Written by admin

Asus lovers, we have good news for you. A new phone from the OEM has just been leaked. And this time, the leak comes directly from the company itself (via TechGoing). In a recently uploaded marketing video on YouTube [via TechGoing] – which was later removed – Asus showcased the new addition to its compact phones, the Zenfone 9. Aside from showing us what the phone will look like, the one-minute clip also includes some of the specs we can get from the Zenfone. to expect. 9. to have.

Like its predecessor, the Zenfone 9 will have a compact 5.9-inch design and top performance. Under the hood of the new addition to the Zenfone family is the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. This is Qualcomm’s latest silicon, which has a 10% performance boost compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 of early 2022. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is also the SoC found in Asus’ latest gaming phones, the ROG Phone 6, and the Phone 6 Pro. Apparently, the Zenfone 9 will have a slightly larger battery than its predecessor. From the video, we can see that it has a 4,300 mAh cell in it, which is a minor upgrade from the 4,000 mAh cell in the Zenfone 8.

On the front of the camera, the Zenfone 9 will have a dual-camera setup, and the main shooter will be the 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor – the same as in the ROG Phone 6, which we were quite impressed with. It also has a 6-axis hybrid gimbal stabilizer, which should neutralize any wobble from your hand. The new Zenfone will also have an “all new Light Trail mode”, which will likely use slow shutter speeds for “light painting” effects.

The Zenfone 9 comes with an AMOLED display from Samsung, which supports a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The phone also has a handy feature, the ZenTouch button, that makes it easier to scroll through a page by sliding your finger on it.

In the video we also see that the Zenfone 9 will have a fingerprint scanner on the right side, an IP68 water resistant rating and a 3.5mm audio jack. Yes, an audio jack. These days we have to appreciate it when an OEM puts this “feature” in their phone, so thanks Asus for still doing that.

Judging by the video, you can buy a Zenfone 9 in four available colors: red, white, black or blue. It also looks like Asus will offer at least two accessories for its new Zenfone. A backpack mount with likely an optional gimbal stabilizer and a Connex phone case with a built-in kickstand or card holder.

What the price of the Zenfone 9 will be and when we could expect Asus to announce it, is not stated in the video. However, since the company has already made a promotional clip, the announcement date may come very soon.
