Asus launches Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro with triple rotating camera | Cell phone

THE Asus launched the new Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro this Wednesday (26). Successors to the Zenfone 6, cell phones reach consumers with a 64 megapixel triple rotating camera, a screen with almost nonexistent borders and an advanced technical file, with up to 8 GB RAM. Sales of the new smartphones start today in Taiwan.

The screen of the new generation is larger, 6.67 inches, and occupies 92% of the front. With Full HD + resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels), the AMOLED display brings other improvements over the predecessor, such as the refresh rate of 90 Hz and the touch sampling rate of 200 Hz. The panel is also HDR10 + certified and Gorilla glass Glass 6.

The new phones still feature Gorilla Glass 3 on the back and aluminum finish on the side, but have no IP certification and dedicated headphone jack (3.5mm). Smartphones are available in the following color options: Aurora Black (black) and Pastel White (white).

The flip camera remains on the Zenfone 7 line, and with improvements. In addition to the engine, which, according to the manufacturer, is now capable of opening and closing 200 thousand times, twice the previous generation, the new photographic set has three sensors, instead of two, to be used both at the front, for selfies, as well as on the back.

The main camera features the Sony IMX686 sensor with 64 megapixels and f / 1.8 aperture, and is accompanied by the Sony IMX363 12 MP (ultrawide) and another sensor with 8 MP resolution (telephoto). The Zenfone 7 Pro also features optical image stabilization (OIS) in the primary and telephoto lens cameras.

The main difference between Asus phones is found in the technical data sheet. In the case of Zenfone 7, the smartphone features the Snapdragon 865 processor, options with 6 GB or 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The Pro model packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ chip, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of space.

In common, the duo has a battery with a capacity of 5,000 mAh. According to Asus, the component can complete 60% of the charge in less than 35 minutes with the 30-watt charger that comes with the cell phone, in the box. In addition, both reach the consumer with Android 10 (ZenUI 7) from the factory.
