Watch the Asus Zenfone 8 lineup announcement live

12 May 2021
We expect two devices - a compact Zenfone 8 and a Zenfone 8 Flip.

Sort by:

Is there going to be a Pro version? Pro Lite version? Like the 8 but with larger display, with headphone jack, OIS camera? I'm fine with throwing away the flip and downgrading the chipset to keep the price lower. So that I can get something like Samsung A52 but with a "fantastic" camera.

bit more aggressive screen to body ratio would be better.
4000 mAh is not enough, 500 more could be justified.
the price range demands one more camera, telephoto lens is lacking i think in this price segment.

this a good compact phone but not the best in class!

Not gonna lie, from hardware perspective, it's great device. I just wish ASUS would step up the software part. It's really what's keeping their phones from being really desirable. And I'm not talking functionality, just long term support. I'd actually like this one coz it has no display interruption and I'd just never flip it over since I just don't do selfies, finally in-display fingerprint scanner, large battery. Would prefer frosted back like on smaller model, but oh well. But knowing ASUS is really slow with software and not really committed at doing it long term, I'd be hesitating.

Whatever the initial price of the mini will be, in autumn it will be around €500.~ so just chill people

Tricky market I say... IPhone mini is below £589 in UK already in many places so for the Asus to win over customers have to go below that which is going to be a challenge.

Standby for an utterly ludicrous price tag that makes the Zenfone was appealing as acne.

chris1998, 12 May 2021I mean the ZF7 was 700. Zefone 6 was £500It is still way lower than an iPhone 12 Pro that starts at over $1600 here for a notched screen

Rkm, 12 May 2021That was reasonable compared to other flagships, weren'... moreThat was a genuine question, I actually don't remember the 7 situation.

But, Snapdragon 888 has heating issues, therefore thermal throttling, so i would go for iqoo 7 or mi 11x. If they release a sd 870 model that would be lovely!
