The successor to the Asus Zenfone 5Z that was launched this year, the Asus Zenfone 6 will likely come some time early next year. The prototypes show various design ideas, which include a smaller display cutout for the front camera, along with various positions for the camera itself, Gizmochina reports. In one image, the camera is shown to be completely surrounded by the display, while others show display cutouts similar to what we saw on the Essential PH-1. Also showcased is the triple-camera setup at the rear. Also Read - PUBG New State receives over 17 million pre-registrations as closed alpha testing ends
Of course, the final product will likely be quite different, given that the practicalities of these designs have to be considered before adopting a concept. However, considering that the triple-camera setup is gaining prominence, it’s likely that it will be adopted in next year’s Asus Zenfone 6. For the time being though, buyers looking for a flagship Asus smartphone have the Asus Zenfone 5Z as an option. Also Read - Apple CEO Tim Cook claims iOS is more secure than Android
