Asus Zenfone 6 flaunts bizarre corner notch in leaked hands-on video

There's a lot of variety when it comes to notches these days — you've got the wide (iPhone) notch, the tiny (Essential/Sharp) notch, the huge (Pixel 3) notch, the waterdrop notch, and so on — but the common denominator between all of them is that they are centered. Well, seems like Asus has gotten bored of this trend, as the upcoming Zenfone 6 has a small notch shoved away in the upper right corner of its screen.
This was revealed in a recently-leaked hands-on video of the device, and though it is in line with previous rumors regarding the Zenfone 6, it is such a bizarre look. See for yourselves:

The first thing that catches your eye will likely be the offset notch, followed by the rather sizable bottom bezel. At this point, we can't be sure if Asus's design is any better (or any worse) than current devices with centered notches, but the only difference we can think of that this design choice could possibly make, is a potentially less obtrusive notch that's not smack-dab in the middle. But what do you think? Yay or nay?

I don't know, correct me if I'm stupid, but at least this makes more sense as it gives more space for notification icons at the bar on top? It looks bizzare as it's something new, but it surely can grow on, just like notches seemingly grew on people in general, sort of.

5 companies have already launched phones with a bezelless notchless design. I think 2019 will be the year of Sliders and Pop up cameras. Asus will be stupid if they launch this. Anyone will prefer a notchless cleaner design over a notch anyday.
