ASUS To Introduce A Selfie-Centred Smartphone In Third Quarter of 2015
Gone are the days when photos were captured, by cameramen, only on special occasions, and for typical needs. Nowadays people take pictures of themselves with or without any need on special or ordinary events. These self-taken photos called selfies represent a new new trend in the social media world.
Mobile phone makers are aware of this trend in the market. Thus they have been introducing devices with extremely powerful cameras. There are phones not only with rear cameras but equally effective front shooters as well.
ASUSTek computer Inc., is also introducing a ZenFone to address the fancies of Selfie-lovers. According to Focus Taiwan, ASUS’ Chief Financial Officer, David Chang has shed lights on the company’s plans to launch a new cost-effective selfie-centered device.
