Taiwanese tech company Asus has teased the first look at its upcoming flagship phone: the Zenfone 8, in a video online. With the Zenfone 8, Asus seems to have ditched its signature flip camera module and gone with a punch-hole camera instead. The company may also have plans to integrate a high refresh rate display. The Zenfone 8 will be unveiled on May 12. The phone is touted to be compact in size and big on performance. Asus also shared this on their Twitter handle.
The smartphone maker had first introduced the flip camera design with the Asus 6Z, an innovation that was well-received. The flip camera setup had two sensors that worked as both rear and front cameras and also made for a full-screen experience with the device. The flip camera had a 48MP main sensor with Dual LED Flash, f/1.79 aperture and a 13MP secondary camera with a 125-degree ultra-wide lens and f/2.4 aperture.
The Zenfone 7 came armed with a flip camera setup with triple camera sensors. The smartphone came equipped with a 64MP primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a 12MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture and an 8MP camera. While the company launched the 6Z in India, it didn’t bring the Zenfone 7 to India. Now, we have to wait for May 12 to get more clarity on the Zenfone 8’s India launch.
