"a smooth display with a punch hole"
So it is not smooth.

"have an IP68 rating, meaning the Zenfone 8 will be waterproof and dustproof"
IP rating is NOT water/dustPROOF, it is water/dustRESISTANT, and it is a MASSIVE difference!

I'd give away IP rating on my phone for a Klondike bar, so for the awesome privacy-friendly flip up I wouldn't think twice.

Gandalf, 03 May 2021Asus killed what made Zenphone special, what would make any... moreThe size probably. I'm quite curious about this device tbh! Love the size of the Pixels, but the S21 is just a bit too big, so i hope they can make it smaller than the s21.

Thrilled to wait for the release have an Asus Zenfone pro 7. Really like it!!
I hope the flip camera is still available in the 8 pro serie else it's no Zenfone for me anymore.

🥱🥱

Also haven't seen anything about SD card support, but lately companies just wanna do away with it. Hard compromise to make for a heavy music listener like me.

A more "regular" device but still somehow different because too few do smaller devices now.. doesn't seem too many compromises so far.. even has the jack as mentioned.. i quite like Zenui too.

  • Woohoo

All this will go down the drain if they become like 1+ and price it similarly as flagships.
Really hope they stick with their premium flagship-killer range.

Olym1mk2, 03 May 2021If only it used flagship hardware and better os build, it w... moreI expect:

- same design of Zen7, but with screen hole
- base version 8/128GB
- SD888 for all models
- IP68 (not sure if all them)
- earphone jack is confirmed
- probably FHD@120 HDR oled from Samsung
- Goriila Glass 5 rear /6 on screen
- 5000mAh for biggest model
- looks like 30W is gonna be used
- imx686 as main camera

abitcuriousabitgeek, 03 May 2021Sounds like the series is a rival to ZTE Axon 30 Series. Ok... moreHow about the flip camera? Instead of the useless selfie camera.

Sounds like the series is a rival to ZTE Axon 30 Series. Okay, let's see what we will they bring. They already got an advantage over them: IP rating.

I mean Sony Xperia 5 is maybe an alternative too but they always start off hella expensive
