Asus phones are popular among gamers in 2020. Zenfone 6 was the first smartphone from Asus that featured a flip camera and was also spotted in the Zenfone 7 series. The company is launching Zenfone 8 series soon bringing Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 flip smartphones. And as per the information disclosed in the market, Zenfone 8 Flip will be retaining the flip camera from this series. In this post, we will talk about the specs, availability, and expected price of the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip in Nepal.
Asus Zenfone 8 Flip Overview
Display and Design
Zenfone 8 Flip comes with a 6.67 inches Super AMOLED panel that has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The 120 Hz refresh rate is dropped to 90Hz in the Flip variant which is unpleasing to the device of this price range. However, it provides stunning visuals with world-beating color accuracy. The screen also comes with an HDR10+ certification- enjoy every little detail even in the dark night. Also, it is protected by the toughest ever Corning Gorilla Victus glass. The DC Dimming technology will cut out the harmful blue light to avoid your eyes from straining even on heavy gaming for hours.
The phone has not gone through many upgrades in terms of design. Design-wise it is bulkier and heavier than the standard Zenfone 8 with a thickness measuring 9.6mm and 230 grams weight. And talking about the most highlight about this device, like other Zenfone series phones, Zonefone 8 flip withholds the Flip camera- enjoys every shot! It has got an appealing design that looks equally powerful and premium with the ‘ASUS Zenfone’ labeling perfectly smashed at the
back. The LED flash is embedded within the same camera module. The Motorized flip-up main camera module also acts as a selfie shooter. The device features the under-display and the optical fingerprint scanner and is available in two colors- Galactic Black, Glacier Silver.
Performance and Memory
The latest Snapdragon 888 5G chipset from Qualcomm is spotted in Zenfone 8 Flip with the fastest 5G speeds. The graphics in this device is handled by the Adreno 660 GPU. No doubt, the combination of these two places Zenfone 8 Flip as a powerful device. Equipped with the latest WiFi 6E2 technology and the fastest 5G speeds, everything becomes faster. The phone will ship with ZenUI 8 that is based on Android 11.
Speaking of the memory, it comes with 8GB RAM and there is no other option for RAM. However, users have the option for 128GB and 256GB internal storage. The device does not support a card slot, so expanding the phone’s storage capacity is not possible.
As mentioned earlier, it flaunts a motorized flip-up main camera module with a triple camera set-up at the back. You get a 64MP primary wide camera, an 8MP telephoto lens, and a 12MP ultrawide camera. With the camera set up in this device, you capture your best moments with friends and family. The Flip camera also takes detailed selfies of yours. It also supports a good-quality video recording with lots of features such as Object Focus, HyperSteady, FreeZoom, Wind Filter, Mic Focus, etc. Asus Zenfone 8 Flip can record 8K video at 30fps, 4K video up to 120fps, 1080p video up to 240fps, and 720p video at 480fps on both back and front.
Battery and Extras
In comparison to Zenfone 8, the battery is bigger with a power of 5000mAh that can handle heavy tasks for longer hours. The company claims that a fully charged battery will last up to 2 days even on non-stop use. And with the Power-saving technology, the battery will last even longer. It comes with a USB Type-C port and a 30W HyperCharge adapter. Other highlight includes stereo speakers for immersive audio, Hi-Res Audio, AudioWizard, Smart Key, dual-band wifi, NFC, under-display fingerprint sensor, Bluetooth 5.2, 3.5mm headphone jack, hi-fi-grade ESS, etc.
