The upcoming Asus ZenFone 6 smartphone has surfaced on popular benchmarking site AnTuTu and has managed to put out an impressive score in line with other Snapdragon 855-powered phones such as the Xiaomi Mi 9. The listing also indicates that the phone will offer a 6 GB/128 GB variant and will run on Android 9 Pie.

So far, news about the upcoming Asus ZenFone 6 smartphone have been in the form of leaked prototype images. We expected the phone to be announced at MWC 2019 like last year, but Asus preferred having an event of its own. So while the ZenFone 6 will be officially unveiled in Valencia on May 16, we are now getting to see its first scores on AnTuTu and it seems to confirm that the phone will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.

The ASUS_I01WD ZenFone 6 seems to have scored an excellent 363172 points, although it is somewhat lower than the Xiaomi Mi 9 Transparent Edition's score of 372072. The listing also shows that this ZenFone 6 variant comes with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage running Android 9 Pie. A Geekbench listing of the ZenFone 6 also surfaced recently and the phone seemed to manage scores of 3,527 in single-core and 11,190 in multi-core tests.

We still don't know the actual display size but the benchmark shows that the ZenFone 6 uses a 1080 x 2340 display. We've seen prototypes with a teardrop-shaped notch towards the right but Asus's official invite doesn't seem to indicate any such thing. This could mean an entirely notch-less display with a pop-up selfie camera, but that's just speculation for now.

The Asus ZenFone 5Z brought good value and performance to the affordable flagship segment, so naturally it has piqued the interest of both the tech press and consumers to see what Asus has in store this time around. Similar to the ZenFone 5Z, we expect the ZenFone 6 to be offered in multiple RAM and storage variants. It's success will ultimately depend on how it fends off competition from the likes of OnePlus and Xiaomi Poco.
