The biggest change with the Asus Zenfone 6 is its rear camera. Rather than placing a selfie camera permanently in front or a pop-up selfie shooter, as we just OnePlus 7 ProAsus found out a mechanism that lowered the back camera around the front. This will enable you to take selfies of the same quality as you would use the two rear cameras of the device.
This mechanism also allows the front of the Zenfone 6 to be almost all screens – a 92 percent screen-body ratio.
In addition, the Asus Zenfone 6 specification sheet is also quite decent. Check it out in the table below.

These specifications paint the picture of a flagship of 2019 with a few key angles to keep the price low. For example, there is no wireless download, no IP rating, and no fingerprint sensor in the display (the Zenfone 6 has a fingerprint sensor).
However, Asus did not put much on the inside. There is the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor linked to the Adreno 640 GPU. There are 8 GB of RAM as well as 256 GB of internal storage (expandable with the microSD slot). There is also a dual SIM slide – a must for people who travel regularly.
However, one of the striking features of the Zenfone 6 is its enormous battery, with a powerful 5,000mAh capacity. This is 1000mAh more than just announced OnePlus 7 Pro, and 900mAh more than that Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
The starting price of the Asus Zenfone 6 is $ 499, which gets you the variant with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It's not a bad price to pay for a no-carpet device, the latest top-tier processor, a ginormous battery and an innovative flip camera.
