As befits a special edition, ZenFone 6 Edition 30 has been specially upgraded with 12GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage for a faster and smoother experience.
Unique Flip Camera
ZenFone 6 Edition 30 comes with the groundbreaking Flip Camera, a motorized flip-up dual-camera module that serves as both front and rear cameras. This innovative solution means that there is no need for a camera notch to mar the display, and also means that Flip Camera offers the same high-resolution photos and shooting capabilities whether it’s used as a front camera or a rear one.
As an indication of its unrivaled selfie capabilities, the Flip Camera in ZenFone 6 — which is identical to the Flip Camera in ZenFone 6 Edition 30 — achieved a total score of 98 in the DxOMark Selfie benchmark. This is currently the highest overall score recorded, with a selfie photo score of 101 and a selfie video score of 93. The DxOMark test report commented that selfie photos taken with Flip Camera deliver fine details with efficient noise reduction, pleasant color and skin tones rendering, accurate autofocus, and accurate target exposure in photo. Selfie videos were noted to show great detail, good control of the noise on the face and in the background, both in indoor and outdoor conditions, with great colors and efficient stabilization.
The main camera of ZenFone 6 Edition 30 boasts the latest Sony IMX586 48MP sensor with an f/1.79 wide aperture lens and Quad Bayer technology for incredible day and night photography. The 2×1 OCL PDAF autofocus system provides the best focus and anti‑shake performance, and the 13MP 125° ultrawide secondary camera lets users fit more friends and scenery in the shot, with real-time distortion correction.
The Flip Camera module is made of liquid metal (amorphous alloy), a highly advanced material that’s 20% lighter than stainless steel, but with four times the strength. For added protection, a G‑sensor in the module detects the rate of acceleration, allowing Flip Camera to automatically return the module to a safe position if the phone is dropped.
A custom precision stepper motor smoothly rotates the camera module by up to a full 180° between front and rear camera positions. In the unique Free Angle mode, Flip Camera can be positioned at any angle, giving users the freedom to frame their subjects from high or low angles without having to contort themselves into awkward or uncomfortable shooting positions. There are several other unique shooting modes available, including Auto Panorama for assisted panoramic shots, and Motion Tracking for automatic subject-tracking when recording videos. The new HDR+ Enhanced and Super Night modes provide the best day and night photography experience.
Boundless viewing experience
For a truly immersive near-borderless viewing experience, ZenFone 6 Edition 30 is equipped with a 6.4‑inch all‑screen NanoEdge slim-bezel display that has an incredible 92% screen‑to‑body ratio. The notchless design — made possible by the unique Flip Camera — makes any visual task more enjoyable, whether it’s browsing the web, messaging friends or watching movies. A cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 color gamut ensures rich, lifelike colors and up to 600nits brightness makes it easy to read what’s onscreen, even when outdoors. The display is covered by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 6 for unmatched scratch resistance and drop protection. Gorilla Glass 6 is tested to withstand multiple drops from a meter in height, ensuring ZenFone 6 Edition 30 can easily survive accidental knocks and drops.
