Asus unveils its new Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro smartphones. The opportunity to rediscover the Flip Camera that the Taiwanese manufacturer introduced last year. Remember, the Zenfone 6 had a rotating camera that, when raised, reminded one of the Wall-E robot from the Disney-Pixar animated film of the same name.

The idea behind this Flip Camera was to deliver the same photo quality to selfies as to regular snapshots while allowing the screen to avoid the notch or punch. The Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro take this formula and refine it a bit. From the outset, we can see that the photo module in question now has three sensors, but this is not the only novelty to remember.

Before we go any further, note one thing already: in terms of design, the Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro are identical. The differences between the two versions are rather made on a few key points of the technical sheet. So, here we are dealing with two devices offering a display area that is neither punctured nor bitten by a notch. This does not prevent you from distinguishing a small black outline around the screen.

An Improved Flip Camera :

At the rear, the triple photo module protrudes slightly in relief when properly seated in a traditional position. If you have fun with this famous Flip Camera, then you will see the cuboid flip back and forth and vice versa.

The module in question also benefits from a more powerful motor which notably allows smoother movement. The user will thus be able to benefit from better precision when he wants to choose a particular angle of inclination-because as on the Zenfone 6 you can move the Flip Camera quite freely, this one not being limited to simple shots. classics and selfies.

Asus claims that you will be able to perform at least 200,000 “flips” with this module, which is equivalent to using it 100 times a day for more than 5 years. Beyond that, keep in mind that the Zenfone 7 and 7 Pro’s fingerprint reader is positioned on the side and also acts as an unlock button and “Smart Key”. This feature allows you to activate Google Assistant, launch an application or activate a setting with a double press or a long press. You can set all of this in the options.

The devices are unfortunately not IP68 certified for waterproofing. They don’t have a jack, but a USB-C port.
