Asus has introduced its high-end phone Zenfone 6 (review) with flagship-grade specs and a fancy flip camera module. The Zenfone 5Z (review) successor premiered in a press event in Spain. We have seen flip cameras on other phones before (and quite recently on Samsung Galaxy A80) but Asus’ implementation is unique and it’s backed by other technology to look forward to.

Asus Zenfone 6 Highlights

Let’s start with the glaring and garish aspect of the phone- Camera. A rotating flip-top module carries a 48MP main camera paired with a 13MP wide-angle camera. You could harness the same megapixels for front and rear shots and videos. Thanks to this, we get a 6.4-inch full HD+ IPS LCD display that is guarded by Gorilla Glass 6.

Diving deep under the suit, you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor that is aided by 6GB or 8GB RAM and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB UFS 2.1 storage. ZenUI 6 skinned Android 9 Pie is the OS on top of this hardware. A 5000mAH power source should last long with the support from an 18W Quick Charge 4.0 charger.

Some other convenient elements include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Google Assistant button or Smart Key (which can also be customized to launch other apps), dedicated micro-SD storage expansion up to 1TB and more.

Let’s see whether this mix marinates well to take on the crowded market including newly launched OnePlus 7 Pro (review) and upcoming OPPO Reno 10X Zoom.
