Asus recently launched the Zenfone 6 flagship with flip camera as big highlighting feature. Less than two weeks after the official launch, the Asus Zenfone 6 has got its first software update with camera improvements. The over-the-air (OTA) update version 16.1210.1904.115 has started shipping for the Asus Zenfone 6 with Super Night Mode, HDR+ Enhanced modes and more.
The company has posted update rollout information and changelog on Asus’ ZenTalk community forum. The latest firmware version 16.1210.1904.115 will be shipped to Zenfone 6 carrying model number ZS630KL in a staged manner. So it’ll take some time to reach all Zenfone 6 users. In case you didn’t get the latest update OTA pushed for your Zenfone 6, then you can head over to Settings -> System -> System Updates to check it manually.
“Since the server pushes update notice to different serial numbers by batches, it may take some days for you to receive the FOTA notice,” noted Asus.
The Zenfone 6 update brings improvements like Super Night Mode and the HDR+ Enhanced mode (HDR++) to the flip/ motorized camera. The volume key controls have also been added to the camera app. Now you’ll be able to control the flip camera rotation; set the volume key as “Shutter, Zoom, Flip camera” in Asus Camera’s settings manually. Users will also be able to utilize smart key as shutter to take pictures in Camera mode. Additionally, camera rotation stability has been improved.
