Asus has ready to launch their another flagship device in India it’s called Asus 6z



So finally wait is over, The Company finally confirmed the date of lauched of Asus 6Z. But this is the series of Zenfone, as we see recently some issue with Delhi high court on the sale of Zen and Zenfone branded products put some doubt over the phone’s India launch. But Asus has right to lauched their devices in India but not the name on Zen or Zenfone. As we know Asus has made the good market in India over the last couple of years.

So recently Asus had sent the media invites by the Taiwanese company and an updated microsite on Flipkart, the ZenFone 6 will be launched as the ‘Asus 6z’ in India on June 19.  But apart from the Asus doesn’t change the hardware, so it means all the hardware and features ” Asus 6Z”  will remain the same as the  Asus Zenfone 6. it means you have all the similar features as Zenfone 6.

So let’s talk about the Zenfone 5Z, As we know Zenfone 5z is also another flagship device by Asus. And Zenfone 5Z has done an amazing job in the India market, Often Zenfone 5Z is on top of the table in the flagship options in the market. Undoubtedly, Zenfone 5Z has awesome specifications at this price point. I have already reviewed the Asus Zenfone 5Z you can now.

So this is officially announced by Delhi high court Asus doesn’t launch their Zen And Zenfone Series phones in India as of now. So Asus has been coming up with the new name may be it’ new series ” Asus 6Z”.

So ponder is that what we expect the specifications in Asus 6Z. As we already told you Asus 6Z remain the same as the ZenFone 6. So you don’t have to worry about this Asus won’t cut any quality in their product. So come to the specifications, the phone packs a 6.4-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

And come to the vital part of Asus 6Z camera performance, because we accepted the lot from Asus in camera performance. because Asus has always first priority is a camera and the same as performance. The Asus offers has a motorised rotating camera module, which houses a 48-megapixel primary shooter with f/1.79 aperture accompanied by a 13-megapixel secondary ultra-wide-angle camera. The phone comes equipped with a large 5,000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology. Might be some change in the specifications but we clearly accepted these specifications what we share with you.

All in all, it’s doesn’t matter Asus has been coming with a new name. But I am absolutely sure we will get a much better device, Asus won’t let you down.

With the country-wide lockdown for reducing COVID-19 cases, many are now struggling with their productivity at home. Home Desktops or Laptops that were neglected for ages are now being used and overused every day. While some are gaming on it for days together, others are on edge with Work from Home workloads.

Customer Questions on hand, which you can answer as your own:

Why is my PC suddenly so slow?

Primary Solutions: (These can be your solutions that can be done Right away during the lockdown)

i.   Use the Disk Clean-Up for getting rid of Temp files
ii.   The disk can be full with the backups you took on your last working day. Manually Free some space first from the OS drive & keep backups on external drives.

iii.   You might have too many internet intensive apps working, which your home internet is struggling to manage. You might have to work with One software at a time.
iv.   If you are working with remote access, that’s an additional load on the home internet. Also, you might want to get all accesses from the server admin for better bandwidth.
I tried all these already, it doesn’t help. My PC still cannot manage the heavy files & Office softwares. This is last minute and low on Budget. Do I really HAVE to get a new PC/ Laptop ??

Solutions: (Can be Researched in the lockdown, ordered soon as it is lifted)

i.   If the bottleneck is in the hardware, there’s still no need to upgrade the entire system. Start with the low-cost ones – the RAM.

For ages, Kingston Technology has built an automated Memory Search feature on its website. This is the easiest part – to find compatible memory for your system.

Favourable pricing for a good portion of 2019 helped drive demand in the client space, enabling increased SSD-attach rates from the OEMs,” said Don Jeanette, vice president, TRENDFOCUS. “Moving forward through the rest of 2020, SSD-attach rates in PCs will remain strong, with continued strong demand for SATA SSD in various data centre deployments, as well as continued increases with Hyperscale buildouts for PCIe.”

The 2019 research findings from both analyst firms validate Kingston’s growing presence and position in the SSD market,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. “We continue to solidify our presence in the client space with strong SATA offerings as well as distinct NVMe solutions optimized for notebooks and desktops.
