ASUS Zenfone 6 to Feature 3.5mm Audio Jack & New Smart Key

Asus confirms specifications of its upcoming flagship smartphone, Zenfone 6

Asus has revealed several details of the Zenfone 6 as it prepares to face off against the OnePlus 7 series. As per its most recent tweet, Asus Zenfone 6 will run on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor - it is the same chipset that powers smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S10 and other premium leading smartphones in the market.

Asus has announced the availability of Android Q Beta Program for Asus ZenFone 5Z flagship smartphone. While most smartphones with no-notch display come with a pop-up selfie camera design, the Taiwanese company has opted for slider design.

The presentation of the Asus ZenFone 6 is set for May 16, but as with the case with all mobile leaks before launch, the Zenfone 6 has leaked online by popular mobile leaked Evan Blass on Twitter. The smartphone is also shown to support a triple card tray that can hold two SIM cards and a MicroSD card simultaneously.

According to the teaser and the subsequent Instagram post, some of the core specifications of Asus Zenfone 6 have now been confirmed.

Speaking on Friday to the New York Times , Giuliani said: "They say I was meddling in the election - ridiculous - but that's their spin".

If we talk about the display, the AnTuTu listing of Zenfone 6 has revealed that it will sport a Full HD+ (2340 ×1080 pixels) 19:5:9 aspect ratio display but the screen size is still unknown. These listings reveal it will be powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset with at least 6GB of RAM. Also, the company is now adding an additional hardware button called Smart Key. This setup will include a 48-megapixel primary camera and a 13-megapixel secondary camera. It has an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

Asus has always tried to position its flagship Zenfone phones to compete directly with the OnePlus phones, so the presence of a headphone jack might give them a some advantage.

A teaser posted by ASUS earlier seemingly confirms the presence of an edge-to-edge screen with nearly zero bezels at the top, bottom, and sides.

Did Asus just unveiled the best flagship smartphone yet?
