“ASUS ZenFone 6Z is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 855, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and run on Android 9.0 Pie”
ASUS recently confirmed to announce the ZenFone 6 series at an event on May 16th in Valencia, Spain. Ahead of the launch, an ASUS phone with the model number I01WD, which could be the ZenFone 6Z was spotted on the Geekbench benchmarking platform, revealing the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 855, backed by 6GB of RAM, and running Android 9.0 Pie. The phone was also spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance website as well with the same model number. Now, the handset has surfaced on the AnTuTu corroborating with earlier known details.
The AnTuTu listing of the ASUS flagship with the same I01WD model number reveals that the phone will have 128GB storage, full-HD+ display with 2,340 ×1,080 pixels resolution, and 19:5:9 aspect ratio screen. Meaning, it might feature a waterdrop notch, unlike the wide-notch found on the ZenFone 5Z from 2018. As per the AnTuTu listing, the phone has been tipped to feature a triple rear camera setup, consisting of a 48MP primary sensor, which could be Sony IMX586. The other two sensors could be – a wide-angle and a depth sensor. Surprisingly, the front is said to rock the same 48MP sensor for selfies, but it isn’t confirmed.
The ASUS ZenFone 6Z scored a moderate 363,172 points on AnTuTu, however, the high-end variant in the series might score more. The handset scored 3,527 points in the single-core test and 11,190 in the multi-core test on Geekbench. The promotional teaser of the ZenFone 6 hints at an edge-to-edge display, gradient colours with glass back. It is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, pack 6GB of RAM and run on the latest Zen UI based on Android 9.0 Pie. With the launch still almost a month away, there’s still a lot of time to know more details. So stay tuned for more updates.
