Asus has launched its next flagship smartphone Asus ZenFone 6 which is set to be a successor to the company’s last year flagship ZenFone 5Z. Asus has launched this smartphone in a launch event held in Spain.
This is the first smartphone from the company to have a rotating flip camera module to offer a bezel less display. It seems like Asus is following Samsungs design, first flip camera we have seen in Samsung Glaxy A80 last month. However moving towards the main highlight of the Asus ZenFone 6 is obviously the dual flip camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and a huge 5,000mAh battery.
At the time of presenting the flip camera the Asus said that the user can control the amount of rotation of the camera module of Asus ZenFone 6, so the user can stop the rotation midway and take some pictures at interesting angles. The brand has also added protection to its camera module which automatically reacts the camera to its base position when found any sudden action or any movement. A similar type of protection we have seen in OnePlus 7 Pro which was launched few days back.
