Zenfone 6 is one of the most amazing phones released this year. This phone not only packs the flagship product specifications at an affordable price but also has a brand new user interface, which has been well received by critics.
ASUS ZenFone 6
Zenfone 6 is available for purchase in Europe and Taiwan and may be available in India later this month. However, Asus is currently processing litigation.
The Delhi High Court ruled that ASUS could not sell or use the Zenfone brand in India because it belongs to Telecare Network India Pvt Ltd., an Indian company that sells feature phones and entry-level smartphones.
Although Asus has appealed this decision, it does not seem to be waiting for a new ruling, so it was decided to rename the phone. Flipkart’s new promotion page – its partner reseller, shows that Zenfone 6 will now be launched as the Asus 6z. It also revealed that the phone will be announced on June 19.
In addition to the name change, the Asus 6z is identical to Zenfone 6 sold in other markets. It comes with a 6.4-inch NanoEdge display and is protected with Gorilla Glass 6 with a set-top box ratio of 92%. There is a Snapdragon 855 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
The ASUS 6z is equipped with a Sony IMX586 48MP main rear camera with a 13MP super wide-angle secondary camera. Thanks to the electric design, the rear camera can also double as a front camera. It is currently the phone with the highest self-timer camera score on the DxOMark camera list.
The camera app packs a lot of features such as Super Night Mode, motion tracking video, 480fps slo-mo recording, HDR+, 180° horizontal and vertical panorama and lots more.
The ASUS 6z runs ZenUI 6 based on Android 9 Pie which has a near stock UI with tons of useful features including a system-wide dark mode. ASUS has also promised it will be updated to Android Q and Android R. Another selling point of the phone is its massive 5000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0 which should last up to 2 days on a single charge. It also has a 3.5mm audio jack and a dedicated MicroSD card slot.
