The series is made up of 5 variants: Zenfone 4 Pro, Zenfone 4, Zenfone Selfie Pro, Zenfone 4 Selfie, and the Zenfone 4 Max. Being marketed as phones that offer unique photography experiences that produce professional looking photos, all come equipped with dual-camera systems.

The Zenfone 4 Pro’s 16MP dual rear camera with f/1.7 aperture lens allows 2x optical zoom and 10x total zoom. Zenfone 4, on the other hand, has a 12MP dual rear camera with F1.8 aperture lens that shoots at a wide 120-degree angle capturing more in the frame.

The Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro brings the same wide 120-degree angle up front in its 24MP dual front-facing selfie cameras; fitting more people in "we-fies" and adding background scenery to selfies. In addition, the Selfie Pro has 4K UHD video for both its front and rear cameras. All three also have the Sony flagship IMX 362 image sensor said to be able to capture brighter and more vibrant photos. 

Similarly the Zenfone 4 Selfie’s 20MP shooter also has the same wide-view we-fie camera of its Pro counterpart. Lastly, the Zenfone 4 Max comes with 13MP dual rear camera and an 8MP front camera.  

Despite it seeming like the weakest of the bunch in terms of camera power, the Zenfone 4 Max delivers on battery, sporting a whopping 5000 mAh battery, said to last 46 days of standby time. 

Specs and pricing

In terms of specs, the flagship Zenfone 4 Pro, priced at P39,995 definitely packs a punch; it houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage space, and a 3600mAh battery.
