mm thin, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro strikes the perfect balance between beauty and comfort. A bright 500cd/m2 AMOLED display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, and a color gamut that is wider than 100% NTSC makes photos, videos, and other content look as vibrant as real life.

 

ZenFone 4 Selfie

ZenFone 4 Selfie features dual, front-facing cameras, including a high-resolution, 20MP main selfie camera and a 120° super-wide-angle wefie camera. A Softlight LED flash delivers the perfect amount of fill light in low-light conditions, softening skin texture and bringing out true skin tones to make selfies look their best. In addition to its dual selfie cameras, ZenFone 4 Selfie features a rear, high-resolution 16MP camera with fast, phase-detection autofocus for capturing every precious moment with vivid clarity and stunning detail.

ZenFone 4 Selfie comes with a triple-slot tray that accepts two SIM cards for dual data connections, with speeds of up to 150Mbps and an additional MicroSD slot to expand storage by up to 2TB. Its convenient design lets users install both SIMs and a MicroSD card in one easy step.

ZenFone 4 Selfie is available in four beautiful colors: Sunlight Gold, Rose Pink, Deepsea Black and Mint Green

 

16MP rear camera

In addition to its dual selfie cameras, ZenFone 4 Selfie features a rear 16MP camera to let users capture every precious moment with vivid clarity and stunning detail. Its phase-detection autofocus system works in just few seconds to help ensure that users get the shot they want, every time. Additional camera features include Pro mode that enables exposures of up to 32 seconds, and Full HD video recording with electronic image-stabilization (EIS) for detailed, shake-free videos.

 

SelfieMaster and Beauty mode

ZenFone 4 Selfie Series features powerful image-processing technology and camera controls that let users capture stunning selfies easily.

The innovative SelfieMaster app lets users select beautification effects to make their selfies even more glamourous and create the look they desire. With 10 levels of enhancements to choose from, users can adjust the strength of the beautification effect for perfect results. SelfieMaster applies beautification effects in real-time, letting users preview the results and even apply them while shooting video or live-streaming on their favorite social-networking sites.

For even more control, the camera's intuitive Beauty mode provides a variety of beautification effects — including skin-tone adjustment, skin softening, skin whitening, blemish removal, eye enhancement and facial-feature balancing — that users can apply and adjust to their selfies to achieve professional-looking results. The camera also includes Portrait mode, which softly blurs the background to make the subject stand out for gorgeous portraits with a sense of depth and intimacy. The camera's beautification effects can even be applied in Portrait mode.
