New update for Asus Zenfone 6 brings host of camera improvements

Asus has started rolling out an OTA update for the Zenfone 6, bringing a bunch of camera and system improvements to the 2019 flagship.

The update, carrying version number 16.1220.1906.167, is heavily focused on refining the phone’s already impressive camera.

The 180° rotatable camera is one of Zenfone 6’s unique features, and this update aims to stabilize the operation even further. The Retract camera button has been moved to the first page of the quick settings, making it more accessible.

The electronic image stabilization (EIS) has been optimized for improved video recording. The Supernight mode now has improved noise-reduction and color reproduction. And finally, the flip mechanism has been fixed in Panorama Mode.

Coming to system optimizations, power consumption has been more optimized, call quality has been improved, and overall stability should see a noticeable bump.
