Asus Zenfone 4 series makes the trip to the US
Asus announced the launch of its Zenfone 4 series a few months ago, with the lineup of six devices being launched in Europe towards the end of September. The series is finally set to make its way across the pond, though, with Asus confirming the availability of the devices in the US.
Of the original lineup, only three devices will be launched for the US market: The Zenfone 4, Zenfone 4 Pro, and Zenfone 4 Max. The Zenfone 4 is Asus' midrange offering in the series, as it sports a 5.5-inch FHD display, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, dual rear cameras (12 MP + 8 MP), and a Snapdragon 626. It will retail for a sizeable price of US$399.
The Zenfone 4 Max, quite bewilderingly, comes in two flavors: One with a 5.5-inch FHD display, and another with a 5.2-inch HD display. The former has a 5000 mAh battery and will cost US$199, while the latter has a 4100 mAh battery and will retail for US$169. Both devices feature dual rear cameras (13 MP + 5 MP), and an 8 MP selfie shooter with flash.
The Zenfone 4 Pro leads the line as the OEM's flagship, with a 5.5-inch AMOLED FHD display (Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection), 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, Snapdragon 835, 12 MP + 16 MP dual rear cameras with 2x optical zoom, and an 8 MP front-facing sensor. It is powered by a 3600 mAh battery and will come with a US$599 price tag,
