Asus has started seeding its latest Zenfone 5Z smartphone with a new update that brings a host of interesting features. The new update will be rolled out in batches, meaning that it will reach limited users at a time.
In order to check for the latest update, users can go to Settings > System and check if the new firmware is available. With this new update, the company has a lift to face unlock feature. Through this, the phone’s screen will be switched on automatically, whenever you raise the phone to unlock it using face recognition feature. Further, the brand has added some new camera functionalities.
To start with, the update brings the support for auto anti-flicker feature, which will automatically detect electricity frequency based on lighting condition and tweak the settings accordingly, so that users don’t feel the flickering issue. The latest update also brings the support for Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) in Full HD video recording at 60fps and 18:9 recording at 30fps. It also adds support for auto switch between EIS and OIS (optical image stabilisation) during video recording. Apart from this, users get support to overheat detection in video recording, 3-dimensional noise reduction and improved manual white balance in Pro mode and selfie camera improvements.
Previously, the brand rolled out a new update that brings gesture controls for navigations on the Asus Zenfone 5Z. With this, users will now be able to perform gesture controls for navigating around the user interface. One can swipe from the centre to go to home screen, swipe left or right to go back and more.
A previous update to the device earlier this month included enhancements in camera performance, improvement of WiFi stability and other bug fixes to the ZenFone 5Z. The update brought RAW file support, panorama feature, on/off button for EIS, flash feature in Pro mode and real-time filters.
