Asus Zenfone 9 unveiled: still small, but faster, longer lasting and with a better camera

28 July 2022
There is no larger Flip model, at least not this year. But for fans of small phones, this is one of the few Android flagship options.

    This phone reminds me of my Redmi 4 prime of 2017.

      Small phone seekers in india left high and dry again!
      Asus cannot launch this without rebranding in india, due to zenfone trademark issue. It has all the potential to capture the completely vacant segment of small android phones. India has no standard models at 6” category. I had to dump android for this!!!

        DMX, 28 Jul 2022I have man hands, not imitation man hands... Hands that can... morenot everyone have the same hand size as you. also compact size with flagship specs is rare. you usually found them with low end mediatek.
        also if you think 6.7 inch is small for you, then you should get an ipad mini to take calls.

          Anonymous, 28 Jul 2022Only 2 updates for a flagship? What a joke... Even Samsung ... morejust because asus offer 2-3 year update does not mean the device would die once it reached its final period. samsung midrangers are bulky for some people. yet it offers 4-5 year update. mostly people would change phones every 2 years even samsung offers long update period.

              Actually looks good, even the tech specs. But expensive, at least for me

                Unb1453d, 28 Jul 2022Having first "beta" developers release installed ... moreIf you say that, but then you complain that you don't want to upgrade your $300 cell phone, it doesn't make you superior here or anywhere.

                  DMX, 28 Jul 2022I have beta 4 and I see no difference between whether it wa... moreHaving first "beta" developers release installed on your phone and your egotistical size of hands and ego don't make you superior here.

                    Miss the sdcard slot. All good, with compact size which is a rarity these days, jack, charger, bundled case. Although the price itself and the updates cycle are a total dealbreaker for some.

                      DMX, 28 Jul 2022You live in a bubble, get out of it!! who wants a phone for... moreU sound really pathetic tbh, always bragging about your phone size and your hands. Clearly this particular phone, is NOT for u. Wake up! Go play with your pixel or something else. Troll.

                        Anonymous, 28 Jul 2022Did they abandoned the flip model ? I think they MIGHT release a 9 Flip eventually when sales for the ROG 6 phones die down - key word, might. It could be possible that Asus has stopped caring about flip cameras, but we'll see what happens.

                          DMX, 28 Jul 2022You live in a bubble, get out of it!! who wants a phone for... moreWell, this is just narcissistic. There are many people out there with small hands, just because you have big hands doesn't mean everyone else on the planet does.
                          If you want a big phone, just get a big phone and don't complain about smaller phones existing.
                          Also, calling shorter people / people with smaller hands 'midgets' doesn't make you seem like a good person to be around either.

                            Anonymous, 28 Jul 2022Did they abandoned the flip model ? Unfortunately they did. I had the Zenfone 6, and was hoping for an upgrade. But it looks like nothing is in sight. 8 flip had garbage specs. So I'll move elsewhere.

                              For a flagship, I expect it to have a tele camera.

                              And if there's no mSD storage extension, I expect there are options for 512GB and 1TB.

                              Why oh why Asus???

                                  A handy phone with all the features along with a case and charger in box.
                                  Asus is not following industry and giving people the absolute best.

                                  I had an old phone of theirs and they fixed a bug reported by me so their support is also good.

                                    woah woah woah pinch me i must be dreaming.... A charger in the box and a 3.5mm headphone jack

                                      €800 for the base model? No, thx…
