Asus ZenFone 6 was launched in Spain last week, and now the Taiwanese computing giant is getting to ready to release the phone in India. The phone has been listed on e-retailer Flipkart. A dedicated page for the Asus ZenFone 6 has been set up on the e-retailer, which shows it as ‘coming soon’. The biggest highlight of the phone is its flip camera module that becomes a selfie shooter whenever required, thus eliminating the need of a separate front camera setup altogether.

The dedicated page for the Asus ZenFone 6 on Flipkart lists all the key features and specifications of the phone. The page claims that the phone will arrive soon in India. Flipkart is not taking registrations of interest as of yet, but that button should go live once the launch date is revealed.

To recall, the Asus ZenFone 6 price starts at EUR 499 (roughly Rs. 39,100) for the 6GB + 64GB variant, while the 6GB + 128GB version will retail at EUR 559 (roughly Rs. 43,800), and finally, the top-end 8GB + 256GB variant is priced at EUR 599 (roughly Rs. 47,000).
