Asus ZenFone 6 With Unique Flip-Camera, Snapdragon 855 Announced!

Asus has officially announced ZenFone 6. The Taiwanese computing giant on Thursday unveiled the new ZenFone 6 smartphone at a press event in Spain. Set to be a successor to the company’s last year’s flagship ZenFone 5Z, the Asus ZenFone 6 is the company’s first smartphone with a rotating camera. In an effort to reduce bezels and provide an all-screen front, the company has opted for a flipping camera. There is a dual camera setup in the phone, which normally resides on the back, but rotates when needed to become a selfie shooter. Asus seems to be following in the footsteps of Samsung, which had also launched a rotating camera smartphone in the form of Galaxy A80 last month.

The major highlight of the Zenfone 6 if the new flipping camera mechanism. The rear camera flips into the selfie camera with a touch of a button. The smartphone is loaded with a glass design, while the chassis is made of metal. The motorized dual-camera setup present on the back of the Asus ZenFone 6 simply rotates vertically to face the user of the phone. 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. The company has also added fall-protection for the camera module, which will automatically retract the camera to its base position if the phone detects sudden movement – similar to how the OnePlus 7 Pro’s pop-camera retracts. Asus ZenFone 6 sports a full-screen front covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and back featuring a 3D-curved glass. It isn’t a particularly attractive smartphone and looks like a giant slab of metal and glass.
