At an event held in Taiwan, Asus announced an array of handsets centered around the ZenFone 4. In total, the firm launched four handsets with the ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro and ZenFone 4 Selfie - boasting that this was the "first family of smartphones to all feature dual rear or dual front cameras, enabling users to capture the best photos in any scenario, at any distance, and in any lighting conditions.".

The ZenFone 4 Pro is the top of the line model for this year, featuring top-end specifications like:

  • 5.5-inch AMOLED display
