ASUS ZenFone 6 gets ARCore, camera improvements, and June security patch

The ZenFone 6 marks the beginning of a new era for ASUS, as the company switched to an AOSP-inspired ROM for the phone — plus, it's generally a surprisingly good phone at a decent price with an interesting take on cameras. The device has already got a plethora of updates, and now that it's starting to become available in retail, it received yet another one that adds ARCore capability, further camera refinements, and the June 2019 Android security patch.

[Update: ZenFone 6 rebranded to 6z] ASUS can no longer sell phones under the ZenFone brand in India

ASUS's ZenFone line may not be popular stateside, but that's not the case in overseas markets. Unfortunately, it looks like the ZenFone phones may soon have to be completely rebranded in India. This is thanks to a lawsuit made by Telecare Network, which owns the trademarks "ZEN" and "ZENMOBILE" in the country.

ASUS Zenfone 6 review: A surprise flagship at a surprisingly low price

Last year's Asus Zenfone 5Z was an excellent phone with great hardware and an even better price point. The Zenfone 6, however, takes everything its predecessor did well and ups the ante with a wholly original design, powerful hardware, and a motorized flip-up camera, all while starting at $499 like the 5Z.

[Update: Max Pro M2] ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 and Max M2 get Android Pie

When ASUS started updating a few of its phones to Android Pie, it ran into issues for some models, including the Zenphone Max Pro M1 (ZB601KL) and Max M2 (ZB632KL).

Alleged Asus ZenFone 6 leak points to novel off-center notch

Last week, we saw some leaked images of purported Asus ZenFone 6 prototypes with various designs. The most interesting (or most alarming, depending on your outlook) showed a notch way over on the right side of the display.

Asus Zenfone 5Z review: As good as it is, buy a OnePlus 6 instead

When Asus announced the Zenfone 5 lineup at MWC, all eyes were fixed on the the king of the group, the 5Z. Fast forward almost six months and the phone is finally available to purchase at a mere $500 in the U.S. While the high-end Android flagship market is squarely controlled by Samsung, there's a curious middle ground between budget and top-tier devices. This "affordable flagship" space is heavily populated with offerings from OnePlus, Honor, and Xiaomi, but Asus has set its sights on a piece of that pie with the 5Z.

Asus Zenfone 5Q review: Pretty on the outside, but full of questionable decisions

At MWC, Asus showed off its 2018 Zenfone lineup. Most of the attention fell on the 5Z and 5, with their display notches and fresh designs. Perhaps left to the wayside was the lower-end device of this family, the Zenfone 5Q (or Lite, depending on where you are). It doesn't resemble its brethren whatsoever, right down to even lacking a notch.
