All set to be competitive in the flagship department.
Along with announcing several ZenFones for this year, ASUS decided to replace the “Deluxe” moniker used to refer to their top-tier smartphones to a more formal “Pro” branding with the ZenFone 4 Pro. Just like flagships in its tier, the ZenFone 4 Pro brings in all the best possible tech within that slim, aluminum unibody design.
ZenFone 4 Pro
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor
- 6GB LPDDR4 RAM
- 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display, 1920 x 1280 resolution
- 64GB internal storage, expandable via microSD slot up to 2TB
- 12-megapixel, f/1.7 primary rear camera with ASUS Superpixel engine, PDAF, EIS, OIS, and RAW image support
- 16-megapixel, f/2.4 secondary rear camera with 2X zoom
- 8-megapixel, f/1.9 front camera
- Dual SIM
- 3G. LTE
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, Fingerprint Scanner
- Android 7.1 Nougat with ZenUI
- 3600mAh battery
Among the things worth noting with the ZenFone 4 Pro is its use of an AMOLED Display, which is a shift from using IPS displays in previous ZenFone iterations (along with some models in the ZenFone 4 family). Just like the flagship models it will be competing against, the ZenFone 4 Pro will also use a Snapdragon 835 processor, having the same 6GB LPDDR4 RAM used in the ZenFone 3 Deluxe last year. To keep the phone running, the ZenFone 4 Pro comes with a 3600mAh battery, and runs Android Nougat (7.1) out of the box.
Also worth noting with the ZenFone 4 Pro are its cameras, all using Sony’s IMX sensors. The main rear camera is a 12-megapixel, f/1.7 snapper with 4-stop OIS and ASUS’ Superpixel engine, while the secondary camera is a 16-megapixel, f/2.4 snapper with 2x zoom.
Meanwhile, the front camera is an 8-megapixel, f/1.9 one with EIS (for videos) and ASUS’ SuperPixel engine.
