Asus Zenfone 6 has comfortably set a new benchmark for how the cameras in a smartphone could be handled. While everyone is busy using sliding cameras and punch-hole displays, Asus has gone the road not taken. They have incorporated a powerful, dual lens camera which will be used as both the front and the rear facing camera.
The advantages are many because your selfies will no longer look out of place. The quality of images captured using the camera will be exactly the same. Be it a selfie or a proper group photograph captured by another person, it will produce deep pictures with some great bokeh effect or make use of the wide angle lens.
The company Asus officially announced the Zenfone 6 and the phone priced at 499 euros offer great value for money. Buyers get flagship quality performance, build quality and an all-display front for those who are really annoyed by the practice of using notches.
In terms of hardware specifications, the phone wouldn’t fail to impress most people. It has a large 6.4-inch display with an IPS screen. Under the hood, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with 6 GB of RAM while you can always opt to push it even further with the 8 GB RAM variant. The basic storage will be just 64 GB whereas there are additional variants with 128 GB or 256 GB of space for those who wouldn’t want to settle for less.
In the camera department, the Zenfone 6 has a 48-megapixel primary camera powered by Sony IMX586 sensor combined with a 13 megapixel wide-angle camera to cover wide shots and panoramic shots. It has a large 5,000mAh battery that should last an entire day and even another for moderate users.
The Asus Zenfone 6 uses Quick Charge 4.0 technology and runs on Android Pie 9.0 OS out of the box. The flip-design camera is the primary selling point of the phone which will face the rear side by default. If you need to take selfies, you can pull it up and rotate it to face the display. It uses liquid metal technology to make it very durable and can also support free angle control.
The phone surprisingly has managed to provide the audio jack for users. Google brought it back with Pixel 3a and it won’t be a shocker if many other manufacturers decide to follow it so as to appease the majority of buyers. The highest variant of the phone will cost 599 euros.
