ASUS held a press event early this morning where the company unveiled its latest series of devices with the ZenFone 4 lineup. The lineup consists of 4 different products, with the ASUS Zenfone 4, ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone 4 Selfie, and ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro.

Starting with the headliner, the ASUS ZenFone 4 features a respectable mid-range spec sheet, which includes a 5.5-inch FHD display. The ZenFone 4 is powered by the Snapdragon  660 SoC and up to 6GB of RAM coupled with 64GB of storage and a 3,300mAh battery.

As for the cameras, ASUS has joined the dual-lens fun, as the device comes equipped with a standard 12MP lens and a 120-degree wide-angle lens. Additionally, the standard 12MP sensor includes OIS and a f/1.8 lens which is exciting for a mid-range device.

Moving to the flagship-level ZenFone, we have the ZenFone 4 Pro. This device features a spec sheet that you would expect from a device looking to take on the likes of the OnePlus 5 or HTC U11. Powering the ZenFone 4 Pro is the Snapdragon 835 SoC, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

As with many of the devices announced today, the ZenFone 4 Pro also includes a dual-lens camera setup, with the main shooter being equipped with a 12MP sensor. However, unlike the standard ZenFone 4, the 4 Pro features an ultra-zoom lens, versus the wide-angle variant.

With kids these days falling more and more in love with selfies, ASUS announced two devices aimed at that market with the ZenFone 4 Selfie, and ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro. There isn’t anything super exciting regarding the standard ZenFone 4 Selfie, other than its dual-20MP front-facing cameras, but the rest of the specs are likely to reside in the entry-level market.

As for the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro, things get a little more exciting. The Selfie Pro comes equipped with the same sensor found on the back of the standard ZenFone 4. However, there is also a secondary sensor which allows you to capture wide-angle selfies with ease. Finally, powering this device is the Snapdragon 625 SoC, which will help you capture 4K videos if you are so inclined.

Pricing for these devices have yet to be shared, but it’s likely that we’re here more in the coming weeks/months. We can also expect these devices to make an appearance at IFA 2017, which is scheduled to kick off at the end of the month.
