Previous leaks have suggested the ZenFone 6 will adopt a notch-less display, although no actual renders of the phone have been leaked online so far. Along with the ZenFone 6, ASUS is expected to announce a few more smartphones at its launch event in Valencia, Spain on May 16.

Since the ASUS ZenFone 5z was launched as a direct rival to the OnePlus 6 last year, we can expect the ZenFone 6 to be pitted against the OnePlus 7. Both the ASUS ZenFone 6 and OnePlus 7 are likely to be significantly more affordable than flagship smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 Pro.
