With Zenfone 6, Asus innovates in photography

Asus has unveiled a high-end smartphone with state-of-the-art equipment but with a very reasonable price. His particularity? The two photosensors on the back of the camera swing forward when you want to take a selfie.

Hide this camera that I can not see.” This seems to be the slogan of smartphone manufacturers looking for a few months to hide the photosensor on the front, the one used to take selfies. The goal? Provide maximum space for display. At OnePlus, the sensor is now hidden in the slot of OnePlus 7 Pro. At Samsung, it is rotating as we have seen on the Galaxy A80.

Today, Asus is unveiling its method to hide the sensor with a system almost similar to that of Samsung. The sensor, located on the back of the ZenFone 6, tilts forward. So we can enjoy a dual sensor 48 and 13 megapixels for selfies and Asus has used Sony for optics.

Hard to find cheaper with such equipment

With, among other things, this innovation made possible by a small motorized mechanism, this smartphone comes directly placed among the best in its sector, that is to say the OnePlus 7 or the iPhone XR, with a high-end configuration including a 6.4-inch screen without edges, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, between 6 and 8 GB of RAM and between 64 and 256 GB of storage memory. All with a very comfortable battery of 5,000 mAh.

On paper, there is nothing wrong with this Android smartphone, especially since the price is very reasonable with an entry fee of 499 euros, and 599 euros for the most expensive model. Hard to find better at this price since Asus offers 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB for storage.
