Why asa’s zenfone 8 will be nothing like you expect. For starters, the companies got a pretty good idea of how much you loved their flip camera phones. I mean i remember, reading all your comments about the seven and guys i flipped so much support, obviously that’s something asus’s team realized on their own too, and is planning to give you three options. This year, three zenfone 8 phones to choose from a pro possibly a vanilla and a mini. Well, they called it compact, but let’s go with mini, and you know what i found out more about the mini than the pro what’s. Even more interesting is that asus decided to tease their unveiling event with a message that puts the compact in focus and the cutout of what supposedly that phone’s body. So what does that tell us that the zenfone 8 mini is actually a big deal for asus they’re? Putting all their bets on this version and, like i said no wonder, users are going bananas about mini phones. You’Ve got your oneplus nord buyers, your iphone 12 mini fans. By the way we talked about the iphone 13 mini last week. Make sure you check it out if you haven’t seen it yet so, like i said, oneplus and apple are coming out with midi smartphones. Sony is known for doing that, and even google is keeping their pixel a line alive. I just saw some pixel 5a leaks, the other day there’s. No doubt we found our smartphone sweet spot, the specs of a flagship in the body of a compact at a reasonable price and guess what zenfone 8 mini is about to check them.
All really asus could sell this year, an all around better zenfone than last year’s and that’s. Quite the feat, as you all know, how are they planning to do that from what i can tell it’s, all about cutting down the excess and adding performance on top, so 0.8 mini is going to go from the 6.6 inch ish, something to a 5.9 inch size. That’S roughly how much an iphone 12 measures so a bit bigger than the iphone 12 mini, but zenfone 8 will be slightly smaller than the pixel 5a, so there’s that the screen is going to be oled for sure with wait for it. A 120 hertz refresh rate something we’ve seen top notch devices sporting this year, so a real treat for a compact, because the mini will most likely carry the flip mechanical camera. No zenfone has gone without since the 6th you’re gon na enjoy a notch free whole free display, with no bezels inside either that’s, still a big win yeah even in 2021, because most phones have their displays interrupted by selfie camera cutouts sure many are looking to fix. It by putting the front shooter under the display but that’s a whole other endeavor, so asus has got a great thing going for them with this mechanical solution. Now, because we’re teasing the camera there’s something else, you should know there’s a big chance that this mini will get major applause for one thing: sony’s imx 663 sensor, one that’s not out yet so it could make this compact zenfone, 8, the first to sport, it this One’S joined by a 64 megapixel sony imx 686, which is likely gon na serve at the main camera.
Are we looking at a triple camera or quad like the zenfone 8 pro is about to be couldn’t, say for sure. What i can say is that, overall, the difference between this mini baby phone and the mighty pro is gon na be super small, like they are gon na share the same snapdragon, 880 processor and even the same memory or better. That sounds crazy, but guys benchmarks are showing 16 gigs for the mini and just eight on the pro. Personally, i find that hard to believe, but i guess we’ll know for sure. In a couple of weeks on may 12th, the cat’s gon na be out of the bag. Battery and charging will also be confirmed. Although i’d say that five thousand milliamp hour cell is a safe bet and a 30 watt charging is in the cart, don’t care too much about the size, then go for the zenfone 8 pro okay. So what are we thinking here? 700. 800. I don’t think asus is gon na shoot for more given the situation we’re still struggling with, plus most phone makers have cut their prices, knowing that okay yeah phones are important, but man. How can priorities change when the world’s on fire? How do you feel about the zenfone 8? Could this phone become the best mini around best compact android of 2021?
