  • Asus ZenFone 6 launched: First look at the futuristic Flip Camera Smartphone

ASUS IS TAKING another stab at the smartphone market with the Zenfone 6, which has its sights set firmly on the OnePlus 7 Pro. The phone comes with either 6GB RAM or 8GB RAM plus 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. Asus has packed in the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor which makes it on par with OnePlus' processor. Oh, and there are dual cameras on the back, too.

However, that is where the differences end. "ASUS ZenFone 6 is created to Defy Ordinary without compromise".

"Cameras - 48MP image sensor - 1/2.0" large sensor size (Sony® IMX586), Quad Bayer technology - 12MP, F1.79 aperture, 79° field of view, Laser autofocus, Dual LED flash.

The tweet confirms that the company's upcoming flagship Zenfone 6 will feature a 5,000 mAh battery capacity. For selfies, the 180° flip mechanism pull the rear camera forward so it can be used as a selfie camera. The Snapdragon 855 makes it a premium flagship phone.

ASUS describes the Flip Camera as being driven a miniature high-precision stepper motor with many tiny gears that provide smooth and price flipping.

The Flip Camera design clearly brings with it some advantages for photography, though it also benefits the ZenFone 6's design.

The phone has the notch and hole punch, instead of the pop-up camera that flips from the back. With 92% screen-to-body ratio, it gets as edge-to-edge as possible. Interestingly, Asus is also allowing the ZenFone 6 users to control the amount of rotation, so the users can stop the rotation midway to take photos at interesting angles. For durability, the display also uses a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

Never mind how good Asus' hardware has been in the past; the company's handsets have been repeatedly let down by its software.

OS/Software: Android 9.0 Pie, ZenUI 6.

Be cautious about Lyme disease: Ministry
Symptoms of the infectious disease can include fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, fatigue and a circular, bull's eye rash. After care: Check yourself, your children and pets for ticks right after possible exposure to ticks, shower when you get home.


The whole flippable module is wrapped in what ASUS calls "liquid metal", mainly for its improved lightness and toughness compared to, say, stainless steel.

What do you think of the ZenFone 6? Zenfone 6 is no different int that sense.

ASUS chose to throw in a generous 5,000mAh battery here, while most other phones tend to top out at 4,000mAh. That even overshadows the 4,200-mAh battery in the Huawei P30 Pro.

Here's hoping the company manages to accomplish their "intention" of delivering ZenUI 6 to older ZenFone devices, so that users don't have to wait for long.

Both color variants are not unusual in shade from anything we've seen so far in the past year but the Twilight Silver is hard to catch properly on camera. More images followed the next month but it was only this year we heard anything related again.

There is no IP rating as of now, but Asus claims that the smartphone has some degree of water resistance.

The starting price is around 499 euros. It's a 48-megapixel chip now flooding into new phones at a pace.

The Zenfone 6 audio - it has dual stereo speakers with dual NXP TFA9874 smart amplifiers, a DTS 7.1 virtual surround sound for headphone support, FM radio and more.
