Fremont, California (June 29, 2021) — ASUS today launched Zenfone 8, the latest, fastest, and most compact generation of the innovative Zenfone smartphone family. Zenfone 8 is a high-performance 5.9-inch smartphone with a pocket-friendly design that's exceptionally easy to use and carry. It's also the proud recipient of a prestigious 2021 Red Dot Product Design Award, an award that recognizes high design quality.
Powered by the latest flagship Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 5G Mobile Platform, with Adreno™ 660 graphics, up to 16 GB RAM and 256 GB storage, the small size of Zenfone 8 belies the fact that it's also the most powerful Zenfone to date.
The fast and responsive 5.9-inch 120 Hz Samsung AMOLED display delivers smooth-scrolling, blur-free visuals, and is HDR10+ certified. For the ultimate protection, the display is covered with the latest and toughest Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™.
A powerful high-capacity 4000 mAh battery with a 30-watt HyperCharge adapter keeps Zenfone 8 going for longer, and there are several automatic battery modes in System Mode to allow users to optimize for battery life or performance as needed.
The professional-grade camera system in Zenfone 8 uses all-Sony sensors, and includes rear dual cameras with a 64 MP IMX686 wide-angle main camera and a 12 MP IMX363 ultrawide-angle secondary camera. The 12MP front punch-hole autofocus camera uses the latest IMX663 sensor, allowing users to take sharp and crisp selfies at any angles.
Zenfone 8 is a compact performer with premium looks, and it's designed to be supremely comfortable to hold and carry. Its dimensions and the new ZenUI 8 user interface are optimized for one-handed operation, and the lightweight, ultra-compact chassis features a 3D-curved back with a brand-new frosted-glass finish that aids grip and resists fingerprints.
