Asus ZenFone 6 launches in the US in a special edition with tweaked design and maxed-out specs
kick off US pre-orders (don't ask us why), although the buzz around this exciting OnePlus 7 Pro rival seems to be very much alive. That makes it an ideal time for Asus to release a fourth variant stateside at a not-so-reasonable $899.99 price. Ironically, this is the only model you can actually buy from the company's official US e-store right now, as the $500, $550, and $600 configurations are all listed as "temporarily sold out."Unfortunately, it took nearly three months for the ZenFone 6 to

The rest of the specs are the same across all ZenFone 6 variants, including everything from a 6.4-inch "all-screen NanoEdge" display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels to the aforementioned Snapdragon 855 SoC, a massive 5,000mAh battery, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, customizable side-mounted Smart Key, and a 48 + 13MP dual camera system you can flip back and forth for maximum versatility.
