ASUS ZenFone Selfie has a 13MP front and 13MP rear camera with laser auto-focus

At Computex 2015, ASUS announced their entry into the selfie camera wars, the ASUS ZenFone Selfie: 13MP front camera with dual tone flash, 13MP rear F2.0 camera with laser auto focus, similar to the LG G3 and G4.

Both cameras run PixelMaster technology (the same technology that allows the ZenFone 2 to see in the dark), with dual-color, dual LED Real Tone flash. Laser auto-focus ensures near-instant focusing for clear, sharp images in low light. (See also The history of Selfies, according to Sony.)

If our joy at reviewing the ASUS ZenFone 2 4GB RAM is any indication, then ASUS knows their cameras (check out ZenFone 2 sample shots here).

The addition of laser auto-focus, a coveted feature first found in the LG G3 and carried over to the G4, is ASUS’s way of shaving off “premium” features of “premium” brands but without the premium price.
