If there’s one thing that has changed for good with newer Android versions over the years, it has to be quicker upgrade cycles. We have been seeing it this year with Android 10 reaching more flagship Android phones within the first two months of Google releasing the stable version for its Pixel phones. The OnePlus phones have the Android 10 update and so do the flagships from Xiaomi and Nokia. And now, Asus joins this list by rolling out the Android 10 update for its unique flagship – the Asus 6z.
The Asus 6z is the first Asus smartphone to get the Android 10 update and going by the timeline, it’s a pretty quick update cycle given that this phone runs on a customised version of Android. The update is being rolled out in a phased manner and it is being distributed via OTA update. Asus 6z users need to check for updates if they don’t receive the notification from the Settings. As usual, the update will weigh close to 2GB and hence, you should be connected to a Wi-Fi network to download the update.
And as expected, there are a lot of new features with the Android 10 update and the best part is that Asus is bringing the new features under the ZenUI 6 skin. Hence, all the special Android 10 features such as the new gesture navigation system, dark mode, enhanced privacy and location settings, and more. These features will be baked into ZenUI 6 which also means you will get to enjoy some of Asus’ proprietary AI features.
Hence, the Asus 6z now becomes even better value than before for geeks, especially at a starting price of Rs 31,999. The 6z is one of the many Snapdragon 855-equipped flagship Android phones launched this year and for performance enthusiasts, it’s a great device. The 6z comes with a massive 5000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging system. However, while the flagship-grade specs are a major draw, the 6z is the most unique smartphone we have seen this year.
Unlike any other phone, the Asus 6z comes with a Flip Camera system. The phone has a dual-camera system comprising of a 48-megapixel main camera and a 13-megapixel wide-angle camera mounted on a flip module. When required, the user can rotate the rear camera system for taking selfies and videos on the front. The motorised mechanism also makes for a full-screen display with very thin bezels and no notch.
