Asus appears to be working on a Zenfone 5Z successor. Previously, a few images of the alleged Asus Zenfone 6 prototype were spotted online revealing a number of unique designs and also the back of the device. Now, an alleged ad has been spotted in a magazine at MWC 2019, which reveals that Asus will launch the Zenfone 6 smartphone on May 14 in Valencia, Spain.

Asus has sent no official invitation so far, nor has the company released an official teaser. However, the launch date of the Zenfone 6 was seen in a magazine that comes with the press passes for the attendees at MWC 2019 currently being held in Barcelona, Spain.

The advertisement on the magazine has a slogan “Defy Ordinary”, which perhaps mocks the notch design seen on current generation smartphones. This could mean that the upcoming Zenfone 6 may feature a slider mechanism or pop-up selfie camera, GSMArena reports. The device is also expected to include a triple rear camera configuration.
