Asus is not taking chances this year. Instead of launching one flagship device “to rule them all”, the company has announced six different handsets, each one meant to cater to a different user need. They are all part of the ZenFone 4 series #mobilemagic
Before we get to see Note 8 in action and LG V30, Asus is here to indulge our tech addiction with not one, not two, but six handsets to drool over. Starting from ZenFone 4, we have ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone Max, ZenFone 4 Max Pro, ZenFone 4 Selfie and ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro (I’m out of breath just by writing them…).
As you can deduce from the suggestive names, the ZenFone 4 Selfie and Selfie Pro are all about the front shooter. Both of them have a very impressive dual camera module, with a 20MP sensor with f2.0 aperture for the first one and a 24MP for the second one which is also able to offer 2x greater light sensitivity (or so the company says) thanks to dual pixel autofocus. Plus, the Selfie Pro will let you record in 4K with the front camera, so that’s definitely a bonus for live streamers out there.
You can count on battery life and rear camera abilities when it comes to the Max models. Both of them come with a huge 5,000 mAh cell that can offer 37.6 hours of 3G talk time and 32.5 hours of Wi-Fi browsing on a single charge! Don’t hesitate to use it as a power bank, by the way. They are different, though, in terms of rear camera, the normal Max version sporting a dual 13MP sensor, while the Pro comes with dual 16MP sensor.
We’ll know more about country availability later, but the prices should start at $279 for the basic models.
