The next flagship device from the giant Taiwanese house promises to be large in performance but small in size - and it will also have another that will keep the camera upside down
Did you miss the time when you could find plenty of advanced smartphones with screens of less than 6 inches? It is doubtful that this era is on the way to a comeback, but there seem to be at least a few actresses who continue to think of the nostalgic audience with scaled-down models who are trying to maintain the full range of modern capabilities required in the field. Sony has the intriguing Xperia 5 III, סמסונג Provided us with theGalaxy The standard S21 - and soon we're supposed to have an official show for theZenFone 8 of Asus, Which will probably be even smaller than both.
Asus has scheduled an official press event on May 12, next Wednesday, with a countdown and an official statement that leaves no room for doubt about its intentions - to launch a pair of new "standard" flagship devices that will strengthen its offering alongside The glorious ROG Phone 5 for gaming. The standard Zenfone 8 based on photos and information leaked by those who do not want to wait until next week, is intended to offer consumers a 5.92-inch Super AMOLED screen, with a resolution of 2,400 × 1,080 pixels, a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz and also chip Snapdragon 888 Senior and leading from home Qualcomm.
The Zenfone 8 will offer a system Android 11 with ZenUI extension above, stereo speakers, built-in optical fingerprint scanner under the display panel, storage 3.1GB UFS 128 by default (with expandable option), memory 5GB LPDDR8, connectivity Wi-Fi 6 dual channels, built-in 4,000mAh battery with fast 30 watt charging and a relatively basic photo array with a 64-megapixel main sensor with optical stabilization, a 12-megapixel sensor from one secondary and a single selfie camera inside a small 'hole' socket - all in the body with weight Of about 170 grams and a rare height of less than 150 millimeters, along with an equally rare width of about 68.5 millimeters.
It's not the most impressive or special device we've encountered in 2021 (and there will be some that will probably provide much tougher descriptions for this aspect of the Zenfone 8) - but its dimensions make it an intriguing 'mini' product - while the spec description gives us hope in addition to being This is one of the modelsSnapdragon 888 most competitive in the area.
The Zenfone 8 Flip that will be launched alongside the miniature model will be a flagship in more typical dimensions, with the same trick as we got from the pair of Zenfone 7 models last year (and also in Zenfone 6 earlier) - a mechanical main photo array that rotates 180 degrees and replaces The need for selfie cameras. This version will offer a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2,400 × 1,080 pixels (no defect at all) and a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz, chip Snapdragon 888, generous 3.1GB UFS 256 storage, 8GB dynamic memory, Android 11, dual speakers, chip NFC, connectivity Wi-Fi 6, Fingerprint scanner Below the screen and a built-in 5,000mAh battery with a 30-watt charge that should fully return capacity within about an hour and a half of connection to the socket.
The triangular photo array in this model will include the same 64-megapixel sensor with optical stabilization as inZenFone 8, the same secondary 12-megapixel sensor (ostensibly intended for macro photography) and in addition an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor with optical stabilization for close-up of 3 times compared to the main unit - all of which will of course be used for both "standard" and selfies.
Strange, great - or a little of both? Expect more updates in the coming days, and in the meantime tell us what you think.
