Asus which announced its flagship the Zenfone 6 a few days back has teased its India launch. The phone has been listed on Flipkart with all the specifications except for the launch date. The dedicated page for Zenfone 6 has listed out all the specifications and feature that one can look forward to.
The highlight of the Asus Zenfone 6 is its motorized rotating camera, 5000 mAh battery pack and near stock android. It comes with a notch-less display with almost zero bezels. The phone doesn’t come with a front facing camera setup instead the rear camera setup is motorized and can swivel to take selfies as well.
Talking about the specifications, Zenfone 6 comes with a 6.4-inch full-HD+ IPS display, an octa-core Snapdragon 855 SoC with up to 8GB of RAM. It comes packed with 256 GB of internal storage and supports memory expansion up to 2TB via a micro SD card.
On the imaging part, it comes with a dual camera setup with the primary sensor being a 48-megapixel Sony sensor with f/1.79 and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. A massive 5000 mAh battery powers the device and supports Quick charge 4.0 fast charging. There is a 3.5mm audio jack and USB Type-C, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5), Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS connectivity options.
The phone runs on near stock ZenUI built on top of Android 9 Pie and was launched in two color options Midnight Black and Twilight Silver color options. It is available in three different storage and memory combinations namely; 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256 GB. Pricing of these variants in Europe starts at Eur 499, Eur 559 and EUR 599 respectively.
Tried searching the "Asus Zenfone 6" on Flipkart. It's giving me some weird results, though listed with the same search term. And from the look of things, it's definitely not the same phone that's shown here.
I actually, didn't try searching yet, but maybe it's still not live for the Indian version of their web site.
This is a first of its kind design where the phone's rear camera motorizes to swivel to take selfies and work as a front facing camera as well.
