ASUS has officially revealed its new latest flagship smartphone – the ASUS Zenfone 6 in Valencia, Spain.
The new ASUS Zenfone 6 features a full screen display by integrating a new flip camera mechanism. The rear camera has the capability to flip-up and point forward to use it as selfie camera. The module houses a 48MP Sony IMX586 with f/1.8 aperture and a 13MP 125° ultra-wide angle camera.
What’s cool about the camera module is that you can also control the flip angle camera by using the volume buttons and take a photo using the Smart Key. With its rotating mechanism, it can also be used to shoot panoramas automatically or use motion tracking to keep your subject in the frame.
The camera can record 4K videos at 60fps with electronic image stabilization, even in selfie mode. Asus also added HDR+ Enhanced and specially Night Mode.
In terms of the other specs, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, up to 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage, up to 8GB of RAM, and it has a dedicated microSD card slot along with the dual SIM cards.
ASUS also gives importance to the audio experience of its consumers. The Zenfone 6 has dual amplifiers and is Hi-Res Audio certified. Asus even bundled a pair of ZenEar headphones (also Hi-Res certified) that you can plug into the 3.5mm jack. And if you want to go wireless, you’ll enjoy quality aptX HD sound.
Powering the device is a huge 5,000 mAh battery just like the Zenfone Max series. It has an 18W fast charging technology but unfortunately there is no wireless charging.
