Description

The new ZenFone Selfie comes with 13 MP cameras on the front and back, both with dual LED flashes and laser auto focus (thus, this is the world's first smartphone to have laser auto focus for selfies). Unlike the ZenFone 2 series, which features Intel Atom processors, the ZenFone Selfie is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor. That aside, the handset is not too different from the ZenFone 2, featuring a 5.5-inch IPS display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, LTE, 3 GB of RAM, and Android Lollipop.

Display

  • Physical size:
    • 5.5 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 401 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    • IPS LCD
  • Screen-to-body ratio:

    Screen-to-body ratio - Shows what part of the frontal area of a phone its screen occupies.
