How to pre order and buy a ZenFone 6 (2019) ZS630KL

Update July 19: USA pre order date has moved…one day earlier to midnight ET July 31. The 8GB/256GB units at various ASUS Europe online stores have now sold out! More information on the US/Canada pre order date details here. Disappointingly, Amazon stores in most countries are still in limbo without units. Even at mid-July, it’s still a guessing game right now for other countries because a lack of stock means a very selective launch schedule. If you are frustrated (like us) waiting for wider availability, the wait is likely over soon. Why give up now after waiting it out to this point? The 5,000mAh battery makes it worth the wait in our opinion!

Since launch, we have been tracking various pre-order opportunities across many markets and many retailers. If you hear something, please let us know via email. We post pre-order information as we get it. If you want availability updates emailed to you, please sign-up for our newsletter here. Remember to check your junk/trash folder though as sometimes newsletter emails can get missed and filtered as spam. If you are wondering why the delays for buying a ZenFone 6, we discuss the situation here.

Where can I buy the Twilight Silver color version of the ZenFone 6?

At the time of writing (June 10) there is no stock availability of the Twilight Silver color ZenFone 6. There is a reason however. The production of Twilight Silver takes more time than the Midnight Black. Expect stock to show up soon, expect limited stock and fast sell-outs. We recommend you act quickly and buy or pre-order right away.

How does this pricing compare to the competition like say, the OnePlus 7 Pro?

  • 6GB/128GB: $669 USD – 699/709€
  • 8GB/256 GB: $699 USD – 749/759€
  • 12GB/256GB: $749 USD – 819/829€

How does this pricing compare to the Google Pixel 3a XL?

  • 64GB – $479 USD

What versions of the ZenFone 6 (ZS630KL) will be available in the US and Canada?

  • The 6GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB models will be available in North American markets (US and Canada)

What is this newly announced ZenFone 6 Edition 30? Where can I buy it and when will it be available?

The ZenFone 6 Edition 30 is a variant of the ZenFone 6 that ASUS announced as part of their 30-year anniversary. This model has 12GB of RAM, 256GB storage, a 30-month warranty, and a differently designed rear. Only 3,000 units will be produced. No pricing or availability has been announced so far.

What network bands will the North America variant of the ZenFone 6 have?

  • Just like previous generations of ZenFone models, expect the typical networks to be compatible. As ASUS states about network compatibility in the US, “This device is not compatible with CDMA Networks such as: Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular.” As for Canada, here is what ASUS says: “Compatible with GSM Networks including Rogers, Bell, Telus, Wind, Fido, Virgin, Koodo and cellular network providers utilizing GSM network.” Here are a couple charts to sort out the US and Canada compatibility:

  • ZS630KL-S855-6G128G-SL

At the unveiling event, when it came to the price announcement? Crickets. Yep, it’s true. The reality is ASUS no longer feels the need to join that race to the bottom. They did say the strategy moving forward was towards “power users” and with that quest comes a fully packed ZenFone 6.

It’s too soon to say pricing in USD or CAD. The straight conversions are NOT ACCURATE so don’t believe a lot of estimations that people will be throwing around. During the unveiling event, ASUS stated something along the lines of “at least we didn’t increase the price”. That indicates the ZenFone 6 should fall in line with the previous ZenFone 5Z pricing.

A curious point that we’ve noticed is that Europe is first up whereas ASUS has always been about Asia first when it comes to ZenFone launches. Imagine the miracle if North America was getting some pre order opportunities before September, October or November! The paltry release dates for North America have to end. Starting now!

    Hi, any idea when Asus Zenfone 6 will be available in Singapore? 🙁
    Thanks.

    • DojoFR June 26, 2019 at 5:28 am #

      This launch is ttly fu**ed up…. Small stock, no info on availability, only the 6/64 at the launch…
      “Did Asus learned from the past?”
      no !
      We are Jun 26th, France, I want to buy the 8/256 what I have to do ?
      – Wait 2 more weeks (2 monthes after launch are not so far)
      – impossible to pay in x time, Asus italy propose it for exemple, but not fr one, I called the hotline, they don’t know why (and they don’t know when the 12/512 anniversary will be available…)
      – no pre order goodies, even a voucher for the Asus shop

      I’m close to just buy the 6/64 on rakuten… Or just forget about it and go on another one very frustrating

    Where can I buy online if I’m based in the Middle East precisely in Abu Dhabi UAE? It looks impossible to get it here

    • Admin July 1, 2019 at 9:42 pm #

      Can you offer any insight for previous ZenFone models like the 5z? Where was it usually available? Any store names, links, etc will help. We can dig around but extra info from previous ZenFone releases for that area will help. Thanks!

  3. VR July 8, 2019 at 10:20 pm #

    Can you also add info related to countries like Australia & New Zealand.

    • Admin July 9, 2019 at 3:24 am #

      Thanks for the suggestion. Great idea and we will try to get info and post it as well.
