The possible Asus Zenfone 5Z successor appears to be in the works already. Rumor mill suggests that the Asus Zenfone 6 could be the next in-line from Asus. However, the launch could be a long way ahead. The smartphone is said to be in the prototype stage for now. Previously, a few images of the alleged Asus Zenfone 6 prototype were leaked online, but now another set of images along with a video has surfaced.
The latest leak comes from HD Blog and are images of the alleged Asus Zenfone 6 prototype from an advanced stage of development. The new leaked design appears very different from previous leaks.
From the new prototype, it appears that Asus has incorporated a smaller waterdrop-like notch, but not in the center. The notch can be seen slightly on the right. Coming to the video, it is seen that the prototype comes with dual camera setup at the back, which is now in the center instead of top left. Previously, it was tipped to sport triple camera setup. Other design aspects include bottom firing speakers along with USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm audio jack.
It is possible that Asus might just be experimenting with all set of possibilities during the development stage and the final product may be entirely different. As of now, it is rumored that the successor to the Asus Zenfone 5Z could launch early next year.
