Asus India will be launching the new flagship smartphone in the Indian market today. The new Asus 6Z smartphone will come with Snapdragon 855 SoC and a 48MP flip camera. To recall, the Taiwanese phone maker introduced Zenfone 6 at an event in Spain last month, which is scheduled to be launched in the country today. Ahead of its official release in the country, the company rebranded the smartphone as Asus 6Z from Zenfone 6 as per the order from Delhi High Court.
