Asus Renames Zen Fone 6 as'Asus 6z; India Launch on June 19

The landing of Asus ZenFone 6 in India has been teased by Asus and Flipkart for a long while, yet the ongoing Delhi High court-directed restraint on the sale of Zen or ZenFone-branded items put some uncertainty via smartphone's India launch. After the hearing, the Delhi High Court bench ruled in favour of Telecare and barred Asus from using the ZEN or ZENFONE marks for selling smartphones. You may recall that Asus had introduced Zenfone 6 in Spain last month. While this device is yet to be launched in India, it looks like the company has rolled out the much-awaited feature to the smartphone.

Telecare Network claimed that it had been using "ZEN" and "ZENMOBILE" in its product branding since 2008, and that ASUS's "ZenFone" name, introduced to the Indian market in 2014, is identical or deceptively similar to those trademarks. Also, the display of the Asus Zenfone 6 is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection.

While the regular ZenFone 6 flagship device is available in 6GB and 64/128GB, and 8GB and 256GB variants, ZenFone 6 Edition 30 will embrace 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

The Asus 6z is priced at Euro 499 (roughly Rs 39,100) for the 6GB + 64GB variant and Euro 559 (roughly Rs. 43,800) for the 6GB + 128GB version.

BBC scraps universal free TV licences for over-75s
Asking pensioners to pay for a television licence will "not solve the real long-term issues facing the BBC", a DUP MP has said. Campaign groups condemned the decision. "This is an extra tax on older folk who might not have the cash to pay it".

The smartphone will run on Android 9 pie out of the box with Asus ZenUI 6 on top. The storage is expandable up to 1TB with microSD.

The Asus offering has a motorised rotating camera module, which houses a 48-megapixel primary shooter with f/1.79 aperture accompanied by a 13-megapixel secondary ultra-wide-angle camera. Measuring 159.1 x 75.4 x 9.2 mm, the smartphone packs a 5000 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 support for fast charging. And yes, that's what the dual flip camera phone could retail as in our Country.

Now that the launch date has been confirmed by Flipkart, we can expect the company to start sending out invites for the launch event very soon.
