Rotating camera ‘Flip’ marks its charisma

Asus Zenfone 7

Asus has decided to repeat with the rotating camera that we already saw in the Asus Zenfone 6, a camera that allows the brand to increase the use of the front and, incidentally, unify the rear and front cameras since the module can be moved to any position. In fact, it is such that since the camera application takes advantage of the movement of the motor to include exclusive functions, such as the Object tracking during video recording or automated panorama mode.

The aforementioned photographic module includes a triple camera with a 64 megapixel sensor as the main exponent. This sensor is accompanied by a 12-megapixel wide-angle and an 8-megapixel 3x telephoto. There are no differences between models at the level of size of the images, yes in a key aspect: the Asus Zenfone 7 Pro has Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) in the main camera and also in the telephoto. The ‘basic’ model runs out of that feature.

Asus Zenfone 7

The camera application offers a large number of functions, such as Artificial Intelligence for the automatic selection of scene settings, portrait mode, night mode and professional settings, among many other features. And it offers protection to the motorized module: the mobile is capable of hiding it in tenths of a second if it detects a fall.

The most powerful of Qualcomm and a ‘premium’ design

Asus Zenfone 7

Asus has always been known for taking advantage of the front face of its mobiles to make the experience with the screen magnify. And with the Asus Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro this premise is maintained: both offer a cutout free OLED panel coupled with minimal bezels. No curved screen on the edges, which surely many appreciate.

6.67 inches, HDR10, 20: 0 aspect ratio, FHD + resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate, both models share these characteristics. Where they differ is in the memory versions: the Asus Zenfone 7 starts from 6 GB of RAM, the Zenfone 7 Pro stays at 8 GB. In terms of storage, the base mobile bets on 128 GB and the Pro for double, 256 GB. Both RAM and storage are high speed: DDR5 and UFS 3.1 on both.

Asus Zenfone 7

The Asus Zenfone 7 battery amounts to 5,000 mAh, a more than decent figure for a mobile in its category; and that it should give them a more than comfortable day of use. Furthermore, Asus equips its suckers with 30W fast charge.

The materials chosen for the construction are of high quality and are in the line of ‘premium’ mobiles: aluminum frame and double-sided glass. They are large mobiles and also somewhat heavy: both models weigh 230 grams each.

Asus Zenfone 7

Asus ships both phones with their Zen UI 7 layer and updated to Android 10. Both offer USB C, stereo sound and fingerprint reader on the right side, above the power button.
