ASUS Zenfone 6 (2019) Selfie Camera receives highest DXOMark Score

The brand-new Asus ZenFone 6 is the Taiwanese manufacturer’s latest flagship smartphone and comes with an unusual camera concept: instead of two camera modules—one on the front and another on the back—the ZenFone 6 features a single module that can rotate to point outward or toward the photographer.

This eliminates the requirement for a “camera notch” in the display, but also means that the same camera hardware can be used to capture standard pictures and self-portraits. In the case of the ZenFone 6, this hardware consists of a primary camera with a large 1/2″ Quad-Bayer sensor that outputs 12Mp images and a secondary ultra-wide angle with an 11mm equivalent focal length. (Note that our test protocol does not currently covered the latter, however.) The ZenFone 6 modifies its imaging parameters depending on which direction the camera is pointed.

To find out what kind of image results the Asus ZenFone 6 camera is capable of producing in selfie mode, read our full report below.

Key front camera specifications:

  • Rotating dual-camera
  • Primary 48Mp Sony IMX586 1/2″ sensor, f/1.8-aperture lens with 26mm-equivalent focal length
  • Ultra-wide: 13Mp sensor, f/2.4-aperture lens with 11mm-equivalent focal length
  • PDAF and laser autofocus on primary camera
  • 2160p video at 30 frames per second (4K)
  • Dual-LED flash
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset

Front camera champion

The device’s clever rotating design means that the ZenFone 6 can use a much larger image sensor in its primary camera for selfie images than most dedicated front cameras. Add a well-tuned autofocus system, a dual-LED flash, and an excellent camera software implementation into the mix, and it is no surprise Asus’s new flagship achieves excellent results for detail, noise, color, and several other tests, making it the new number one in our DxOMark Selfie ranking. It’s on par with the very best rivals for still images—but this said, while not perfect, it is in a league of its own for video, making it the current best option for mobile video creators recording selfie footage.
