Long time no see. ASUS’s Zenfone line is back in the Philippines with the launch of its latest flagships: the Zenfone 8 and 8 Flip.

The ASUS Zenfone 8 and 8 Flip boasts a proper flagship chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor — their only key similarities.

Obviously, the top-tier version kept the motorized flip camera of its predecessor. This lets you use its 64-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel 3x telephoto, and 12-megapixel ultra-wide cameras for taking selfies. Plus, let you take creative shots from different angles.

On the other hand, the vanilla Zenfone 8 has its dual cameras on the traditional location on the back, with a dedicated 12-megapixel selfie camera on the front. This device has a 64-megapixel camera, with OIS that’s oddly missing on the expensive model. However, the telephoto lens is now gone.

The ASUS Zenfone 8 has a compact 5.9-inch Super AMOLED screen with a fast 120Hz refresh rate.

On the other hand, the Flip version is much larger at 6.67-inch but oddly has a slower 90Hz refresh rate. It also has 1000-nits peak brightness, while the Zenfone 8 can get to 1,100-nits. The Flip has Gorilla Glass 6, while the former has a tougher Gorilla Glass Victus.

With its larger body, the ASUS Zenfone 8 Flip can accommodate a larger 5,000mAh battery, while the latter settles for 4,000mAh. Both models have the same 30W fast charger.

The ASUS Zenfone 8 has a price of Php39,995 for the 16GB/256GB and Php34,995 for the 8GB/128GB. On the other hand, the ASUS Zenfone 8 Flip has a price of Php39,995 for the sole 8GB/256GB model.

Pre-orders for the Zenfone 8 will happen on May 14 to 25, while the Zenfone 8 Flip will be from May 14 to June 10. You can reserve a unit on ASUS’s website to get a free RhinoShield SolidSuit and JBL Go 3.
