Asus Zenphone 6Z launching in India on 19 June.

Asus ZenFone 6 will be launching in India on 19 June it has been teased by Asus and Flipkart for quite some time, but the recent Delhi High court-directed restrain on the sale of Zen or ZenFone-branded products put some doubt over the phone’s India launch. It appears that Asus has now found a workaround to the ban by launching the ZenFone 6 in the country under a different name. Aside from the different marketing gimmik, the hardware specifications of the Asus 6z remain the same as the ZenFone 6.

Earlier this month, the Delhi High Court restrained Asus from selling and advertising mobile phones and accessories under the Zen, ZenFone or any other identical trademark. The court order effectively meant a ban on the sale of Zen or ZenFone-branded phones, putting the highly anticipated launch of the ZenFone 6 in India – which Flipkart had been teasing as a sales partner for the past few weeks – in jeopardy.

As for the specifications and features, they remain the same as the ZenFone 6. The phone packs a 6.4-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

The Asus offering has a motorised rotating camera module, which houses a 48-megapixel primary shooter with f/1.79 aperture accompanied by a 13-megapixel secondary ultra-wide-angle camera. The phone comes equipped with a large 5,000 mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology. Click here to know more.
