Asus' new ZenFone Live offers real-time beautification

Asus has targeted selfie lovers, and now they announced the smartphone with real-time beautification which is the main marketing point of the device. Previously, Asus said that the ZenFone 3 Zoom would be sold for $399 in the U.S. (unlocked).

Asus has launched a new camera-centric phone called the ZenFone Live that will supposedly let you stream a prettier version of yourself on social media channels like Facebook and YouTube. The only difference this app has over other beauty tools is that it does the beautification while the user live-streams, making it a ideal phone for vloggers.

The BeautyLive feature can also use the phone's microphones to detect and remove any background noise while making live videos.

Asus replied declaring that the release of the much-awaited phone has been delayed until Q2 2017. The chipset powering the handset is not mentioned, but it will be powered by a quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 16/32GB storage variants which can be further extended up to 128GB via microSD card slot.
