On 17 August 2017, ASUS launched the ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro (ZD552KL) smartphone with Korean superstar Gong Yoo at the Next TV Studio in Taipei. Let’s take a look at the specifications and key features of the ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro, as well as our hands-on preview of the first unit in Taipei!
The ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro (ZD552KL) Smartphone
The new ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro smartphone is designed to offer selfie fans greater flexibility in taking their selfies and wefies. Let’s check it out!
Two front cameras for perfect selfies!
Like other ZenFone 4 models, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro has two cameras on one side. This is similar to how professional photographers use separate fixed focal length lenses with their DSLR cameras for the best possible quality, and to allow them to compose photos with different perspectives.
The big difference of the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is that its cameras face the front, so that it can shoot perfect self or group portrait photos (wefies).
2X brighter low-light selfies with ASUS SuperPixel camera!
The main selfie camera on ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro features a F1.8 aperture lens and the latest Sony Exmor RS IMX362 image sensor. It has a large 1/2.55” size format, and large 1.4μm pixels. Combined with the ASUS SuperPixel Engine that intelligently controls sensor light sensitivity and reduces image noise, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is able to achieve twice (2x) the light sensitivity of a typical smartphone camera and helps users take beautifully clear and vivid selfies, day or night, indoors or out.
120 degree wide-angle second front camera
The ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro’s second front facing, 120-degree wide angle camera allows you to capture photos and videos that fit more of your environment into the frame, so you can include a scenic background in your shot or gather even more friends together and have fun taking wefies – without needing to use an inconvenient selfie stick!
Premium Metal Unibody
The ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro features a beautifully slim, metal unibody that was created by an advanced manufacturing process known as Nano Molding Technology (NMT). Its display is covered by tough Gorilla Glass which is then contoured at the edges.
The metal unibody also features a beautiful, diamond-cut chamfer and engraved detailing around the rear camera lens that shimmers with a radiant luster when viewed from different angles. Although the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro has dual front cameras, it is only 6.85mm thick and weighs only 147 grams.
