There is no need to belabor the Asus’s glittering reputation in the markets of electronic gadgetry. The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer stands tall and apart from its opponents owing to its profound intellect, innovation and integrity. Its impressive and flawless stream of laptops, desktops, mobile phones, monitors, graphics card and more, has made its contemporaries feel a twinge of envy, and that’s enough to deduce why the company is reckoned as Asia’s 10 best IT organizations. What acheivement should be emboldened is its highest recorded turnover in the year 2014, which made it featured in BusinessWeek’s ‘InfoTech 100‘. Not a piffling victory, indeed.
No doubt, Asus is a front-ranking electronics giant, and again, the company is a popularity-grabber following its ambitious release recently. The wonder bag has opened, and what has come to the spotlight is Asus Zenfone 2 Selfie, a smartphone invented in harmony with the present generation – the ‘selfie’ generation. Needless to say, the craze for selfies, a form of self-love, has permeated all over, and there are endless cohorts of this phenomenon. The greatest advantages of selfie practice are the reduced dependence on the people around you for a picture, when you look like a million dollars, and the next being its sheer randomness. In the loo? Get it clicked; on the sea shore? Capture it; met a famous celebrity? Why to wait to go wild with a selfie? Selfie works everywhere, provided that you must have a high-power smartphone with a good MP camera.

Asus has learned the need of the modern world, and launched Zenfone 2 Selfie, and we have pinned our hopes on this new selfie-driven gadget. The latest in the Zenfone series is unveiled for the selfie enthusiasts. It must be noted that while the Zenfone 2 was introduced earlier this year, Asus played smart and added a selfie camera at Computex, in an attempt to boost the sales and rev up its global performance. We wish you to get an insight into the dynamics of Zenfone 2 Selfie, and here is our impression about the debutant.
As far as the body is concerned, Asus Zelfone 2 Selfie is exactly the same as the other variants under the aegis. A range of features have been kept intact, so as not to dent its recognition value. While building the ‘selfie’ phone, features like plastic covering, power button on the top, metal finish, volume rocker at the back and curved arcs are largely retained. Overall, the exteriors are satisfactory, rendering a premium feel to the newly-built smartphone.
Screen and Resolution
The most significant part about the latest release from the house of Asus is that it is studded with a 5.5-inch screen and a 1920×1080 resolution, and not to miss, a 403 ppi.
Robust Processor, Superb RAM
Powered by 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, Asus Zelfone 2 Selfie is capable of performing a myriad tasks with immense ease and precision. The smartphone has descended in the markets in two different RAM variants – 2GB RAM and 3GB RAM. Much more to say is that the customers can buy this smartphone available for purchase either with 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage, which is further expandable to 64GB via MicroSD card.

Since it is pitched as a ‘selfie’ phone, the landmark is its camera, which goes beyond expectations. Asus Zelfone 2 Selfie comes with an exemplary 13MP front-facing camera, which is sure to capture the most clear, focussed and stately pictures with no disappointment at heart. Further on the list is the integration of dual-LED flash to render day-like ambience to click the snaps. The Zenfone Selfie camera, the crux of the gadget, is also laced with a similar setup.
Speaking articulately, the front-facing camera is dipped in excellence with features like 1/3.2-inch Toshiba sensor, an f/2.2 aperture and a 24mm focal length. On the other hand, the rear camera has been brilliantly developed by accommodating the power of 1/3.2-inch Toshiba sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and a 28mm focal length. Both the cameras are backed with the laser autofocus system.
The user interface of the camera is akin to the one used in Zenfone 2, but will surely enthrall you. The front-camera works on selfie-panorama mode, HDR mode, selfie low light mode and so on and so forth. If image quality is discussed, it is pleasant and well defined.
Android 5.0 Lollipop
Asus Zelfone 2 Selfie has also occupied Android 5.0 Lollipop OS and Asia’s proprietary ZenUI skin, which definitely makes it worth your investment. The smartphone is crisp and free of any operational pitfalls. Working on it is a matter of absolute breeze.
Release Date and Price
Though, Asus has not revealed the price of Zelfone 2 Selfie, nor do have any idea about its launch in India, it is estimated that the cost of this phone will sway between Rs 18,000 – Rs 20,000/-, considering its high-quality features. It would be exciting to see the price game of Asus as it has already been selling Zenfone 2 with different configuration under three varied price tags. Let us see with the fingers crossed!
