Over the past couple of years, smartphone cameras have evolved at an impressive pace that shows no signs of slowing down for the moment. Smartphone manufacturers are coming up with some unique camera solutions for their flagship devices, but the trend is not limited to the primary camera.

Manufacturers are also trying to achieve the true full-screen display so they are moving around the front camera to get the desired result. Some are using dot-notch or punch-holes to place the front camera whereas others have relied on motorised mechanisms to hide it. We are listing five smartphones which carry a unique camera setup either on the back or at the front.

Asus 6Z: Price starts at Rs 31,999

Asus 6Z (Zenfone 6) is the latest flagship offering from Asus which carry a one of its kind flip camera setup. The Asus 6Z does not require different rear and front cameras as the motorised flip camera mechanism rotates the rear camera by 180 degrees to make it act as the front camera.
