Alleged Asus ZenFone 6 leak points to novel off-center notch

Notched displays are pervasive, controversial, and showing no signs of slowing down. While Apple couldn't fix it due to the hardware it packs in the latest iPhones, and Samsung has been avoiding it completely with uniform bezels, every other manufacturer has adopted the notch for an nearly edge-to-edge display. As already mentioned, we've seen three prototypes of the ZenFone 6 leak recently, and it is even possible that ASUS aims to utilize all those prototypes in 2019, who knows, though it's hard to expect that all three will be used for the ZenFone 6 lineup of devices.

An Italy-based site called HDblog.it has leaked images of what it believes to be the final build of the Asus ZenFone 6. The most notable feature on the handset is the new notch, or rather, the new placement of the notch within the confines of the display.

Notches on smartphones are commonplace these days.

At first you think the image is a bad joke, but after seeing the video people with mild OCD might be bothered and we cant judge them. There will also be a face scanning technology, likely the standard Face Unlock, given the small size of the unorthodox notch, leaving no room for 3D infrared sensors. This means that it is either embedded in the display or under the rear camera element. The frame seems to be made out of stainless steel, which could be the first for an ASUS smartphone. Round the back, there appears to be a dual camera module and a fingerprint scanner. On the bottom of the phone, you will be able to see a Type-C USB port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and the phone's speaker grills. The question remains, though, will those ZenFone 6 models sport different designs, or will ASUS stick to one. However, it's too early to say anything as these are unconfirmed photos of a prototype device, which is why you should this with a pinch of salt.
