Asus to launch Zenfone 6 as Asus 6Z tomorrow in India
The Taiwanese Tech giant, Asus is launching the 6Z tomorrow in India. It is the same flagship smartphone that was launched in international markets as Zenfone 6.

The camera unit can be flipped and used to take ultra-wide portraits which also focuses quicker with its laser focus system. The same camera can be used to take 4K 60fps videos at the front and back.
