ASUS Announces ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro

    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 ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro, an Android™ smartphone featuring high-quality, dual front-facing cameras and intuitive yet powerful image processing software that enables users to easily capture beautiful selfies and wefies with their friends in any condition. The all-new SelfieMaster app lets users apply real-time beautification effects to selfies, videos, and live-streams, and the camera's 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, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro 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 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 video. 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 an 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 . 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 uses hardware and software digital signal processing to intelligently boost sensor light sensitivity and reduce image noise, 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 selfie camera system, featuring the Sony IMX362 dual-pixel image sensor that has twice as many light-capturing photodiodes as conventional sensors of the same resolution. 24MP DuoPixel™ camera technology uses the information captured by the sensor to intelligently create one 24MP photo, resulting in beautiful, high-resolution selfies.

    SelfieMaster and Beauty mode

    ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro features powerful image-processing technology and camera controls that enable users to 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.

    16MP rear camera

    In addition to its dual selfie cameras, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro features a rear 16MP camera with a Sony image sensor and ASUS SuperPixel Engine to let users capture every precious moment with vivid clarity and stunning detail. Its phase-detection autofocus system works in just 0.03 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, true 4K UHD video recording with electronic image-stabilization (EIS) for detailed, shake-free videos, and RAW file support.

    Performance and design

    ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is powered by a 64-bit, 2.0GHz, 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 Nano Molding Technology (NMT). With a visually frameless 2.5D 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 500-nit AMOLED display with Full HD (1920 by 1080) resolution, and a color gamut that is greater than 100 percent of NTSC color space makes photos, videos, and other content look as vibrant as real life.
