ASUS has just announced the all-new Zenfone 8 Series, comprising the super-compact Zenfone 8 and the photography-focused Zenfone 8 Flip.
Both the models boast flagship specs, with Snapdragon 888 CPUs, Samsung AMOLED displays with Delta-E <1 colour accuracy and HDR10+ certification, under-display fingerprint sensors, as well as refresh rates up to 120Hz for the Zenfone 8 (90Hz for the Zenfone 8 Flip).
The smaller Zenfone 8 is designed for one-handed use, and features a 5.9" display with a weight of just 169g. The camera setup comprises a 64MP 1/1.7" Sony IMX686 sensor as the main cam, along with an ultra-wide 12MP 1/2.55" Sony IMX383 sensor. On the front is a 12MP 1/2.93" Sony IMX 663.
It's protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus and comes with a 4,000mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 4.0 and PD charging. The dual-slot design accommodates 2 SIM cards but doesn't appear to allow expandable storage.
Zenfone 8 Flip
While the Zenfone 8 features a fixed rear dual-camera system, the Zenfone 8 Flip packs three cameras into a motorised flip-out module which ensures that your selfies look just as good.
It has an 8MP telephoto camera in addition to the same main and ultra-wide cams found on the Zenfone 8. There's no dedicated selfie cam, cause hey - you can just flip the entire camera module around!
The front is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6, and the battery capacity is larger at 5,000mAh. It also has triple-slots which support dual SIM and microSD storage up to 2TB.
As for other specs, both models feature an Adreno 660 GPU and utilises ZenUI 8 which is based on Android 11.
Both the Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip are available in silver and black.
