Asus introduced the Zenfone 5z at MWC 2018 with a Snapdragon 845 chipset and an impressively low price tag of $340 in India. The appearance of the phone was nothing out of the ordinary for a 2018 flagship - dual camera, fancy colors, up to 256 GB RAM, and a wide notch on the display.
Later the notch shrank to a waterdrop cutout, as seen in Oppo and Huawei smartphones, and it looks like it will also appear on the Asus Zenfone 6. But hereís the catch - the new device will have the notch on the right side and not on the center, according to early prototype units.
At first you think the image is a bad joke, but after seeing the video people with mild OCD might be bothered and we canít judge them. Aside from the weird positioning of the front-facing camera, everything else on the Asus Zenfone 6 prototype seems normal - earpiece in the top bezel, USB-C and 3.5 mm audio jack, and a speaker on the bottom.
We also see a small black particle below the dual cameras which might be a weird fingerprint scanner but could also be the PDAF sensor, while the reader could go under the display. 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.

FUNNY! If Asus does it, it's "weird". If Apple or Samsung does it then it's innovative and original, LOL! I actually prefer it off to the side than in the middle of the phone.
Completely agree it was like when BBM ( black berry messenger ) first came out.. The selfie camera seem to be dieing out imo.. just hope it gets speed up...
Hope the camera is better than the Zenfone 5 and doesn't completely white out clouds and sunlight.
