The Asus Zenfone family is one of the more innovative smartphone lines out there, often packing a host of features and an attractive price. Now, the company has announced the Asus Zenfone 4 range, all packing dual cameras of some kind.

First up, we have the vanilla Zenfone 4, packing a choice of Snapdragon 630 or Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. Other noteworthy specs include a 3300mAh battery, front fingerprint scanner and a 5.5-inch LCD screen (resolution not revealed).
In the camera department, you’re looking at a dual-camera setup on the back (12MP f/1.8 with OIS, 8MP wide-angle camera) and a solitary 8MP camera on the front.
Want a flagship phone? Then you’ll need to check out the Zenfone 4 Pro, delivering a Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage. The phone also packs a 3600mAh battery, fingerprint scanner and a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED screen.
Meanwhile, in the camera department, the Zenfone 4 Pro delivers a dual-camera setup on the back, consisting of a 12MP f/1.7 main camera with OIS and a 16MP telephoto shooter for 2x lossless zoom. Expect an 8MP front-facing camera for your self-portraits.
Speaking of selfies, the company also revealed two new phones in its Selfie range, in the form of the Zenfone 4 Selfie and Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro.
Both phones offer a single main camera (16MP for both) but pack dual cameras on the front. The vanilla Zenfone 4 Selfie delivers a 20MP f/2.0 main selfie shooter and an 8MP wide-angle selfie shooter. Meanwhile, the Pro variant delivers two 12MP selfie cameras (a standard f/1.8 shooter and a wide-angle sensor).
Otherwise, the vanilla Zenfone 4 Selfie packs a modest Snapdragon 430 processor, 4GB of RAM, a non-descript 5.5-inch display, 64GB of storage, a fingerprint scanner and 3000mAh battery.
The Pro model delivers the Snapdragon 625 chip, 3GB or 4GB RAM, 64GB of storage, a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED screen, a fingerprint scanner and 3000mAh battery.
The final pair of smartphones revealed by Asus was the Zenfone 4 Max and (of course) the Zenfone 4 Max Pro, with both packing a 5000mAh battery.
The standard model delivers your choice of Snapdragon 425 or 430 chip, 2GB/3GB/4GB of RAM, 16/32/64GB of storage and fingerprint scanner. Meanwhile, the camera department sees a dual-camera setup (a 13MP main camera and a wide-angle camera with no resolution revealed). Expect an 8MP selfie shooter on the front.
The Pro variant features either a Snapdragon 425 or 430 chip, 2GB/3GB RAM, 32GB of storage and a fingerprint scanner. Move to the back and you’re looking at a dual-camera setup (16MP main camera and presumably low-res wide-angle camera), while the front also packs a 16MP shooter.
Want in on the action? Well, you’ll probably have to import these devices as Asus South Africa hasn’t brought the more recent Zenfone devices to the country.
