Asus ZenFone 6/6Z slow motion video issue to be addressed with future OTA update, says forum mod

Modern smartphone cameras grow increasingly more capable with each new iteration. These improvements come in the form of new algorithms, better color science, and new advanced features.

HDR capabilities and slow-motion video are just a few of these features that are becoming commonplace for many new smartphones with top-tier units packing even more features.

Asus ZenFone 6

The Zenfone 6 is a pretty capable device, even today. The device launched back in 2019 with flagship specs for the time and still supports many of the features you’d expect from a flagship.

However, it is coming to light that there is an issue with the Zenfone 6 with regards to the slow-motion video feature of the device.

Asus Zenfone 6 Slow-motion issue

According to users, the Zenfone 6/6Z has an issue previewing slow-motion content using either the stock gallery app and Google photos, following the update to Android 11.

Affected users note that the resulting video turns out choppy and sluggish as though it has a bunch of dropped frames.

I captured video on 480fps after that i went to gallery to play it, It plays like a fps drop video, after i save(trim) the particular part with slow mo via exporting method ( like there is an option for particular part of the video plays in slow of 480fps by save option at right side top corner) after exporting the video plays smoothly without any fps drop.

Interestingly, in-camera preview is reportedly working flawlessly. This issue has since been brought to the attention of Asus on the company’s community forum by a bunch of affected users.

As a result, Asus, through a community forum moderator, has acknowledged this issue and forwarded it to the relevant parties, while assuring affected users of a fix in an upcoming update.

fixed in a future OTA

See, Asus has a pretty good track record when it comes to addressing user complaints and fixing bugs in its devices’ firmware.

However, the company needs to pull up its socks when it comes to rolling out new versions of Android to its existing devices.
