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.

The ZenFone Selfie smartphone impresses you with its cameras. It is equipped with a 13MP auto focus rear camera with LED flash. The camera can shoot Full HD videos at 30fps. It comes handy with great features like Face detection, Geo tagging, High Dynamic Range mode (HDR) and Touch to focus.

Another exciting feature in this phablet is its 13MP front facing camera which is also equipped with a LED flash. The front f/2.2 camera makes up for the loss with a wide 88-degree field of view, thus making it easier for group selfies (“wefies”), and can take the selfie experience to a higher platform.
