ASUS ZenFone Selfie (ZD551KL) Specs & Price

The ASUS ZenFone Selfie is a re-mastered variant of the noteworthy ASUS ZenFone 2. ASUS ZenFone Selfie is designed primarily for selfie shots and to deliver fair performance while offering a great battery life. ZenFone Selfie came into existence when the word of sefies frequently starts to become the order of the day and when smartphones front-facing cameras start improving dramatically in recent years. It is ready to snap selfies any moment with just a quick swipe. Just draw an “S” on the display then smile and shoot.

The upper midrange smartphone adds a more impressive, premium look to the already-awesome specifications of the ZenFone 2. Unlike ASUS ZenFone 2, the ZenFone Selfie performance is reduced.

Display and Camera

The Asus ZenFone Selfie just like the ZenFone 2 sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive multi-touch display, but with Gorilla Glass 4 which is the latest ingenious creation from the world-renowned Corning. ZenFone Selfie’s Gorilla Glass 4 display offers twice (2X) the drop-damage resistance of its predecessor, 2.5X increase in retained strength and is 85% less likely to break in daily use — making it safer and stronger than ever before.

ZenFone Selfie front and back

It is capable of providing a maximum resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD) and has a pixel density of 403 ppi that renders every image in eye-delighting detail; and with ASUS TruVivid technology built in, ZenFone Selfie brings color to life in brilliant clarity, excellent viewing angles and gives you a perfect visibility even under the direct sunlight.
