Asus is here with the launch of its latest flagship phone Zenfone 6 that packs some really interesting features one would want in a smartphone.
Asus Zenfone 6 sports a 6.46-inches Full-screen HD+ LCD display with narrow bezels and 92% screen-to-body ratio and no notch design.
It is powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage expandable via a microSD up to 1TB.
On the camera part, there is no front camera like you must have expected but it has an incredible dual rear flip camera of a 48MP sensor (Sony IMX 586) and an ultra-wide 13MP sensor that also act as the front camera.
The Flip Camera can take the same high-quality photos whether shooting from the front or rear with the flip mechanism in a 90-degree position.
The rotation mechanism can be used to shoot panoramas automatically or use motion tracking to keep your subject in the frame. Asus also developed HDR+ Enhanced and Night Mode, which rely on multi-frame synthesis to improve image quality.
The flip-up camera closes automatically if you drop the phone, and the company said that it has tested it with up to 100,000 flips so there’s no cause for alarm.
Asus Zenfone 6 has a massive 5,000mAh battery capacity with QuickCharge 4.0 in which Asus said it has up to two-days battery life in normal usage, although it comes with 18W charger.
