Asus ZenFone Live Smartphone Now Official, Sports BeautyLive Feature

A few days ago I reported that a certain Zenfone 3 Go leaked online via an Italian website called, turns out, the phone is actually called Zenfone Live and that's according to a new page listing Asus put up recently on their international website. Though the name changed, the leaked specs vs what's listed on the site did not.

Asus claims this new ZenFone Live smartphone is going to be "the world's first smartphone with hardware-optimized, real-time beautification technology, making it possible to share an even more glamorous version of yourself - live!"

So what does that mean exactly? Well we are already familiar with beautification apps on our smartphones that we use to make our selfie photos blemish-free and more beautiful before posting them on social media sites right? The idea here is also the same, but instead of activating beautification on photos, the Zenfone Live will do that on live videos through its own BeautyLive App that's build for livestreaming alone. This BeautyLive feature will allow you to beautify yourself in real time while doing the livestream on your social media accounts like Facebook, Youtube, Instagram and many others. 

The Asus Zenfone Live is equipped with dual MEMS microphones that allows the phone, while doing livestream, to pick up your voice louder and clearer while cancelling unwanted noises in the background. Clearly this phone is aimed at users who love not just posting their selfie photos online but also at those who love sharing their activities online via livestreaming.

Asus did not mention a couple of things about this device on their site such as the exact processor it will sport, pricing and availability. Reports claim this phone is expected to be publicly launched during Mobile World Congress or MWC 2017 week, so we can those missing details will be unveiled there. However, according to the leaks prior to this listing, the Live will have a Snapdragon 410 chips inside it and will be priced at around 150 Euros (Php8K in Philippine currency).
