It looks like smartphone manufacturers are working really hard to get a better place for housing the front cameras and the sensors so they can achieve a larger and full view display for users. Recently Nubia launches its latest smartphone called the Nubia X with dual-screen which works as the second screen and can also be used to take selfies using the rear camera, mean no need to feature that ugly looking Notch at the front. I think Nuba has gone very smartly in this regard and have used a pretty solid solution to remove the Notch from the display.
Now a new video of the upcoming Asus Zenfone 6 has been leaked which show the device to come with an Off-Center Display Notch. In the video, the device also appears to have a dual vertically staged cameras with LED flashlight. However, we didn’t find a solid proof of the existence of a fingerprint sensor at the back, maybe Asus would go with an Under-Display fingerprint sensor this time like the recently launched OnePlus 6T, Oppo K1, Vivo X23, Vivo V11 Pro etc.

The Asus Zenfone 6 appears to have a higher screen to body ratio with very low bezels on the sides. There appears to be a front speaker placed at the top of the display. At the bottom, the device features a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and bottom speakers. The major design change we find here is the front camera placement on the device.
Xiaomi, Lenovo and Honor have also gone with their own way to remove the Notch by introducing the Slider back panel on its recently launched Mi Mix 3, Lenovo Z5 and Honor Play 2 which house the front cameras and the sensors at the front on the back panel.
Samsung is also reportedly working on its next Galaxy device which is most likely to bet the Galaxy S10 and the device will feature under-display front cameras and sensors.
Expected Price and Availability
There is no official announcement about its pricing and the final launch as yet, however, we expect it the device to be announced at MWC 2019 next year, but we are not hundred percent sure about that as well.
