Asus has put out an ad in a magazine at MWC teasing the release of its Zenfone 6. The company has not made any announcements, rolled out invites or posted any teaser of the upcoming Zenfone 6. Instead, Asus put a minimalistic ad inside the Official Show Preview for MWC by Mobile World Live. The publication is owned by GSMA, the same association that organizes the MWC. The Zenfone 6 would be a successor to the Zenfone 5Z, which is currently on sale in India.
The advertisement states that the launch of the Zenfone 6 will take place in Valencia, Spain on May 14. The advertisement also reveals a silhouette of the device showing a bezel-less display without a notch or a hole-punch. Lowyat first spotted the advertisement when they picked up their MWC press pass at Barcelona.
This advertisement comes as the first information about the upcoming smartphone from Asus as the company has not made any announcements or teased the smartphone on any social media platform. Asus might announce the launch date of the Zenfone 6 at MWC as well.
The upcoming Zenfone 6 smartphone would debut as a successor to the Zenone 5Z, which had managed to make a name for itself in the ₹30,000 price segment. The Zenfone 5Z is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 so it is only safe to assume that the Zenfone 6 would be coming with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. The silhouette of the smartphone suggests that the phone will be coming in with a slider or pop-up camera mechanism, nevertheless, it remains to be seen what kind of mechanism Asus will be adopting in its Zenfone 6 for a selfie camera.
The Taiwanese giant could also launch multiple smartphones in the same series but we will have to wait until May 14 for the official launch.
