Taiwanese company, Asus is all set to launch its latest Zenfone 6 Series on May 16 at a special event in Valencia, Spain. The company even released a new teaser last week that hinted at no-notch display. And now it seems we have had our first unofficial look of the Asus Zenfone 6 in a video that has surfaced showing the almost bezel-less front panel, dual-slider system and the back panel of the device.
The video showing the alleged Asus Zenfone 6 was posted by the YouTube channel Geek Loko and it reveals the back panel of the smartphone along with the front which is one large slab of display with only a small bezel on the bottom. The video also shows that Asus might bring dual rear cameras in a horizontally placed camera module at the top rear of the phone, and below it will be a rounded rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. But what can be called the most unique and the best part of the smartphone is the dual-slider system shown where the slider pops out the front camera from the top and the speaker from the bottom.
Several rumors initially had hinted at a punch-hole or a waterdrop-style notched display, but Asus’ official teaser has already confirmed full-screen display design for Asus Zenfone 6. The alleged smartphone was spotted on AnTuTu and Geekbench. As per the listing, the Zenfone 6 will feature a full HD+ display with 2340×1080 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The phone is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 855 processor and run Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box. It has also received FCC certification, which revealed dual-camera setup with a 48-megapixel main sensor. The handset could offer support for 18W fast charging.
