ASUS recently confirmed that it will be unveiling its next-generation ZenFone 6 series smartphones at an event in Spain on May 16. Ahead of the global debut of the ZenFone 6 series, the company’s upcoming flagship ZenFone 6Z flagship smartphone has been spotted at the US FCC.
The FCC filings suggest the upcoming ASUS flagship smartphone will have dual cameras at the rear. We can also see an LED flash module placed between the two horizontally-stacked sensors as well as a rectangular shaped fingerprint sensor. Apart from the placement of the camera sensors and the fingerprint sensor, the FCC listing also tells us the ZenFone 6Z will have 18W fast charging support.
While 18W fast charging on flagship devices sounded impressive last year, it is definitely disappointing in 2019. Even budget Android smartphones such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 now offer 18W fast charging support. Motorola’s Moto G7 Plus, which is a mid-range Android smartphone, supports 27W fast charging. Most flagship smartphones released this year offer 27W or higher fast charging.
ASUS ZenFone 6Z is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor under the hood. In terms of memory, the ZenFone 6Z is likely to be available with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB internal memory. Apart from its core specifications, there is very little that is known regarding the hardware specs of the ZenFone 6Z currently. Previous rumors have suggested the upcoming flagship will use a dual slider design featuring dual selfie cameras, a front-facing LED flash, and a speaker strip.
In addition to the ZenFone 6Z, ASUS is expected to introduce other new ZenFone 6 series smartphones at its upcoming launch event in Valencia. While no details regarding the other ZenFone 6 series phones are available right now, we can expect at least some new information to surface online within the next few weeks.
