Asus 6z specifications
The Asus 6z is primarily known for its Flip Camera module that helps Asus eliminate the display notch. There’s a 48-megapixel primary camera with the Sony IMX586 sensor and a secondary 13-megapixel wide-angle camera to care of the imaging duties. When required, the Flip module lets the user utilise the rear cameras for selfies and video calls. Therefore, you can take selfies with a highly capable 48-megapixel camera. The module uses a Stepper motor that can change angles at a minimum of 2 degrees.
DxOMark has awarded the Asus 6z a very high score of 96 for selfie camera performance. User can also manually adjust the Flip Camera angles manually. Asus has even opened up the Camera2 API, which allows users to use the GCam mod. Do note that the phone doesn’t have OIS assistance and only relies on EIS. The Flip Camera module uses Liquid Metal to ensure the durability of the module. Asus has also built safety mechanisms – the module goes in when it detects a drop.
The Flip Camera makes for a notch-less narrow-bezel display with a slim chin. The phone sports a 6.3-inch IPS LCD panel with Full HD+ resolution. There’s a capacitive fingerprint sensor at the back. Like all 2019 flagships, the phone is equipped with a Snapdragon 855 chipset that comes with a choice or 6GB or 8GB RAM and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB storage.
