The Taiwanese giant Asus already confirmed the launch of new ZenFone 6 lineup phones on May 16th. From what we heard so far the company will debut three new phones under the ZenFone 6 series including ZenFone 6, ZenFone 6Z and ZenFone 6 Lite. Today we have the new case renders of ZenFone 6 which reveals the design in full glory ahead of the official announcement.
Unlike the latest smartphones, it comes with slightly different cameras setup on the rear side. The rear is gently curved from the edges so that the device can be grabbed single-handed easily. The dual rear cameras are aligned horizontally at the top center with dual LED flashlight between the sensors.
Below the dual cameras, it features a squarish fingerprint scanner. Another important aspect is it has a large cutout at the top bezel which indicates the ZenFone 6 could have pop-up selfie camera setup. The left edge lacks the traditional physical buttons whereas the right edge has three cuouts. The center and bottom cutouts are for volume controls and power button respectively but the first cutout at the top is a mystery.
The front-facing side of the render features the recently announced ZenFone Max M2 design, the ZenFone 6 is expected with the bezel-less design with pop-up selfie snapper.
The bottom edge has the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack and USB-C port for connectivity and charging. At the moment it is still in the dark whether the aforementioned renders showcase the standard ZenFone 6 design or the premium ZenFone 6Z. Last year we had seen the similar rear design of both ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Z. So the chances are high the ZenFone 6 and 6Z rear design will be similar.
A recent leak showcases the ZenFone 6Z could have triple cameras setup on the rear with gradient finish. Like most of the latest phones, it could have an under-glass fingerprint scanner. The good thing is Asus fans don't have to wait longer as the official announcement of ZenFone 6 lineup is less than a week away. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
