Taiwanese technology company Asus has today launched its 6Z smartphone in India. The handset was launched globally last month, but in other regions of the world, it is known as Asus Zenfone 6. The company has rebranded it for its India launch after a court ruling said that Asus could not launch any products in India with ‘Zen’ or ‘Zenfone branding. The device is the successor of Asus Zenfone 5Z, that was the flagship device of the company in 2018.
The key highlights of the Asus 6Z smartphone include a 48MP primary sensor, a rotating camera sensor and a 5,000mAh battery. Here are all the price details and specifications of the newly-launched device that you should know about:
Asus 6Z price in India
Asus Zenfone is available in three storage variants in India. While the 6GB RAM/64GB storage model costs Rs 31,999, the 6GB RAM/128GB storage version and the 8GB RAM/256GB storage variant are priced at Rs 34,999 and Rs 39,999 respectively. The handset will be available for purchase via Flipkart starting June 26.
The e-commerce website will be providing Asus 6Z customers with its Complete Mobile Protection Plan at just Rs 99. Otherwise, the plan costs Rs 3,999.
At the given price, Asus 6Z smartphone competes directly with the likes of the recently launched OnePlus 7. It inevitably also competes with Samsung Galaxy A80 that also comes with a rotating camera setup, but then, we don’t know which among the two is a better value for money device as Samsung’s offering has not been launched in India yet.
