Asus recently announced the successor of Asus Zenfone 5Z in India dubbed Asus 6Z at a very competitive price. As the Delhi HQ ordered, Asus has to remove the Zenfone branding from all of their products they are selling in the Indian market. Asus 6Z will take on the OnePlus 7 and upcoming Redmi K20 Pro.
Asus 6Z Specifications
Asus Zenfone 6 sports notchless 6.4-inch edge-to-edge display with the Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The display has a 19.5:9 aspect ration and offers 92% screen-to-body ratio. That means you will still get a very small chin. But folks, don’t be sad, it has an IPS LCD display rather than OLED.
Asus has this time added a new third key to the phone which is called Smart Key. With this key user can trigger Google Assistant. Not only that, they can change the action as well with the new designed ZenUI.
The phone packs mighty Snapdragon 855 chipset and Adreno 640 GPU. There will be different options for RAM and internal storage. Also, considering the storage it is UFS 2.1. To power up everything the company has installed 5000 mAh battery with Quick charge 4.0. However, it comes with the 18W charger in the box.
Sliding Camera is Cherry on Top
Asus has gone for the sliding camera set up to get the Edge to Edge display without any notch. So the rear camera on the device will also work as the selfie camera so that you can take same high-resolution selfies with the rear camera. The module can be set on any angle required in between 0 to 180-degrees. The angle can be set using volume key as well as a soft button from the screen.
The module fits 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with 13MP Wide-Angle sensor with LED flash. The company has also revealed results of a lab test during its official launch. The camera module can survive until the 100000 flips. That makes 28 flips every day for 5 years. However, we cannot depend on this. Real-world usage will prove it. As we have in case of Samsung Galaxy Fold.
