Announcement. ASUS Zenfone 8 Flip is a hefty flagship with a triple PTZ camera

Simultaneously with the compact ASUS Zenfone smartphone8, ASUS has announced a whopper called ASUS Zenfone 8 Flip. In fact, this is an upgrade from last year's Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro. With the same main feature - a triple PTZ camera, which simultaneously serves as a rear camera and a front, front camera.

In some ways, ASUS Zenfone 8 Flip looks even moreflagship than ASUS Zenfone 8. He, for example, has a telephoto. But, alas and ah, there is no optical stabilization. And, unfortunately, the protection against dust and moisture was not delivered either. But the rest of the device is just a handsome man!

The chipset is naturally one and onlyQualcomm Snapdragon 888 with its eight hundred thousand parrots in AnTuTu9. There is a lot of memory, 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of permanent. Suddenly there is support for memory cards.

The screen is hefty, 6.67 ″. AMOLED-matrix with a resolution of 1080 × 2400 (395 ppi). HDR10 +, Gorilla Glass 6, glove support. The refresh rate is up to 90 Hz.

The battery is already familiar with a capacity of 5000 mAh. Fast charging is fast, but not very fast at 30W. No wireless charging visible.

The camera block, as you remember, is rotary. The main camera has a resolution of 64 MP. Next to it are a 12 MP wide-angle camera and an 8 MP telephoto camera - they promise a threefold optical zoom.

NFC is there, 5G is, Wi-Fi - according to the latest fashion - 6e. What is missing is standard audio output. The fingerprint scanner, unfortunately, is hidden under the screen.

The smartphone has already been issued to reviewers.True, obviously not in such a large number as ASUS Zenfone 8. But there are already several reviews in English. I hide a few pieces under the cat. The full list, as usual, can be found on our website on the phone page.
