Asus Zenfone 6 has now been launched globally at an event in Spain. The smartphone is the successor of the Taiwanese technology company’s 2018 flagship handset Zenfone 5Z. The newly-launched device is the first by the company to come with a rotating camera, which also means that the handset has an all display design. The smartphone also has a dual camera setup on its back panel, which flips to become a front facing snapper. We should mention that earlier this year, Samsung Galaxy A80 was also launched with rotating camera setup. However, compared to Samsung Galaxy A80, the implementation of a rotating camera on Asus Zenfone 6 is relatively simple.
The motorised dual-camera setup rotates vertically so that it faces the user of the handset to click a selfie. Asus has also said that it has added fall detection to the camera module so that it automatically retracts the camera to its base position when the handset detects a fall-like movement. Here are the price details and specifications of the Asus Zenfone 6 that you should know about:
