This time ASUS has released 5 variants of the ZenFone 4 family; the ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone 4 Selfie, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro, and ZenFone 4 Max Pro. Some good news for Malaysia though, we will be one of the first markets to be getting threr variants of ZenFone 4 series courtesy of Lazada and Shopee. Malaysia is officially only getting three of these though – the Selfie Pro, Selfie, and Max Pro. The first week of September, however will see the arrival of the ZenFone 4 to Malaysian shores.
To kick things off, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro; the highest specced Zenfone 4 series will be getting. The mid-ranger comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-core processor paired with 4GB of RAM running an Android 7.0 Nougat overlaid with ASUS’ very won ZenUI 4.0. It comes with a dual 24-Megapixel front camera with DuoPixel technology for better selfies. The detailed photos than can be viewed through the 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD AMOLED display.
Then, we get the ZenFone 4 Selfie. Running on the Snapdragon 430 Octa-core, this thing is no slouch either. The Android 7.0 Nougat device is also paired with 4GB of RAM to ensure smooth operations. The dual front cameras measure up at 20-Megapixels while the selfies can be viewed through the 5.5-inch 720p display. There are two variants of this device.
Lastly, the ZenFone 4 Max Pro the battery life champion. The 5.5-inch display device sports 1,280 x 720 pixels on the IPS technology display its glass front houses.
