Asus has pulled the wrappers off a new phone that puts taking selfies front and centre. So much so that it even has the word in its name.
The Asus ZenFone Selfie is essentially an amped-up version of the Taiwanese tech giant’s ZenFone 2. The key draws are dual 13-megapixel cameras, a feature which garnered interest last year when rival HTC released its similar Desire Eye selfie phone.
The rear-facing shooter comes with a f/2.0 lens with laser autofocus. The front–facing number packs a f/2.2 lens and an 88 degree field of vision.
That means you’ll be able to cram more people or more scenery into the back of your self–taken shots.
Each camera also has a dual–tone flash, the upshot of which is that images taken in low light conditions give less of a 'startled' look to your subjects.
Other than the key cameras, the ZenFone Selfie has a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, a curved rear for improved grip and the latest version of Android Lollipop straight out of the box.
There’s no word yet on when the Asus ZenFone Selfie will hit shelves. But keep an eye out for those obsessed with taking pictures of themselves and you’ll be sure to see one in the wild soon.
