A few weeks after the launch of ROG Phone 3 ( here our review ), Asus officially removes the veils from the new flagship smartphones of the Zenfone line . We are obviously talking about Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro , two models that differ in some important characteristics and that will fit into a market segment that, this year more than ever, is populated by many interesting solutions even if none can have the uniqueness of the Flip Camera.
Asus Zenfone 7 Pro: An overview
A weight that grows due to the larger display, the 5000 mAh battery (the same as last year but still heavy), the optical stabilization systems of the cameras and the new drive motor of the Flip Camera which I will talk about shortly.
Ergonomics is not its strong point, there is no doubt, also because the glossy finish makes it quite slippery. Fortunately, in the package we find a cover that increases the grip substantially. The IPxx certification is missing, but let’s say that waterproofing the camera module with its movement is an almost impossible undertaking.
We were talking about the scooter that drives the Flip Camera. It has been updated, moved and of course upgraded. The module that contains the three optics now moves more smoothly and quickly, allowing for more precise control and longer duration of the mechanism.
In addition to a more powerful motor, a sensor has also been introduced that measures the angle of rotation of the camera and allows the system to understand if it has actually returned to the starting position in the correct way. Not only that, thanks to the introduction of this sensor it is now also possible to fix three predefined positions within the camera app and make it reach the preset position with just one click.
Asus Zenfone 7 Pro display review
Before giving you more details about the features of the three cameras of this Zenfone 7 Pro I want to talk about the new display. It is a 6.67-inch diagonal AMOLED with FHD + resolution and a refresh rate of 90Hz . I have said this on other occasions in the past: it is, in my view, the best combination of panel technology, resolution and refresh rate. In fact, it allows you to have a feeling of greater fluidity than classic displays while maintaining acceptable consumption.
Asus Zenfone 7 Pro camera review
There are three cameras inserted inside the rotating module this year, one more than Zenfone 6. The introduction of the 3x Zoom is not the only novelty, however. Compared to last year’s model, two of these three cameras also gain optical stabilization , which has made room for itself by moving the motor outside the rotating module.
The main sensor, what you need the standard lens, is 64 Megapixel. It is a Sony IMX686 with Quad Bayer technology and a lens with an f / 1.8 aperture. The optical stabilization is obviously always active and is helped when necessary by the electronic one. With this module it is also possible to shoot videos in 8K at 30 fps or in 4K up to 120 fps.
A little to the side of the main camera we find the wide-angle one with a 12-megapixel Sony IMX 363 sensor and a lens with a 113-degree viewing angle. In addition to automatic, real-time distortion correction, this camera also offers Dual PDAF.dive autofocus
The triptych of cameras closes with an 8 megapixel camera that offers an optical zoom lens with a 3x magnification factor . As for the 64-megapixel module, we also have optical stabilization here that allows you to take brighter and stiller photographs when the shooting conditions are not exactly optimal.
The main feature of this solution, however, lies in the fact that by rotating the three modules a front camera is not necessary because the same three that we use at the rear can also be used in selfie mode, with obviously better results than any other solution on the market and with the advantage not to have interruptions on the display such as notches or holes.
Asus Zenfone 7 Pro performance
Even if we look at the hardware and internal components, we notice how Asus has tried to include all the best technology available today in this Zenfone 7 Pro. The “engine” is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC (865 standard in Zenfone 7) accompanied by 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of storage on UFS 3.1 memories (on the base model they will be 8/128). Internal memory which, among other things, is expandable via MicroSD without giving up the dual SIM functionality thanks to a trolley with three separate slots.
The Snapdragon 865+ comes with an integrated 5G module and compatible with SA and NSA networks . In addition to this we have dual band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC and GPS with support for all the appropriate satellites. The USB-C supports video output and there is fast charging with the charger in the box capable of delivering up to 30W.
