The ZenFone 4 sports a 5.5″ based device footprint that surely looks rather premium and luxurious. It’s designed to deliver unparalleled mobile photography with a dual-camera system that features the flagship Sony IMX362 image sensor and a large, f/1.8 aperture lens that offers incredible low-light performance to let users capture gorgeous photos at night or indoors, as well as a 120° wide-angle lens that enables users to fit more scenery and people in the frame.
Under the hood sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 to 660 (depending on country), the ZenFone 4 delivers powerful yet energy efficient performances, backed by a 3300mAH Li-Po battery, while the ASUS BoostMaster fast-charge technology keeps it going longer.
ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro
The cherry of the icing, top of the line is the ZenFone 4 Pro, a similar rendition of the ZenFone 4 but vastly different. Also spotting dual cameras at the back, the main camera is equipped with the industry-leading Sony IMX362 image sensor with a large 1/2.55-inch size, 1.4µm pixels and a wide, f/1.7-aperture lens to capture brighter and clearer photos in low light. The dual-camera system on ZenFone 4 Pro also has a 16MP camera with a 2X optical zoom and a 10X total zoom that brings distant subjects closer, putting them in sharp focus while softening background details. Combined with the ASUS SuperPixel Engine that effectively increases captured light by up to 8X, along with OIS that enables blur-free handheld exposures of up to 1/4 seconds, the ZenFone 4 Pro carries unprecedented camera performance.
Running on the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, much like the ones found in the Samsung S8 devices, you can be assured that performance will be the last thing you will ever have to worry about. The Qualcomm Adreno 540 carries all the horsepower you would need to run pretty much any mobile games at their best settings.

The ZenFone 4 Selfie features dual front-facing cameras that includes a 20MP main camera and a 120° super wide-angle wefie camera. Included is the similar SelfieMaster app that was introduced in the ASUS ZenFone Live earlier this year to snap a different side of you in real-time.
On the back, the ZenFone 4 Selfie sports a 16MP high-resolution PDAF camera to capture vivid clarity and details. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, it comes with 4GB of RAM and a triple-tray slot with SD card expandibility up to 2TB.

Following the line-up is the ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro, featuring Sony IMX362 dual-pixel image sensor that has twice the number of light-capturing photodiodes as conventional sensors of the same resolution, and the ASUS SuperPixel Engine that enables users to capture 2X brighter low-light selfies. The 24MP DuoPixel technology uses the information captured by the sensor to intelligently create one 24MP high-resolution selfies. That’s not all, a 120° wide-angle wefie camera makes it easier to fit multiple people or a wider landscape into the shot.
Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 with 4GB RAM and Adreno 506 GPU, performance is not underlooked either.
