Asus ZenFone 6 officially announced

Asus has announced its latest flagship smartphone, the ZenFone 6 with a “groundbreaking” Flip Camera and notchless display.

The ZenFone 6 comes with a 6.4-inch notchless NanoEdge display that has a 92% screen-to-body ratio and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution. The display has a wide colour gamut (96%) 100 DCI-P3 and HDR10 support.

Powering the ZenFone 6 is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and the Adreno 640 GPU. There’s also 256GB of internal storage (and a microSD card slot up to 2TB) and up to 8GB of RAM.

The main emphasis of the ZenFone 6 has been put on the camera. The phone comes with a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 image sensor that uses Quad Bayer technology to scale photos down to 12-megapixels. There’s also a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens.

The cameras on the ZenFone 6 can record 4K UHD video at 30/60fps, 1080p video at 30/60fps and comes with 3-axis electronic image stabilization. There’s also support for Slow Motion video (1080p at 240fps, 720p at 480fps), Motion Tracking video (1080p FHD at 60fps).

Both the cameras are on a hinge that is motorized and will flip the camera by a full 180-degrees from rear to front and vice-versa. Because of this new design, that’s how Asus was able to produce a notchless display.

In terms of battery life, the ZenFone 6 has a massive 5,000 mAh battery that should easily last up to two days of non-stop usage.

There are a USB-C port, rear-facing fingerprint sensor and a headphone jack. The phone also comes with Android 9 Pie (with an Android Q update coming later) with ZenUI 6 on top and stereo front-facing speakers.

 

The Asus ZenFone 6 (ZS630KL) will be coming to Canada in September starting at $799 CAD.
