ASUS’ fixes the notch in a weird way

The display notch has been one of the most talked about features in the world of smartphones since the past two years. While Apple couldn't fix it due to the hardware it packs in the latest iPhones, and Samsung has been avoiding it completely with uniform bezels, every other manufacturer has adopted the notch for an nearly edge-to-edge display. In a new twist on the design, the ASUS Zenfone 6 has appeared in a leaked photo sporting a corner notch.

An Italy-based site called has leaked images of what it believes to be the final build of the Asus ZenFone 6.

What's your take on this new notch style? Now, if we flip the phone around, you will notice something rather odd here as well, a notch that is placed in the upper right portion of the phone's display, and that notch houses the phone's front-facing camera. The clock as well as all the app icons on the bar gets the full space, similar to any non-notched display design. The phone's display sports rounded corners as well, as you can see. There will also be a face scanning technology, likely the standard Face Unlock, given the small size of the unorthodox notch, leaving no room for 3D infrared sensors. The display camera hole approach seems to be becoming more and more popular, as a number of smartphone manufacturers seem to be planning to implement it in the near future.

We also see a small black particle below the dual cameras which might be a weird fingerprint scanner but could also be the PDAF sensor, while the reader could go under the display.

Rest of the Zenfone 6's design seems to be pretty inspired by the OnePlus 6. On the bottom, the handset has a speaker grill, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
