As selfies make way for video streams, you can now beautify your live videos on-the-go
Bangalore, May 30 2017: Take a quick look at your Facebook feed. Chances are that almost 50% of stuff on your feed are live videos at any given time of the day or night. Unless you've been living under a rock (a fairly large one), you would know by now that Facebook and Instagram now allow you to go live at will, and broadcast your videos in real-time. Since a lot of us are inherently self-obsessed, we want to feature ourselves in most live videos. While selfies today make us look more stunning than we actually are, videos somehow seem to show us in all our blemished glory! Well, not really.
Asus has recently launched a device that integrates with Facebook and beautifies your live videos on-the-go. The ZenFone Live comes with an in-built app called BeautyLive that syncs up automatically eith your Facebook, Instagram and YouTube accounts.
Basically, the feature applies a beautification filter to your live videos and lets you choose from a scale of 1 to 10. Depending on lighting conditions and backgrounds, you can choose the requisite level of beautification, as you go live. Obviously, a feature like this requires a good camera. The ZenFone Live comes with a 13 MP back and 5MP front camera with soft-light LED flash and an enhanced 82 degrees field of view, that allows you to capture more real-estate in your videos.
To round off its live video enhancements, the ZenPhone live is equipped with ultra-sensitive MEMS microphones that auto-cancel background noise while enhancing speech. The device has enhanced playback features as well. With DTS 7.1 channel surround on headphones, the audio output is impressive. With a 5 magnet loudspeaker and smart amplifier, even call voice reception is good.
Powered by a Snapdragon octa core chooser, the ZenFone Live comes in a 2GB + 16GB configuration expandable upto 128 GB, and powered by a 2650 mAh battery. Available in black, pink and gold, the device is priced at Rs. 9999. Quite a good deal if you ask us.
