There were so many phones to cover during ASUS’ recent ZenFone launch in Taipei, Taiwan, but no two phones stood out more than the elegant ZenFone 4 and its more powerful sibling, the ZenFone 4 Pro.

The ZenFone 4 Pro flaunts a dual-camera setup with optical zoom and the best processor around in the Snapdragon 835. The ZenFone 4, on the other hand, tones down the power in exchange for a more attractive design and secondary wide-angle camera lens.

Before we conduct our full review, check out our hands-on video straight from the launch event:

Will they succeed? Let’s give them a few weeks (or months) to launch the phones across the globe first.
