The latest Asus flagship that has been teased on Flipkart for some time will finally debut in the country at an event in New Delhi. Just days ahead of the formal launch, Asus faced a court order that restrained the company to sell its Zen and ZenFone-branded products.

The Taiwanese company, however, managed to quickly respond to the verdict and decided to introduce the ZenFone 6 that debuted in Europe in mid-May as the Asus 6Z in the Indian market. Key highlights of the Asus 6Z include a motorised rotating camera module that transforms from the rear camera into the front camera, a full-HD+ display, and an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.

The Asus 6z will be available exclusively on Flipkart as the teasers suggest. Technically, the Asus 6z is expected to be the same ZenFone 6 launched globally. Hence, it will carry over all the features and highlights of the device from the international version. The Asus 6z is expected to made available in at least three variants, with the base version sporting at least 6GB RAM and 64GB storage.

The launch event will begin from 12:30 pm and Asus will stream it live on YouTube. You can watch it here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyyrNLDP7_A&feature=youtu.be)

Asus 6Z price in India (expected)

Asus 6Z price in India will be announced during the launch event later today. However, it is likely to be close to its European price that starts at EUR 499 (roughly Rs. 39,000) for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant. The 6GB RAM + 128GB storage version of the Asus phone retails at EUR 559 (roughly Rs. 43,600), whereas the top-end 8GB RAM + 256GB storage model is priced at EUR 599 (roughly Rs. 46,700).

Asus 6Z specifications

In terms of specifications, Asus’ new flagship comes hiding beneath the hood a powerful Snapdragon 855 SoC that has been built by Qualcomm using the latest 7nm architecture. The chipset has been paired with either 6/64, 6/128 or 8/256 GB variants of RAM and storage — further expandable by using a MicroSD card because of the presence of a dual sim+MicroSD card slot. 

The phone brings with it a 6.4-inch Full HD+ NanoEdge display with 600nits brightness. The display comes with no notch and has very minimal bezels and chin.

The device features a glass-metal sandwich design with 3d rear corning gorilla glass that also houses the Zenfone 6’s fingerprint scanner. And a dual camera setup housed on a flip mechanism that rotates to turn into the device’s selfie camera too. And the lenses on board this mechanism are IMX586 48-Megapixel f/1.79 lens paired with another 13-Megapixel 125-degree Wide angle, Laser AF assist shooter.  

The phone also gets a customisable smart key as well as a dual 5-magnet stereo speaker with dual NxP smartamps and dual mic along with 3.5mm headphone jack. Powering the whole package is a massive 5000mAh battery that brings with it support for QuickCharge 4.0 backed 18W charging.
