ASUS has confirmed that it has adopted a venerable punch-gap order for no lower than undoubtedly one of its upcoming ZenFone 8 handsets. It looks that ASUS will open no lower than the ZenFone 8 and ZenFone 8 Mini on Might perhaps presumably well 12, but a ZenFone 8 Flip would possibly perhaps presumably well additionally be up for liberate, too.
ASUS has printed a key a part of the ZenFone 8 series, its successor to closing yr’s ZenFone 7 and ZenFone 7 Pro. The corporate will now not unveil the ZenFone 8 series till Might perhaps presumably well 12, but it undoubtedly has already confirmed that no lower than one ZenFone 8 instrument can own a punch-gap order, a departure from latest ZenFone designs.
ASUS has equipped flagship ZenFone smartphones from the ZenFone 6 onwards with a motorised flip-up digicam module, negating the need for dedicated front-facing cameras. On the one hand, this has allowed the ZenFone 6 and ZenFone 7 series to own uninterrupted displays with miniature bezels. On the diverse hand, it has also provided the 2 generations of smartphones with very perfect front-facing cameras.
It is unclear if ASUS plans to employ a punch-gap digicam within the rumoured ZenFone 8 Mini. Leaks from earlier this yr would suggest in every other case, though. The presumed ZenFone 8 Mini (ZS590KS) doesn’t own a front-facing digicam, however the ZS672KS and ZS673KS enact. The mannequin numbers of these would suggest that they’ve 6.7-breeze displays, so that they would possibly perhaps presumably well additionally be the successors to the ZenFone 7 and ZenFone 7 Pro.
If that is the case, then we would additionally peep ASUS liberate the ZenFone 8 and ZenFone 8 Pro (ZS672KS/ZS673KW), the ZenFone 8 Mini (ZS590KS) and yet any other instrument codenamed ‘VODKA’. By the absolute most sensible scheme, this instrument also carries the mannequin amount ZS675KW. XDA Builders has came across references to a ZenFone 8 Flip within the ASUS PixelMaster Camera app, so there is a gamble that ‘VODKA’ is the codename for this instrument.
