Asus showcases a motorized flip-up camera in the Asus ZenPhone 6


It’s been a trend where every smartphone maker wants to get rid of the notch in any possible way. In addition to the already existing pop-up cameras, punch designs and even rotating camera designs, Asus has now set a new trend with a flip-up camera. The camera is placed on the back of the device but flips up when a selfie is taken. Here’s a quick clip on the flip-up camera.
