The ASUS Zenfone 6 Camera Will Make You Flip

Asus Zen Fone 6 global launch at 11:30 pm today Where and how to watch the event live

For a start, ASUS had to design an entirely new stepper motor to finely control the motion of the flip. The dimensions of the new Asus phone are 159.1x75.11x8.1-9.1mm and it weighs 190 grams. The front panel features a bezel-less screen and there is no notch.

It's quite common to mention that Asus has had faced trouble breaking into the smartphone industry. The cam module looks robust yet light because of the liquid metal material used.

As usual, Asus spent a lot of time talking about the camera and the flip mechanism. Asus tested it with up to 100,000 flips, thats 28 selfies a day for 5 years. Being a notch-less display, there are no distractions while watching videos and playing games. This display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6. This lets you shoot from usual angles without losing your view of the preview image, and offers a new way to keep the camera still for night shots or classic family photo scenarios - just prop it up at 90 degree extension on a solid surface. So, for example, you can select the different sound mode with a single press, flashlight for double press and with press and hold, you can take a screenshot.

Just like Marcel Campos said during the keynote, zooming in will get you a photo that still retains clarity and detail. It's pretty convenient and provides better ergonomics while creating pictures from the Zenfone. In fact, in third-party apps like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat have been tuned to support free-angle shooting. And yes, there's a headphone jack.

You can also record 1080p Full HD video at 30 and 60fps or 720p HD video recording at 30fps.

ASUS says the ZenFone 6 addresses the four main problems in smartphones today. This is paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard, but if this isn't enough, separate variants with 128GB of storage or 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage will be available.

Under the hood the Snapdragon 855 chipset, making this a bona fide flagship.

The ZenFone 6 also has a rear-mounted fingerprint and two nice touches that are sorely lacking on most of this year's flagship phones so far. It comes with stereo speakers, dual NXP smart amplifiers, Hi-Res audio, and DTS:X Ultra support. This convenience also means that you don't need to precariously perch your phone on some object.

On the software front, ASUS is running Android 9 Pie, which is the latest version of Android right now. The company has promised that it will be updating the software to Android Q and Android R, whenever they come. As the UI is now closer to stock Android than ever, it should comparatively take lesser time for Asus to seed updates and bug fixes.

Now that we got that out of the way, how does the phone feel? The Snapdragon 855-powered device comes with 5,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 and reverse charge support. The back of the Asus Zenfone showcases a curved finish along with a dedicated fingerprint scanner below the camera.
