ASUS faced a crisis recently when Delhi High Court banned the company from releasing any product with the name ‘Zen’ in it. This ruling came after the indigenous smartphone maker, Zen Mobiles filed a petition. The decision couldn’t have come at a worse time, as the Taiwanese phonemaker was marketing the ASUS ZenFone 6 and was gearing up for the mega event. However, it didn’t deter ASUS as the company simply changed the phone’s name to ASUS 6z, and is all set to launch the smartphone in the country later today. The successor to last year’s popular ZenFone 5z comes as a massive upgrade and also brings the ground-breaking technology via the Flip Camera module.
