Taiwan’s tech company Asus today has launched its latest flagship smartphone Asus 6Z in the Indian market. The phone is in the spotlight due to its camera setup. According to the company, this is the first phone in which there is a dual rotating camera which works both front and rear cameras.
The Asus 6Z has 6.4 inches screen with FullHD resolution, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and with a 92% advantage of the front according to the manufacturer. Although it is called Nanoedge, it is a flat screen without curvatures on the sides, being these in the back as we have seen previously in some terminal of the brand and in most of the current Android flagships of the market.
It covers the 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and the brightness is 600 nits, and at the edges, we find an addition: the new Smart Key side button. Thus, ASUS joins the current initiated Samsung and Xiaomi among others to add one more button to the usual volume and on / lock dedicated to frequent tasks and the virtual assistant, in this case, Google Assistant, can set actions according to the type of pulsation. The phone has a 3.5 mm jack and double loudspeaker, as well as a dual microphone and that new button.
The main camera has Quad Bayer technology and the second one has a wide-angle lens, adding one of the photographic styles that are becoming popular in smartphones especially since last year. The Flip module is made of liquid metal, which according to ASUS is 20% lighter than stainless steel, but four times stronger.
In addition, it incorporates a G-sensor that detects the speed of acceleration, allowing the Flip Camera to automatically return to a safe position if the phone falls and thus adding a security system to prevent breakage in this case. There are also several shooting modes, being able to choose the angle (Free Angle mode) or follow objects automatically when recording videos (Motor Tracking), also incorporating a night mode (Super Night) and an enhanced HDR+.
The 180-degree motorized module allows the main camera, with a Sony IMX586 48-megapixel sensor and an aperture lens f /1.79, and the wide-angle camera, with a 13-megapixel sensor and 125-degree lens, they can be used both in the front and in the back.
Asus 6Z integrates Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with an option of up to 8 GB of RAM, thus being among the most powerful Android device in the market in terms of components. Along with this, the phone has a 5000mAh battery.
As for ZenUI 6, it is a new interface that promises to be simple for new users or those accustomed to ASUS software. Explains the manufacturer that is cleaner, more fluid and that comes with a new color palette that includes a dark mode, seeking to counteract visual fatigue.
A redesigned interface with super-fluid animations, designed to facilitate one-handed use thanks to commands and the layout of the apps, so that they are within the reach of the user’s thumb. We will have to see how it is, taking into account that we are talking about 6.4 inches, a diagonal that even without frames is great for those who have the smallest hands talking about the use with one hand.

- 6GB RAM + 64GB storage : Rs. 31,999
