Asus 6z Full Specification, Price, and Release Date

When you are talking about reasonably priced flagships, the Asus 6z should not be left out of the discussion. The Asus Zenfone 6, as it is internationally known, should have arrived the Indian market on June 19th. However, a ruling by the Delhi High Court banned the Taiwanese phone manufacturer from launching any phone in India with the “Zenfone” branding, and this pushed the date back a little to June 26th.

Asus 6z Price and Release Date

Flipkart has been exclusively offering the base model of the Asus 6z (6GB RAM + 64GB storage) for INR31,999 ($460/€405). The 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB versions were delayed further still. Regardless of whether or not that was a purely marketing strategy or related to the court ruling in some way, the two higher-end tiers are coming on July 1. Pricing is set at INR 34,999 ($505/€445) and INR 39,999 ($580/€510), respectively. No word on the 12GB RAM and 512GB storage Edition 30 making a local appearance, though.
