Already this week, ASUS plans to formalize the new Zenfone 8 family, the first with IP68 certification, but also marks the return of the audio jack which will be able to count on a more interesting novelty from a compact top of the range. However, the renderings of the two hypothetical models could give us a more complete picture of what to expect.
for the first time 91 mobiles It advances with the premise that one of the models is called the Zenfone 8 Flip, and this model will be the one that has a photographic module to be placed, for a screen free of any interruptions, as we like.
It is not surprising (or perhaps surprising) that the design of the Zenfone 8 Flip is practically the same as that of the ASUS ZenFone 7 Pro, and we have to look closely to find the differences. Not surprisingly, the ASUS photography app has succeeded for two generations and in a winning team that does not move, but surprisingly, it is not unusual for the brand to go over a year in updating its design. Suddenly, it looks like the biometric reader will now be on the screen, rather than the lock key getting a new color.
So, perhaps the biggest news is the arrival of the Snapdragon 888 in the family. Other features of Zenfone 8 Flip include a 6.67 FHD AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The cameras will be a 64MP module, 8MP ultra wide angle camera and a 12MP macro camera. This is the same setup as the 7 Pro.
And like the Zenfone 7 Pro, the battery will also have a 5000 mAh battery with a 30W charge.
As for ASUS Zenfone 8 Mini, the Main Compact, it looks like this will actually be the base model and will simply be called Zenfone 8. This model will have an unusual screen for current times, only 5.92 ″ diagonal, and since there is no space for a positionable unit, the screen appears to be AMOLED with a hole in the top left for the camera Anterior.
On the back cameras we seem to have lost the phone, but the other two stayed and the battery also drops to 4,000 mAh with a 30W charging. The processor should be the same as Snapdragon 888 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Note that this will be the confirmed model with an audio jack.
