The biggest highlight of the ZenFone 6 is the freaky notch location. Its waterdrop notch locates in the top right corner of the screen, which also houses a front camera.

The system status bar is optimized accordingly, and the signal status and the electric quantity of the phone are showed separately because of the notch.   

Other details of the design are the mirror glass rear case, the metal center frame, the rear vertical dual cameras, and the fingerprint module is also on the back, but it’s close to the bottom of the camera module.

As you can see from the screenshot of the video, the width of the front notch is controlled to the right degree, but not perfect.

Another highlight of the ZenFone 6 is the interface. It has both USB-C and 3.5mm headphone jack. That’s rare among the most of smartphones design in the market.

According to the report, the exposed model may be just the trial model. After all, the notch design may arouse a heat discussion. Although Android's 9.0 P system allows this and makes deep optimization at the system level, there is an acceptance process after all, especially if there are no other manufacturers following the design in the future.

However, if you don’t like such new-fangled notch design, you can buy the ASUS ZenFone 5 which has a normal notch design. What’s more, during the 11.11 Sale on GearBest, you can enjoy a 41% OFF, and the final price is just $319.99. That’s really a good bang for your buck.
