The much-awaited OnePlus 7 Pro will be launching on May 14 but it is not the only flagship being launched this month as there is another company which will also be unveiling its own flagship smartphone. Taiwanese electronics maker Asus is set to launch its upcoming flagship smartphone – the Asus Zenfone 6 on May 16. The dates have been revealed by Asus itself and the company has also teased about the device on the social media. Asus on its Twitter account posted a teaser image of its upcoming Zenfone 6 along with the launch date and time.
The teaser image holds a caption “Defy Ordinary” which hints at the unique and distinctive design the smartphone might have. Other than that, the image also shows the silhouette of the Zenfone 6 with its no-notch and a bezel-less display. The image also mentions the date (May 16) and the time (20:00 CEST or 11:30pm IST) of the launch. The launch event will take place in Valencia, Spain.
Earlier, some images and renders of the smartphone were leaked which showed a dual-slider design of the Zenfone 6. According to the renders, the Zenfone 6 will come with dual-rear and front cameras. There is a possibility that this design will feature in the 5G variant of the Zenfone 6. Although the teased image does show the device in a shadow, it doesn’t reveal any specifications or any major key feature of the Zenfone 6. But it is certain that the smartphone will be a successor to the 2018’s Zenfone 5Z.
