The regular ZenFone 4 is pretty much similar to the ZenFone 4 Pro, but specs are slightly less powerful. The device sports a 5.5-inch Full HD Super IPS+ display, instead of AMOLED panel like the Pro version. Powering the device is either a Snapdragon 630 SoC or Snapdragon 660 SoC, depending on whether is it a 4GB RAM model or 6GB RAM model. Its 64GB internal storage can be expanded via MicroSD card up to 2TB.

It still has the same 4-axis OIS and TriTech+ AutoFocus system. Selfie wise, there’s an 8MP f/2.0 front-facing shooter with 84˚ field of view.
