A company called Telecare Network has petitioned the Delhi High Court stating that ASUS infringed on its ZenMobile trademark, and the court sided with Telecare, banning ASUS from using ZenFone branding in India. However, the ASUS flagship smartphone will not be arriving as the ZenFone 6 in the Indian market. A report that surfaced online last week had claimed the smartphone could be launched in India on June 16.
While ASUS has appealed the decision, it appears it doesn't intend to wait for the new ruling, so it has chose to rename the phone. Also, the display of the Asus Zenfone 6 is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection.
The court order comes after Telecare Network filed a case saying that the company had proprietary rights to "Zen" trademark.
Following the same, the ZenFone 6 has been listed on e-commerce giant Flipkart as "Asus 6z". It packs up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal storage. The storage is expandable up to 1TB with microSD.
The Asus Zenfone 6 will come with a triple rear camera setup with a 13MP Primary sensor with f/1.79 aperture, which is a Sony IMX586 sensor with a pixel size of 0.8μm, and a 13MP secondary camera with 125-degree ultra-wide lens with f/2.4 aperture. The main highlight of the smartphone is its flip camera setup. The phone comes equipped with a large 5,000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology. Software-wise, it is shipped with Android 9.0 Pie and ASUS' latest skin ZenUI 6 out of the box.
Now that the launch date has been confirmed by Flipkart, we can expect the company to start sending out invites for the launch event very soon.
