Remember the Asus Zenfone 5Z from last year? Yes, the cheapest device to feature Snapdragon 845 at its time of launch. Asus is on it again as the company is planning to launch this year’s flagship device under the Zenfone 6 series. And when a flagship launch is around, you can expect several leaks and rumors. Similar is the case with Asus Zenfone 6Z which reportedly is the new Android flagship coming this year from Asus. A new model touted as ASUS_I01WD spotted on Antutu is said to be the new smartphone from Asus named as Zenfene 6Z. Interestingly, the company has already announced to unveil a new Zenfone 6 smartphone series on 16 May in Valencia, Spain implying that this could be this year’s flagship.
Asus Zenfone 6Z Specifications and Features
Reportedly, the device will be running the latest Android 9.0 Pie out of the box as the last year 5Z had the latest Android OS of its launch time. Moreover, to add some more similarities to its predecessor, we can see ASUS’ own Zen UI skin over the stock Android. While the device screen size is still unknown, leaks are claiming that the display will have 2340 x 1080 pixels of resolution.
Some more information about the smartphone claimed that there will be 6GB of RAM offered in it along with two storage options including 64GB and 128GB. Powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, the model listed on Antutu has already beaten Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy S10 with 3,527 points on a single core test and 11,190 points in multi-core tests in front of Samsung Galaxy S10’s score of 3,438 on a single core test and 10,637 points in multi-core tests.
Some believable leaks also came about the camera department reporting that we might get a 48MP primary lens with Sony IMX586 sensor on the to rear-end with a multi-lens camera setup. This one is believable since it has been tried by a number of companies already such as Huawei, Oppo, Xiaomi, etc.
But what’s still doubtable is the news that the Taiwanese tech giant will be adding a 48MP shooter at the front end too. There are no reports about the front lens to have a Sony IMX586 sensor. For now, most of the global brands opt for maximum 32MP resolution in the selfie shooters. The leaks further claimed that we will have an in-display camera in the front at the place of pop-up selfie camera on a notch-less display.
Asus Zenfone 6Z Availability and Prices
Unlike other global tech giants, Asus is known for breaking the price barrier with an aggressive approach. Even after an exceptional performance bar, we can expect it to compete at budget flagship segment with the likes of OnePlus flagship. Moreover, we can expect other variants in the series such as 10GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB internal storage with varying prices.
The smartphone will be unveiled in Spain on 14 May and if this is the new flagship android, we have to wait for more for this to reach Indian markets. Stay tuned to AppsToFollow on Facebook, Twitter to stay updated on this device.
