Asus Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip smartphones announced

    Asus has introduced two new smartphones under the Zenfone series through an online launch event. While the Asus Zenfone 8 offers flagship-level specifications in a rather small package, the 8 Flip comes with the flippable primary camera setup as was earlier seen on the Zenfone 7 series.

    The Zenfone 8 features a 5.9-inch AMOLED screen (three big cheers for small screen enthusiasts) with a resolution of 2400×1800 pixels. The primary camera on the device is a dual-lens setup (64MP + 12MP ultrawide). There is no telephoto lens. The front camera is a 12MP shooter sitting snugly in a punch hole notch.

    The device is powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. The smartphone comes with up to 16GB RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. With a 4,000mAh battery, the device supports 5G networks. The device misses out on wireless charging but offers water and dust resistance.

    This device may be termed as the true successor of the Zenfone 7 series since the same flip camera setup is carried forward from the predecessor. As a result, there is no dedicated selfie camera since the primary camera flips above the phone to double as a front shooter. The benefit? No ugly notch, and an additional 8MP lens offering 3x optical zoom.

    The device comes with a bigger 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2400×1800 pixels. It is powered by the same Snapdragon 888 chipset and comes with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of storage. The bigger display also gets a bigger battery – 5,000mAh. There is no wireless charging here as well, but this one also misses out on the IP rating for water and dust resistance.

    Pricing and availability

    The Zenfone 8 starts from €599 (₹53,200 approx.) for the base variant. Its Flip counterpart begins selling at €799 (₹71,000 approx.).
