The likes of HTC have done so in the past with the Desire 826, Gionee did it with the Gionee E7 and now Asus has done the same with the Zenfone Selfie.

- •Beautification mode that makes your selfie look more glamorous and pretty by balancing and correcting your facial features, completion, lighting etc.

•- Laser Auto Focus technology for the rear camera allowing you super fast focusing speed for clear images.
