Asus is expected to release its next flagship smartphone Zenfone 6 on May 16. The company has not revealed any information about the specifications of the device, nevertheless, an alleged Zenfone 6 has been featured on Geekbench with its key specs.
The smartphone was spotted on Geekbench with a model number ASUS_I01WD. Notably, a device with the same model number received certification from Wi-Fi Alliance recently.
According to the benchmark listings, Asus Zenfone 6 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone was seen running Android 9.0 Pie when it was put through the test and scored 3,527 and 11,190 points in single and multi-core tests, respectively.
The smartphone has been rumored to feature a pop-up or sliding selfie camera. It is currently unclear if the device will be called Zenfone 6 or Zenfone 6Z. Considering the fact that the Snapdragon 845-powered device from Asus was called Zenfone 5Z, it could be expected that the new device will be called Zenfone 6Z.
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.
Asus also put out an ad in a magazine at MWC teasing the release of its Zenfone 6. 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.
