Asus a few days back sent out invites for a launch event it will be hosting in New Delhi. It is highly expected that the company will be launching its new Asus Zenfone 4 lineup at the launch. The new lineup was first launched in Taiwan. It was previously reported that the company would be launching the whole Zenfone 4 lineup in India which include – Zenfone 4, Zenfone 4 Pro, Zenfone 4 Max, Zenfone 4 Max Pro, Zenfone 4 Selfie, and Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro. However, the company and its executives have kept their mouths shut about the launch.
We got in contact with some company sources who pointed us to the fact that the company will be launching the Zenfone 4 Selfie and the Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro for sure. As both of these both smartphones names suggest, they are both selfie centric. The company source also told us that both these smartphones will sell exclusively on Flipkart which has been the company’s go to partner in online retail since the start.
The USP of the Zenfone 4 Selfie and Selfie Pro is that they feature a dual camera setup on the front for taking selfies similar to the Vivo V5+. The Zenfone 4 Selfie features a 20-megapixel standard camera sensor paired with an 8-megapixel wide angle lens up front. The Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro, on the other hand, features a 24-megapixel DuoPixel lens paired with a 5-megapixel wide angle lens on the front.
As for the specifications, the Selfie comes with a 5.5-inch 720p HD display paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card. Whereas the Selfie Pro features a 5.5-inch full HD display with similar storage specifications. The Selfie is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, and the Selfie Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 630 chipset. Both the devices are backed by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery and run on Google’s Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system.
We currently only know that these smartphones will be Flipkart exclusive. We weren’t able to get any information on the availability or pricing of these smartphones.
