ASUS ZenFone 5Z, the flagship model of the smartphone family, presented by the brand at MWC 2018, is receiving a new software update that introduces a series of improvements for the camera.
ASUS ZenFone 5Z boasts a Snapdragon 845 octa-core up to 2.8 GHz with Adreno 630 GPU, and the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon X20 Gigabit LTE modem that brings with it 2 × 2 Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 5.0. The artificial intelligence in ASUS ZenFone 5Z involves an aspect that is as important as it is underestimated: the process of charging the battery. Thanks to AI Charging, ASUS ZenFone 5Z can learn the time when we wake up more frequently to maintain a charge rate close to 80% during the night and then reach 100% in the vicinity of our awakening. What is it for? To preserve the integrity of the battery as long as possible, otherwise worn out by our bad habits.
ASUS started the rollout of this update that brings some new features for the ZenFone 5Z photographic sector. Among the new features introduced, it is worth mentioning first of all the option to save images in RAW format, Panorama shooting mode and the possibility to activate and deactivate EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization).
