After a couple of ‘not so good’ years, 2018 turned out to be a great year for Asus. The company launched some impressive phones in almost every budget segment. We saw one of the cheapest Snapdragon 845-powered phone from the company, the Zenfone 5Z, and the cheapest Snapdragon 636-powered phone, the Zenfone Max Pro M1. Then there was the popular mid-range phone, the Zenfone 5 with great cameras. In 2019, the Asus Zenfone 6 lineup will be launched.
Today, we got the images, and hands-on video of some of the prototypes of the phone and the company will select one of these as the final design for the Zenfone 6. These images and hands-on videos are from the YouTube channel, C4ETech and since these are prototypes, the final design may be different. Still, the prototypes are impressive.
The first prototype is perhaps the most amazing one. We have hearing rumors of the tiny hole for the front-facing camera on Samsung’s 2019’s flagships but looks like Asus has this design in mind as well. As shown in the images above, the prototype has a metal frame and a glass back.
There is a bezel-less design on the front with a bottom chin. Unlike this year’s Zenfone 5 and 5Z, there is no notch, and for the front camera, there is a hole. This is a pretty unique design, but it is difficult to say if the Asus Zenfone 6 will launch with the same design.
There are dual (or maybe triple) cameras on the back that are placed in the middle. The USB Type-C port, the headphone jack, and the speaker grill are placed on the bottom, whereas the SIM card tray is placed on the top.
The second prototype of the Asus Zenfone 5Z shows a similar dual camera placement on the rear as this year’s Zenfones. The fingerprint scanner is also placed on the back. On the front, there is a notch similar to the one on the Essential phone, but it is not placed in the middle on top. Instead, the notch is placed on the top right of the screen which is, again, a unique design.
Finally, there is this third prototype that shows a waterdrop notch housing the single front-facing camera. The display has minimal side bezels, and there is a bottom chin as well.
The best thing about this prototype is the presence of triple cameras on the rear. The cameras are arranged vertically like the Huawei’s P20 Pro. The fingerprint reader is also placed on the rear.
Well, the leaks have started, and we will soon get more details regarding the Asus Zenfone 6 lineup for 2019. So, stay tuned.
