Asus launched the Zenfone Selfie in India last month starting at Rs. 15,999. It went on pre-order on Flipkart mid-August. Asus launched the Zenofone Selfie with 3GB RAM – which can be ordered without pre-order.
The Asus Zenfone Selfie 3GB comes in Pure White, Chic Pink and Aqua Blue and is available for purchase from Flipkart for Rs. 17,999. The Zenfone Selfie with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage will be available for purchase for Rs. 15,999 starting September 30, 2015, said Asus.
Being based on the Zenfone 2 platform, there’s little to differentiate the two devices at first glance. Talking about the design, above and below the 5.5-inch display are bezels that are marginally larger here. Below the screen you’ll spot three capacitive buttons under which is a brushed aluminum plate.
Above the screen though is a camera unit that gapes through like the eye of a cyclops. Paired with a dual tone flash unit, it makes for a look that is more utilitarian than beautiful. Turn the phone around and you’ll notice that the volume rocker has been placed as a strip that lies below the camera module.
The Zenfone Selfie has software based on Android 5.0.2 with a highly customized interface layer thrown on top. Called Zen UI, it adds a range of features, enhancements and a whole lot of bloatware as well.
Just to talk about the cameras a bit, both the front and rear cameras have 13MP sensors and have dual-tone flash. Both are auto-focus cameras but the rear camera is also equipped with Laser AotoFocus.. The wide angle lens also helps in capturing more of the surroundings or a large group if that’s what you are photographing.
