ASUS ZenFone 6 comes with flip-top camera: All you need to know

by May 17, 2019 0 comments

Taiwanese tech giant ASUS has officially announced ZenFone 6 which is much more impressive in terms of designs and specifications than the ZenFone 5 that simply looked like an iPhone X clone.  For the ZenFone 6, ASUS that eliminating the top bezel entirely and has integrated a new kind of wild rotating camera.

With the new ZenFone 6, ASUS seems determined to create a niche for itself in the premium space instead of just copying Apple or Samsung designs. Thus, instead of a notch of any any kind (teadrop, waterdrop, etc.) or a punch-hole display at the top, the front of the ZenFone 6 looks like a vast expanse of screen flowing all the way from top to bottom.

The flipping camera does makes a sound but don’t worry ASUS allows you to turn the camera sound off but the motor itself produces a slight whirring sound. The camera on the ZenFone 6 is a dual camera system – with a 48MP main camera and a 13MP wide-angle lens that can be used both for group selfies and wide-angle shots and to put in more of the landscape. ASUS has done a fantastic engineering work in designing the rear camera that relies on a motor to rotate the lenses around 180 degrees – and works as both a front-facing or rear camera as needed.

According to ASUS, the camera housing is developed from a liquid metal for improved durability. The automated system will rotate the lens back if it detects that you’ve dropped the phone.

Being a flip-top design, the camera allows you take panorama shots either vertical or horizontal by just holding the phone and letting the camera rotate around. There is also a motion-tracking mode while shooting video that allows the camera to move to keep a subject in the frame.

The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, a Gorilla Glass 6 and aluminium body, and a massive 5,000mAh battery. There’s also a 3.5mm audio jack.

For software, ASUS says it has killed most of its own customisations to give users an ‘enhanced’ version of stock Android, which surely looks like and performs better as compared to previous generations. The company has also included a ‘smart key’ that by default works for Google Assistant, but can be reconfigured to activate do not disturb mode, take a screen shot, open the camera, etc.
