ASUS 6Z with Snapdragon 855 SoC and flip camera design launched in India

“The ASUS 6Z is the world’s first phone to offer a dual flip camera module that captures images from both the front and back”

ASUS has just launched its latest flagship smartphone dubbed the ASUS 6Z in India. The phone was originally unveiled in May as the world’s first smartphone to flaunt a dual flip camera module that captures photos from both the front and back. The new ASUS 6Z is a loaded device with an all-screen fascia and Qualcomm’s latest top-notch Snapdragon 855 processor. Notably, the ASUS 6Z is the company’s first smartphone to ditch the ZenFone branding due to a trademark infringement issue with India-based Zen Mobile.
