Recommendation for a Swiss bank account for a non-resident Swiss citizen

Hi everyone,
I'm a Swiss citizen living abroad.
I have some cash in CHF lying around, which I'd like to be available when I visit Switzerland ~3 times a year.
I thought about opening a Swiss bank account in which I'll deposit the money and then withdraw when needed or use a debit card.
I was wondering which bank offers the best deal.
Summary of my needs:
1. Available for non-resident Swiss citizen.
2. Manage the account online, be it on a website or a mobile app.
3. Be able to withdraw cash.
3. Provide a debit card.
4. Low fees if any.
5. Preferably not requiring physical presence to open the account (i.e. open it online).
My Kanton is Zurich in case you have a local bank in mind.

Thanks a lot,
shala

The Organisation of Swiss Abroad says this on its website:


Banks that provide bank accounts for the Swiss abroad as well as their contact details and terms and conditions are listed at the following links:

I dont know if entirely 'online' is possible at all.
You can get in touch with any Swiss bank which has a branch in your current country of residence, and the can surely do it.
