Asus ZenFone 6 is official with a dual flip camera and a 6.4" notchless displayAsus is currently presenting the ZenFone 6. The device is based on a Snapdragon 855 chipset paired to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB of UFA 2.1 storage. Some of the connectivity options of the m6GB/odel include dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 ac with 2x2 MIMO, Wi-Fi Direct, NFC, Bluetooth 5. ZenFone 6 packs a 5000 mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 support. It should provide up to 26 days of 4G standby, up to 21h of web browsing, up to 33 hours in 3G talk time, up to 2 days of non-stop use.

The Asus ZenFone 6 features a dual rear camera setup on the back. The main shooter is equipped with a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with an f/1.79 aperture and latest generation PDAF. The second camera is a 13MP ultra-wide camera. Both shooters work together to make one photo. They shoot simultaneously from different angles to offer amazing detail. It offers advanced portrait mode features, HDR+ support, night and super night shooting mode.

The big surprise of the night is - no front camera. Asus has come up with a module that flips the dual rear module and turns it into a front one.

So, for the front camera, you get Pro Mode, Slow Motion videos, Time Lapse, Portrait Mode, HDR+. It can even shoot 4K videos at 60 fps with EIS.

The Volume button controls the flip angle and the Smart Key serves as a shutter - that's made for comfy one-hand operation. Auto Panorama mode is enabled as well. The camera housing has a liquid metal construction. It can survive 28 flips per day, every day for 5 years. That makes some 100,000 flips.
