The Asus Zenfone 8 Flip model has a 6.7-inch AMOLED display, rotatable triple camera module, Snapdragon 888 chipset, powerful sound system, 5000mAh battery.
Asus’ Zenfone 7 model with rotatable camera was highly appreciated and found a chance again this year. Apart from the chipset, the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip model, which we did not see much of an upgrade on the hardware side, seems not to keep the price very affordable.
Asus Zenfone 8 Flip features and price
The 6.7-inch Full HD + AMOLED screen remains in the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip . Thanks to the rotatable camera, the front panel is almost frameless. On the screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz, there is a 200Hz touch sampling rate. While the screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 6, it reaches a brightness level of 700 nits. The fingerprint reader is integrated into the screen.
Powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset, the smartphone offers 8GB LPDDR5 RAM memory and 128GB / 256GB UFS 3.1 storage memory. The 5000mAh capacity battery is supported by 30W HyperCharge. QC 4.0 and USB PD support are also available.
Each of the dual stereo speakers is supplemented by NXP TFA9874 mono booster. Thanks to DIRAC Research technology, the sound quality is greatly improved. 3 different functions can be assigned to the blue special button on the side.
The main camera has a 64 MP Sony IMX686 sensor but no OIS and it can record 8K 30fps video. The 12 MP Sony IMX363 sensor offers ultra-wide angle, while the 8MP OmniVision sensor can zoom 3x. The camera slot is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The rotatable mechanism is controlled by an angle sensor.
The model does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack, and features features such as WiFi 6E, aptX Adaptive. Although it is not much different from the ZenFone 8 model on paper, a price tag of 800 Euros was determined.
