To compete with OnePlus 7 and Mi 9, Asus has announced its new device Zenfone 6 last month. Asus has finally unveiled the device here in India as 6z; they changed the name due to the ban by Delhi High-Court for using Zen branding. Telecare Network, a company in India has complained that it has been using Zen and ZenMobile as its product monikers since 2008. And Asus was banned to release phones under Zen branding. Here in India, the device is a strong rival to Honor 20 & OnePlus 7.

The 6Z spots a large 6.4-inch edge-to-edge IPS LCD FHD+ display covered in Gorilla Glass 6. It has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 which allows for an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 92%. These large panels are really useful while consuming media. Additionally, it can blow up to 600 nits.

Thanks to Asus for providing a notch less display. The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 which also powers the OnePlus 7, K20 Pro and Mi 9. It is paired with 6/8GB of RAM and 64/128/256GB of storage versions. The best part of this is the device supports microSD cards of up to 2TB. It still uses UFS 2.1 as it’s storage type.

Talking about optics it houses a motorized dual camera setup. It has a Sony IMX586 48MP with an aperture value of f/1.8 primary camera sensor which is coupled with 13MP with an aperture value of f/2.4 Wide-Angle sensor with 125 Degree. By default the camera stays at the rear, if we switch it to the front, the camera will rotate automatically to the front.

The module can be set on any angle required in between 0 to 180-degrees which is really unique touch. The angle can be set using volume key as well as a soft button from the screen. The company has also revealed results of a lab test during its official launch. The camera module can survive until 100000 flips, which is converted to 28 flips every day for 5 years. However, in real-world usage, there may be some differences. The phone also supports 4K video recording at 60fps paired with electronic image stabilization (EIS). Full-HD slow-mo video at both 240fps and 120fps is supported, as is HD slow-mo at 480fps. Accompanying this will also be a new function Asus calls Super Night Mode that should drastically improve low-light photography results.

Vivo India has launched a teaser page for their upcoming smartphone, the Vivo Z1 Pro in their website, and it reveals some of the important specifications of the phone. Earlier it was speculated that the Vivo Z1 Pro that is to be launched in India will be a rebranded Vivo Z5x. However the newly released teaser suggests that the rumor was indeed false, and the two smartphones are entirely different.

According to the teaser in the Vivo India website, the Vivo Z1 Pro will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor. Vivo even goes further and teases that the Z1 Pro is the first Snapdragon 712 powered smartphone in India, along with the tagline ” Performance! Fully Loaded”.

The Snapdragon 712 processor is technically an overclocked Snapdragon 710, along with some new features such as support for Quick Charge 4+ and Qualcomm’s True Wireless Stereo Plus technology. The processor was announced earlier this year, and the only smartphone running on it currently is Mi 9 SE.

Coming to the design segment, the Vivo Z1 Pro comes with a punch hole camera design, which houses a 32MP in-display selfie camera, as opposed to the 16MP camera onboard the Vivo Z5x. However, there isn’t much information about the display. In the rear, there is a triple camera setup, which is believed to be a depth sensor and wide angle sensor along with the main shooter.
