Two months after the official announcement in Taiwan, the ASUS ZenFone 4 is finally now officially available in Malaysia! Officially retails at RM2,099, the ZenFone 4 we are getting is the ZE554KL variant.
The device sports a 5.5-inch Full HD Super IPS+ display, instead of AMOLED panel like the Pro version. Unfortunately, the Malaysian unit (ZE554KL) is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, not the higher-end Snapdragon 660 SoC. The phone packs 6GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage like most flagship smartphones nowadays, though.
In terms of camera, the ZenFone 4 now comes with a 12MP Sony IMX362 f/1.8 lens + a 8MP 120˚ wide-angle lens. It still has the same 4-axis OIS and TriTech+ AutoFocus system. Selfie wise, there’s a 8MP f/2.0 front-facing shooter with an 84˚ field of view.
Unlike its predecessor, the ZenFone 4 now comes with a dual-speaker setup. The device runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat on top of ZenUI 4.0. Additionally, its 3,300mAh battery now supports fast charging as well, an improvement over its predecessor.
Interesting in getting one? You can now purchase the device on ASUS online store at Lazada, retailing at RM2,099.
