A new official teaser from Asus confirms some additional details about Zenfone 6. The new teaser confirms that the phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and retains the 3.5mm Audio Jack. It features a triple slot for two sim cards and dedicated MicroSD card. There is an additional smart key button in addition to the Volume rocker and Power button. The Notification LED is also visible.
apart from these details, we have some additional information which comes from Marcel Campos, who is Head of Global Marketing Operations at ASUS in the form of cryptic Morse code messages on his Instagram account. Here is the morse code:
.-.. .. –. ..- . .–. .- .-. .- —.. ….. ….. -….- ….- —.. .—- …– -….- ….. —– —– —– . ..-. .- .-.. . -.-. — — … – . .–. …. .- -. .–. .- -. – — .-.. — — . ..- . -.. ..- .- .-. -.. — -.-. .- — .–. — … … .. .-.. …- .-
If you convert this Morse code to normal language, it comes out as :
LIGUEPARA 855-4813-5000 EFALECOMSTEPHANPANTOLOMEU EDUARDO CAMPOS SILVA
This is basically in the Portuguese language, but if you skip everything except the number, you are left with 855-4813-5000 which gives you some clues about Zenfone 6. The first 855 basically tells you the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, while the 48 & 13 probably represent the 48MP primary camera sensor and 13MP secondary sensor. The last number i.e. 5,000 probably represent the 5,000 mAh battery. If you remember, Asus packs the 5,000 mAh battery in their popular mid-range device Zenfone Max Pro M2 without making it thick.
We have not seen any flagship device that comes with 5,000 mAh battery and to be honest we are not so sure if this assumption will turn out as true. Stay tuned at AndroidPure and we will keep you updated.
