Asus confirms specifications of its upcoming flagship smartphone, Zenfone 6

Yesterday, we got the first pricing details of the upcoming Asus ZenPhone 6 in Taiwan, thanks to iThome for sharing that.

The latest teaser image for the Zenfone 6 from ASUS confirms that the phone will run on a Snapdragon 855 SoC.

The teaser also reveals that Asus Zenfone 6 will hold an earphone jack different than other brands that are skipping the port for USB Type-C.

Earlier: ASUS has already confirmed that it will launch its flagship Zenfone 6 smartphone on May 16 at an event in Valencia, Spain. The ZenFone 6 will come with a a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion, along with dual-SIM slots. Some of the other specifications that have been revealed courtesy leaked GeekBench and Antutu tests include 6GB RAM, Android 9 Pie based ZenUI, three variants based on 6GB, 8GB and 12GB RAM.

Recent benchmark results also show that the ZenFone 6 will feature a Full HD+ display, although there is no information available about the actual size of the handset's screen. It is placed on the right edge along with the power button and volume rocker. The device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, which is the same that is said to come in the upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone.
