The phone features 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage as well as a large 6,000mAh battery. Two USB-C ports are quite a unique feature and allow you to charge the phone and attach accessories at the same time.

On the camera side of things the Asus offers a dual-cam setup with a super-wide-angle. the main camera comes with a 26mm equivalent focal length and uses an 48MP 1/2" Sony sensor behind a lens with an F1.8 aperture. A combined PDAF/laser AF system is on board as well. The super-wide's equivalent focal length is 11mm and the lens has an F2.4 aperture. In video mode the Asus can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second and up to 480 fps slow-motion at 720p resolution.
