Asus 6Z features, specifications
The Asus 6Z features a 6.4-inch IPS LCD panel with FHD+ resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 6. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC along with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB internal storage. As mentioned above, the Asus 6Z comes in three different storage and RAM variants. The base model comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, the second combination sports 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The top of the line specification comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.
Moving to the camera section, the Asus 6Z sports a rear dual-camera setup. We get a 48-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.79 aperture and a 13-megapixel sensor with a 125-degree ultra-wide angle lens. Asus has also added a laser-assisted autofocus mechanism along with the Dual LED flash unit to improve the camera package. Asus 6Z also comes with dual 5-magnet stereo speakers along with a Dual NxP smart amps, dual mics, and a 3.5mm audio socket. The Asus 6Z also comes with a dedicated customizable-smart key on the right side of the device.
It also features connectivity including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, 3.5mm audio socket, GPS, NFC, FM Radio, and USB Type-C port. The smartphone also comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a triple shot. The first two slots are for VoLTE 4G-enabled nano-SIMs and the third one is for a dedicated microSD card slot. Asus has also added an impressive 5,000mAh battery along with 18W QuickCharge 4.0 support in the Asus 6Z.
5,000mAh battery is significant as Asus 6Z is not as heavy in weight for the capacity of the battery. In fact, the overall weight of the device is somewhat generous given the flip camera module and the 5,000mAh battery. Last but not least, the device runs Android 9 Pie-based near stock Android, Zen UI 6.
