Asus Zenfone 6 is all set to launch on May 16 in Valencia, Spain. But before that, we know everything about the flagship straight from Asus as well as with leaks & rumors. In fact, we’ve already written an article where we’ve gathered a lot of information on Zenfone 6. Our thirst of pouring information doesn’t end here, as we now know the entire specifications and price of Zenfone 6 series now. So, we thought to keep everything under one roof as a rumor mill. Let’s get started!
Zenfone 6 Specifications
Asus posted a photo on Twitter which showed a lot of details about the phone’s specifications. From the image, it’s very clear that Zenfone 6 will have Snapdragon 855 Processor, a dedicated SD card slot which makes it be a triple slot, a headphone jack, a notification LED even with a thin bezel at the top, a USB-C port, and the new smart key which we’re guessing it to be Google Assistant. These are the main features in the upcoming Asus flagship – Zenfone 6 series.
From other sources, we curated some other specifications of Zenfone 6 series which are rumored to be the actual specifications. As per several other leaks, Zenfone 6 will come with 6GB RAM with 128GB Storage or 8GB RAM with 256 GB Storage or 12GB RAM with 512GB Storage. On the camera department, Zenfone 6 will boast two rear cameras – 48 MP + 13 MP and the phone will be powered by a massive 5000 mAh battery. The display will have a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. On the software side like any other flagship, Zenfone 6 will come with Android Pie out of the box. The phone also comes with 18W fast charging support and the fast charger might get included in the box. I guess you know everything now? Well, what about the selfie camera? Where is it? Is there a notch, or is it a pop-up selfie, or a slider? Umm…let’s find out.
Zenfone 6 Design & Selfie Camera
Asus is boasting about the Zenfone 6 with taglines like “Defy Ordinary” and “The Revolution is Coming” so we should also expect a newer kind of design philosophy, but maybe they are using these fancy terms to create the hype! As the phone will not have a notch it seems a dual slider design which we’ve already shared previously. Remember the old Nokia N95 which has a dual slider where it has dedicated music keys? As per the old leak, we’re guessing the Zenfone 6 will also have a dual slider where on swiping to top, it will have the selfie camera, and sliding to the bottom shows a speaker grill. This makes it be one of the first Zenfone flagships to offer a flagship-level stereo sound.
The other case is that it can feature a pop-up selfie camera like the V15 Pro, or the new OnePlus 7 series. We can confirm that there’s no hole-punch as it’d have been featured in the teasers itself.
Zenfone 6 Price & Launch Details
As mentioned before, Asus is launching the Zenfone 6 series on May 16 in Valencia, Spain. There’s a way to watch it online, and we’ll make sure to bring you all the details as soon as possible.

The top end variant of 12GB/512GB would cost around ₹68,000 ($970). These are the rumored prices that are converted to Indian currency.
