ASUS announced that its all-new Zenfone 8s are out powered by the latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform and the best 5G speeds you can milk out of the technology at the moment.

The 5.9-inch Zenfone 8 and the photography-focused 6.67-inch Zenfone 8 Flip have Samsung AMOLED displays with Delta-E <1 colour accuracy. Additionally, Zenfone 8's display has an ultrafast up to 120 Hz refresh rate. The displays also include in-display fingerprint sensors for convenient security.

Top-of-the-range Sony camera sensors are under the bonnet. Zenfone 8 has a fixed rear dual-camera system, while Zenfone 8 Flip features the innovative triple-camera Flip Camera, a motorised flip-up module that enables the same high-resolution photos and videos at both front and rear.

Zenfone 8 has a 3D-curved back with a new frosted glass finish for a more secure grip. Zenfone 8 is additionally the recipient of a 2021 Red Dot Product Design Award, awarded by an international jury in recognition of its outstanding design.

Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip use the latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform, built using a 5-nanometer process technology. This processor offers up to 25 per cent faster CPU performance and up to 35 per cent faster graphics rendering compared to the previous generation.

There is a 4000 mAh battery in Zenfone 8 and 5000 mAh in Zenfone 8 Flip. Advanced battery-care systems maximise battery lifespan, and the new System Mode in the ZenUI 8 operating system has a variety of automatic power-management modes that users can easily switch between depending on their needs, ranging from maximum performance to maximum battery life. Advanced manual configuration of power-saving parameters is possible.

Both Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip are equipped with bright, ultra-responsive Samsung AMOLED displays. Tuned in collaboration Pixelworks, the visual experience is enhanced with Delta-E <1 colour accuracy and DC Dimming technology. The displays are  HDR10+ certified to bring out the detail in even the darkest scenes. In-display fingerprint sensors make unlocking the phones simple and intuitive.

Zenfone 8 has a 120 Hz Samsung AMOLED display with a 1 ms response time for silky-smooth scrolling and blur-free visuals. The cinema-grade 112 per cent DCI-P3 color gamut brings videos and images to life, and the 1000-nits brightness allows easy outdoor readability. And to keep it looking great for longer, the display's protected by the latest and toughest-ever Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.

Zenfone 8 Flip has an all-screen, notch-free 90 Hz Samsung AMOLED NanoEdge display with vivid colours and smooth responsiveness.

Asus ZenFone 8 price starts at EUR 599, while Asus ZenFone 8 Flip carries a price tag of EUR 799
