With regards to the Zenfone 4 lineup, we have already covered Zenfone 4 ZE554KL, Zenfone 4 Pro ZS551KL, Zenfone 4 Max ZC554KL and here we are with Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro ZD552KL.

But before we begin, here’s to last year’s Zenfone 3 Deluxe 5.5 so we get an idea what it was like previously:

  • 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 1920 pixels or ~401 ppi pixel density
  • Metal and glass body
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection
  • Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 chipset, Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 506 graphics and 4GB RAM
  • 16MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, laser/phase detection autofocus, OIS, dual-LED (dual tone) flash
  • 8MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • 64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to maximum 256GB
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery with Fast battery charging: 60% in 40 minutes (Quick Charge 3.0)
  • Android Marshmallow 6.0
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • August 2016 release date
  • $399 USD price tag

With an almost similar price tag to this year’s offering, it was indeed a pleasure having  Zenfone 3 Deluxe 5.5.

  • Metal and glass body
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Gorilla Glass protection
  • Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 chipset, Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 506 graphics and 4GB RAM

  • Dual 24MP+5MP with LED flash
  • 64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to maximum 256GB
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery
  • Android Nougat 7.0
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • September 2017 expected release date

First up, it will still be sporting a 5.5-inch Full HD metal and glass body, but now coming with AMOLED display technology. The result would be a much better viewing experience.

In terms of performance, the Snapdragon 625 chipset, a fast octa-core processor, decent Adreno 506 graphics and 4GB RAM is still relevant as of today. This puts the Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro ZD552KL in the mid-range segment.

Even the 16MP primary camera is expected to be more or less the same as per last year’s offering. But the highlight of the show will be on its dual 24MP+5MP selfie camera.

The dual selfie cameras provide for twice light sensitivity and 120° wide-angle camera, perfect for taking a wefie. It also lets lets you take perfect self-portraits, capture more people, more scenery, and apply beautification effects with ease. Whether you are taking photos, shooting videos or live streaming, the SelfieMaster app helps you put your best face forward and show your true beauty to the world. There’s also the Softlight LED flash that delivers the perfect amount of fill light — just like in studio — softening your skin's texture and bringing out true skin tones to make you shine like a superstar in every selfie.

Now that we know the true strength of Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro ZD552KL, you should know that it offers 64GB of internal storage. The number of photos that it will be able to store is kind of limited, this is where the microSD expansion slot comes in handy, and you can easily add up to 256GB of additional space.

Moving on to the software side of things, the latest Android Nougat 7.0 operating system is available.

Finally, the 3000 mAh battery should do just enough to last the smartphone for a full day of charge.

Conclusion:

Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro ZD552KL offers one of the best selfie and wefie experience that you can find from a smartphone. Not only that, you get a beautiful metal device with mid-range performance and a battery that can last you for a day.

Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro ZD552KL is expected to be released very soon in September 2017 for approximately $379 USD. You get to choose either Rouge Red, Sunlight Gold or Deepsea Black.
