ASUS has just announced yet another ZenFone 4 smartphone, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite. For those of you who do not remember, the company actually debuted four ZenFone 4 smartphones back in August, including the ZenFone 4 Selfie, well, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite is inferior to the ZenFone 4 Selfie, as its name says, and this smartphone was just announced in the Philippines. Needless to say, this is a budget smartphone, read on.
The ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite is made out of metal, this phone sports a single camera on the back, and it has a front-facing fingerprint scanner. ASUS claims that this fingerprint scanner will unlock the phone in 0.3 seconds, and that fingerprint scanner also serves as the phone’s home key. The ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite does not exactly sport thin bezels, and black bars are also present around its display, though that was to be expected from such an affordable device. The ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite features a 5.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display, which comes with a 2.5D curved glass on top of it. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 425 64-bit SoC, and it also includes 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The device comes in two storage variants, the more affordable variant of the device packs in 16GB of native storage, while the more expensive one comes with 32GB of internal storage. It is worth noting that both variants offer microSD card expansion, and you’re also going to get 100GB of Google Drive cloud storage for 1 year if you purchase this phone.

Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed on the device, and on top of it, you’re getting ASUS’ ZenUI 4.0 skin. This phone comes with two SIM card slots (2x nano SIM slots), while the phone also offers 4G LTE connectivity. The phone comes in Deepsea Black, Sunlight Gold, Rose Pink and Mint Green color variants, though ASUS still did not reveal the phone’s pricing, but it is expected to cost around $150 (both variants), the company will hopefully release price points for these two phones soon.
