Photographers Will Flip For This One Neat Trick?

ASUS have come up with a unique solution to the physical limitations of a smartphone which make it difficult to include a high quality camera on these devices.  The Flip Camera on the top of the ZenFone 6 is motorized and contains two separate cameras; a 48MP Sony IMX586 main camera and a 13MP 125° ultrawide secondary camera.  The motors on the Flip Camera are also able to flip the module by up to 180° so you can rotate from front to back or stop anywhere in between.

The ZenFone 6 has a 6.4″, 2340x1080 display with a NanoEdge slim-bezel display thin enough that the phones is 92% screen.  The 600nit Corning Gorilla Glass 6 display meets 100% DCI-P3 or 96% NTSC color gamut ratings, which is necessary to show off the pictures you take.  Inside is a 2.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 855 and an Adreno 640 GPU and depending on the model either 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of local storage.
