Its been a busy week so far, we have seen OnePlus launching their flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 7 Pro along with OnePlus 7, and then another China based smartphone maker Realme, the sub brand of Oppo has launched their latest smartphone, the RealMe X, and one thing which is common among these devices is that they comes without any notch, and instead they have full edge to edge display screen, and now Asus has also launched their latest flagship smartphone of the year, the Asus Zenfone 6 which again comes with full view display, but there is not pop-up camera which we have seen on other two devices.
Instead of going with the pop-up camera which we have seen on Vivo, Oppo RealMe and now on OnePlus, Asus has decided to go with a new way to which they are calling as a ‘Flip Camera’.

The interesting part is that there is no front facing camera and instead, this rear camera flips and will work as front facing camera, means you will get a 48MP front facing camera as well.
