It is not clear what prompted Asus to use the national Japanese alcoholic drink to designate the smartphone, but for another model of the line, an equally intriguing designation was chosen – Vodka. Both “sake” and “vodka” are built on Snapdragon 888.
The former is credited with a 5.9-inch OLED screen with a frame rate of 120 Hz and a camera with a 64-megapixel sensor. The commercial name for “sake” is expected to be Zenfone 8 Mini. About “vodka”, except, in fact, the platform, nothing else is reported.
But there will be another model in the series – Picasso (catalog number – ZS675KW). Here, too, we are waiting for the Snapdragon 888, as well as a 6.75-inch screen and a triple camera with Sony IMX686 (64 megapixels), Sony IMX363 (12 megapixels), and OmniVision OV08A (8 megapixels) sensors.
According to another source, with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and 120Hz screen. Asus is preparing a strong competitor to the “clamshell” Moto RAZR 5G and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G. It will be called Asus Zenfone 8 Flip.
Google has updated the list of devices that support its ARCore augmented reality platform. One of the models on this list has aroused increased interest: it is called the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip.
In fact, this is the first reliable confirmation of the existence of a clamshell smartphone within the Zenfone 8 line. Since the offer of such models is very limited, the Zenfone 8 Flip will have to compete with both the Moto RAZR 5G and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G. But the Asus smartphone has a lot to offer.
In the usual Asus Zenfone 8, it is possible that the motives of Zenfone 7 will be found. But how the Zenfone 8 Flip will look like is a big question.
Apparently, Zenfone 8 Flip is the very Zenfone 8 Mini codenamed “sake”, which we already discussed. It is credited with a Snapdragon 888 SoC and a 5.9-inch OLED display with a frame rate of 120Hz.
It should be noted that the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip is not the only model not yet presented from the updated ARCore support list. In addition to this smartphone, it also featured: LG Stylo 7, Motorola Moto G (100), Oppo Reno 5 A, Oppo Reno 5 Pro + 5G Bosch, Realme 8 Pro, Samsung A52 4G, Samsung A72 4G, Samsung A82 5G, TCL 20 Pro 5G, ZTE Z6650S.
