Alleged ASUS Zenfone 6/6Z Gets EEC Certification Ahead of May 16 Launch in Spain

ZenFone 6

The upcoming ASUS flagship smartphone, believed to be called the ZenFone 6, was recently spotted on the Geekbench and AnTuTu benchmark databases. An alleged variant of the ZenFone 6 has now been certified by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC).

ZenFone 6/6Z Certified by EEC?

The EEC has certified the ZS630KL variant of an upcoming ASUS smartphone. Since one of the variants of the current ASUS ZenFone 5Z bears the model number ZS620KL, there is a possibility of ZS630KL being a variant of its successor. That said, the variant that had been caught on AnTuTu and Geekbench carried the model number “I01WD”. So we have no concrete evidence currently to link the ZS630KL model number to the ZenFone 6 or ZenFone 6Z. In case the ZS630KL is indeed a variant of the ZenFone 6 or ZenFone 6Z, we can expect it to be certified by a few other agencies globally within the next few weeks.

Based on the previous leaks, the ASUS ZenFone 6 is expected to have a 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor running under its hood, coupled with 6GB of RAM. On the software front, it will run on the latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box, likely running ASUS’ custom Android skin on top. Its other key hardware specifications, however, have not been revealed yet. Apart from the ZS630KL, the Eurasian Economic Commission has certified a few other unannounced smartphones as well.

1) Redmi M1903F10G: Apart from the Redmi branding, there is nothing else that is known regarding this device currently.

2) OPPO CPH1979: OPPO CPH1979 is another upcoming device that the EEC has certified today. Just like the Redmi M1903F10G, however, no other information regarding the phone is available right now.

3) Vivo 1907: Vivo 1907 could be an upcoming mid-range Android smartphone from the Chinese smartphone maker, although we cannot be completely sure due to the lack of information.
