All this complemented by a rear fingerprint sensor and a renewed user interface ZenUI 6 that comes with greater fluidity and speed and details as a new color palette for dark mode.
But if the Asus Zenfone 6 stands out for something different, then, of course, it is only because of the rotating flip camera, which simply makes the device to achieve its own segment in the smartphone market.
Dual Flip Camera
The great feature of the Asus Zenfone 6 is its double flip camera which can be used both as the rear and front camera. Basically, this innovative feature of the Zenfone 6 simply allows to use the entire front screen of the smartphone and as well as boast a front camera of the same quality as the back camera.
It is basically made of liquid metal and, it is accompanied by a G-sensor that simply detects a fall and simply protects the camera by transforming it into a safe position. And the most interesting thing is that to prove its reliability this system has been tested 100,000 times.
The rotating dual flip camera module is made of a Sony IMX586 main sensor of 48MP and a secondary camera of 13MP. The camera simply uses Quad Bayer technology to improve the quality of photography both in day and night and is supported by a 2×1 OCL PDAF autofocus system.
And not only that eve it is capable of recording videos in 4K at 60fps, and this dual flip camera is driven by a specific precision motor that simply helps it to rotate the module at a 180-degree angle to change the cameras from back to front.
Even it can also be used in any intermediate position as well, which simply gives the users the possibility to take professional-quality photos from any angle, as we can simply do so by adjusting the position of the camera using the smartphone software.
