Alright selfie users, ASUS has made a phone in your honor. We’ve recently discussed about ASUS’ plans to release a new ZenFone, and it seems the time has finally come. Use it well, and convert others to your photographic ways. After all, what’s the Internet without pictures? According to the website International Business Times, the Selfie reminds them of something else. “In terms of outlook,” they said, “the new Asus Zenfone Selfie looks identical to the company’s flagship Zenfone 2, including the curved candy-bar design and placement power-and-volume buttons under the camera module.”
You may as well have figured out, the main features of the ZenFone Selfie are its cameras. Both are 13 megapixels that come with a 24mm wide angle, Toshiba 1/3.2-inch sensor, Dual LED real-tone flash, HDR, and even a low-light selfie feature. The rear camera even has an advance laser auto-focus feature.
Aside from the cameras, the Selfie has a 64-bit class Snapdragon with a 615 Octa-core CPU. It comes in two different variations. One with 2 gigabytes or 3 gigabytes of RAM, along with 16 gigabytes or 32 gigabytes of storage and a 3000 mAh battery.
Android Authority reports that selfie-sticks will no longer be needed with this phone. The ZenFone Selfie “comes with an optional accessory called Swing, that can act like a kickstand or as an arm extender of sorts, selfie sticks be damned!” Does that mean we’ll see the disappearance of the selfie stick? Most likely not.
ASUS may have a good device for the smartphone industry, especially since people love taking pictures. The phone is certainly geared towards the youth, and those who rely on social media to share their pictures. Although a price has yet to be mentioned, expect it to be cheaper than an iPhone or a Galaxy. Typically, ASUS has been promising to release higher end gear at such a low cost that most people wouldn’t refuse. Until then, what are your thoughts on the device? Is a “selfie” phone necessary for the competition?
