Asus Zenfone Selfie (ZD551KL) specifications

The new Asus smartphone flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) IPS display with brightness that notches up to 400nits. Under the hood is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939) 64-bit octa-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM and Adreno 405 GPU. With 16GB of onboard storage, a microSD card slot for further expansion is also present, with support up to 128GB.

For shutter bugs, the Zenfone Selfie (ZD551KL) features a 13-megapixel rear camera of aperture f/2.0 with laser autofocus dual tone LED flash, and a 13-megapixel selfie camera of aperture f/2.2 with dual tone LED flash. Armed with a 3,000mAh non removable battery, connectivity options such as dual-SIM 4G LTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and GPS are present on the smartphone. On the software front, it runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 wrapped under Asus Zen UI. Sadly, the company hasn’t mentioned anything about its upgrade plans for Android Marshmallow 6.0.1.

At its price point, the Asus Zenfone Selfie (ZD551KL) will take on the likes of Lenovo ZUK Z1, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and LeEco Le 2 among others. While all four smartphones feature a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display, the key differences come in the form of processor, onboard storage, cameras and battery capacity. Also, the Redmi Note 3 and Le 2 are cheaper by Rs 1,000.
