Asus has just opened the eyes of people in such a way that, not only pop-up camera is the solution for a full-screen display; instead the companies could try something different as Asus did with the all-new flip camera mechanism. Asus Zenfone 6 is the first phone to come with a 48MP Sony IMX586 Front Facing Camera and a 13MP Wide Angled camera as well. The Zenfone 6 has been just launched, and as per Asus’s Track Record, the devices get better and better with the software updates, and hence it is important for the users to maintain a record, and today we will be doing the same.
The Asus Zenfone 6 comes with a 6.4inch Nano Edge Display, which is just a Full View Display, which is an FHD+ Display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The Phone is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Chipset and has a dual flip camera setup on the back. Yeah you heard it right, the Asus Zenfone 6 has a 48MP Sony IMX586 and a 13MP Wide-Angle Shooter, and there is no Selfie Camera on the front, instead what happens is the rear camera with the help of a motor turns and acts as a selfie camera. The Phone has a massive 5,000mAH battery. This is the high capacity battery ever seen on a flagship, a 3.5mm headphone jack and dual stereo speakers as well.
