Now, ahead of the official launch, new renders of the Asus Zenfone 6 have surfaced online, revealing the design of the upcoming Asus phone.
If the leaked renders (by Roland Quandt) are to be believed, the Zenfone 6 will offer a notch-less display design and a swivel dual-camera setup. The leaked images show the phone with a big display with a slightly thick chin. Furthermore, the Zenfone 6 might not come with a selfie camera. The flip camera module will utilize the rear cameras for capturing selfies and videos.
A few reports suggest that the flip camera module is made out of liquid metal which decreases its weight by 20 percent, and boosts its strength fourfold. At the back of the phone, one will also find a pill-shaped fingerprint reader, as per the renders. The device could also feature a 3D curved rear design and with gradient texture.
