The term cameraphone still means that the main feature a phone or smartphone has is its camera with camera centric functions all focused on providing the best camera experience possible. Featuring a 13MP PixelMaster camera and dual-tone LED flash on both the front and back along with laser autofocus for the rear camera, the ASUS ZenFone Selfie seems to fit the bill not only as a cameraphone but also one focused on the art of taking selfies. Does it deliver? We find out in our review of the ASUS ZenFone Selfie.

The ASUS ZenFone Selfie offers a 13MP PixelMaster front camera complete with dual tone LED flash. While it packs in other features like a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor and 5.5-inch full HD display the main highlight of the ZenFone Selfie is it's selfie taking capabilities. As such we took it for a spin against the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 with its 5MP front camera in a selfie comparison shootout. Read on to find out the results.

After being teased for a bit by ASUS themselves, ASUS recently announced the ASUS ZenFone Selfie ZD551KL smartphone. Featuring a Toshiba 13MP camera with laser focus and 1/3 2" sensors on both the front and back with dual tone LED flash, this ZenFone offers rather different tech specs from the more recent ASUS ZenFone 2 range. This includes a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, probably 2GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch display with full HD 1080p resolution, 4G LTE and Android 5.0 Lollipop. Rather than go for their usual brushed metal backside, the ZenFone Selfie offers solid pastel colours in aqua blue, pink and white, although the metallic backplates are also available as well. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet but we expect these to crop up in the comming months.

ASUS Malaysia recently teased that a new ZenFone smartphone could be coming to Computex 2015 with the hint that it is the front of the phone. Incidentally, it shows a front camera and dual LED flash, which when combined with the spaces in the teaser image, could mean that this will be the ASUS ZenFone Selfie. No tech specs or features yet, but we assume that since the standard front camera is 5MP already, this version will either be 8MP or 13MP. The rear camera will likely be the same 13MP PixelMaster camera while the screen looks to be the same 5.5-inch size. Since most selfie takers tend to be the younger crowd we assume that this display will be in 720p HD and perhaps a full HD 1080p resolution for the richer crowd. Other tech specs will likely be the same 2.3GHz Intel Atom processor and 4GB RAM in the current ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE551ML smartphone. No specific Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet, but we expect it to be soon as even the ASUS Malaysia Facebook page is showing the teaser image above.
