Asus Zenfone 6 arrives in India as Asus 6z

Yordan, 19 June 2019

Asus introduced the Zenfone 6 flagship in Valencia, Spain, last month. The phone has a Snapdragon 855 chipset, a unique rotating 48 MP camera, and a huge 5,000 mAh battery, and now the Indian fans are getting the phone as well.

The device was launched today in India without the Zenfone moniker under the short name Asus 6z, so it complies with the order from the Delhi High Court.

With implementing a rotating mechanism for the main camera, Asus effectively removed any static front-facing shooters and provided a notch-less experience on the 6.4” LCD of Full HD+ resolution. There are three RAM+storage combos and there is a microSD slot as well.

The motorized shooter that can be pointed anywhere on a 180-degree curve has a 48 MP main shooter with Sony IMX586 sensor, coupled by a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle snapper. There is also FM Radio that Asus executives announced as a “Made for India” feature.

Some other market-exclusive functions are Call Recording, Twin Apps and Applock with your face or fingerprint scanner.

The 6/64 GB Asus 6z is priced at INR31,999 ($460/€410), doubling the storage would cost you INR34,999 ($500/€450), while the most expensive 8/256 GB version will be INR39,999 ($573/€512). All variants will be available on Flipkart starting June 26.

Oneplus 7 is better in most of the department than Asus 6z. I am not expecting better phone at less cost. I mean internal ROM is 128gb in oneplus 7 base model. Asus also should go with 6GB + 128 GB instead of 6GB +64GB for base model.
