Asus 6z 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB versions will be available in India starting July 1
As far as reasonably priced flagships go, the Asus 6z is a pretty compelling offer. This makes its tardiness on the India market a little bit unfortunate. If you haven't been keeping up with these particular developments - the ZenFone 6, as its is internationally known, should have hit shelves in the country on June 19. However, a ruling by the Delhi High Court barred the Taiwanese company from launching any phone in India with the "ZenFone" branding and pushed that date back a little to June 26.
Since then Flipkart has been exclusively offering the base 6GB/64GB model for INR 31,999 ($460/€405). The 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB versions were delayed further still. Regardless of whether or not that was a purely marketing strategy or related to the court ruling in some way, the two higher-end tiers are coming on July 1. Pricing is set at INR 34,999 ($505/€445) and INR 39,999 ($580/€510), respectively. No word on the 12GB RAM and 512GB storage Edition 30 making a local appearance, though.
The Asus 6z / Zenfone 6 offers a Snapdragon 855 chipset, 5,000 mAh battery, and stock-like Android 9 Pie software experience, along with the 6.4" 1080p+ notch-less display. It includes an interesting flip camera with a 48 MP Sony IMX586 main sensor and a 13 MP ultra-wide snapper with 125-degree field-of-view, awarded a record-breaking DxOMark selfie score.

ZenMobile.in They dont have the rights to ZenFone, but the courts ruled the similarity in their favo(u)r. Asus was late to the Indian market and gave these guys a cheap local headstart. Real shame. But my ZenFone3 is/was awesome!! Can't wait to upg...
