1 of 2
Chinese smartphone makers Vivo and Oppo have created a strong presence in India with their selfie-focused devices such as Vivo V5 Plus and Oppo F3 Plus. Now, Taiwan-based ASUS has joined the race with Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro. Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro is the flagship model in the "Zenfone 4 Selfie" series and, the company claims, features the world's most advanced 24MP "DuoPixel" front shooter. The device is also being touted as the world's first to come with 4K selfie video-recording capability. Priced at Rs 23,999, the smartphone essentially competes with the likes of Vivo V5 Plus, Gionee A1 Plus and Oppo F3 Plus.

A key highlight of the smartphone is the 24MP dual-front camera set-up with a f/1.8 aperture and Sony "IMX362" dual-pixel image sensor. The front camera is also equipped with features like Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF), Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS), 4K video recording, DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) technology and Super Pixel technology. There is a secondary 5MP front shooter with f/2.2, 120-degree wide angle field of view and softlight LED flash. The selfie camera resolution is set to 12MP by default and that lets the user click photos in "portrait mode" (which adds DSLR-like blurred background effects to the images). One can activate the 24MP DuoPixel resolution in the settings. However, switching to this mode does not let the user try "portrait mode".
