Anonymous, 18 May 2022Could go smaller still. Around S10E Size. That would be great.For the specs i mentioned I don't think it would be possible to fit all that in a 5.8" smartphone except maybe it's 12mm thick which is just absurd

    The flip line should be leading the market right now. People keep paying for form and not function. Samsung have let us down.

        Asus should stick to their gaming phones ROG nd continue this idea of a small flagship maybe even if at 6.1"

        According to me the Zenfone 9 for 2022 should be
        -Display; 6.1" FHD nd above, ltpo 120hz,12bit panel,1000nits and above,hdr10+ nd dolby vision hdr

        -chip; Qualcomm snapdragon 8 gen 1+

        -storage;128gb,256gb,512gb,1tb with all 12gb RAM

        -battery;4500mah if possible nd shuld hav a GSM endurance rating of 95h nd above

        -camera:12mp 1/1.3" wide, 12mp 3x optical zoom telephoto, 12mp ultrawide with PDAF also with pro enhanced consistent computational photography

        Selfie;12mp 1/3" with PDAF

        -change the design of the Zenfone 9(the 8 is crap)

        -0 to 100% under 1 hour fast charging

        -vid;4k@120,4k on all cameras also with pro enhanced consistent computational videography

        Hope it's posible

            Between Asus and Sony, These are the last 2 brands sticking to their guns and running w/ innovative design and approaches. Nothing compels me to get a samsung or iphone or anything else these days. More companies ought to be more creative. This is the final frontier of phone innovation ~

Sure they can update some modules like WebView, but I don't get it why they can't update core features this way. One could argue why Apple doesn't do it either and you instead need to install full updates, but if they are at least offered, I don't really see an issue. I wouldn't mind doing full updates on Android if I'd at least get them. Instead some components are updates by Google via GooglePlay and the rest is entirely down to actual phone maker/vendor which are all lazy and greedy, so they simply don't provide them either at all or for very short time.

                    SShock, 17 May 2022"...you can go to Settings > System and tap System ... moreGoogle somehow able to push Nearby Sharing function to almost all Android device whether it's on old Android 8 or latest Android 12 via Play Services but can't provide security updates and Android updates through that way it's so dumb

                      "...you can go to Settings > System and tap System updates - maybe you get lucky."

                      Would be nice if updating Android phones didn't feel like playing a slot machine... Why can Apple release iOS to entire world on same day while all other companies take weeks and months to seed updates to users. I'm so fed up with that on Android phones. Even Samsung which has the best software support and is anything but small company does this nonsense too. And it's not even auto update that gets seeded this way, it's the same if oyu manually check for an update. It just won't show up if you live in a "wrong" region until they decide you're worthy. :/

                        Glad to see these devices getting updated as many big brands this year launched their new phones with older android 11 versions... So software side almost every one is lacking... But Asus should seriously consider improving their software update... They should hire the developers working on the pixel rom of asus phones as they are doing an excellent job on the software side... Asus should also give 3-4 yrs of quick OS updates on all their phones....

Samsung is like #1 smartphone maker in android space when it comes to revenue and sales volume. They also have a dedicated team of thousands working on the software.

                                While for Asus, it's just a side business. Still their update policy is on par with OnePlus and Motorola (even better in some cases). Nonetheless, those two Zenfone 7 users would be really happy to get the update. Hopefully Asus can ramp up the availability this time around.
