TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The specifications for Asus' newest ZenFone 8 series have been leaked ahead of a launch event slated for next Wednesday (May 12).

Specs and renders of the two upcoming phones — the Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip — were published by 91Mobiles based on information given by industry insider Ishan Agarwal.

The larger of the two devices, the Zenfone 8 Flip, appears to keep the camera flip design of the Zenfone 6Z and Zenfone 7. The motorized camera module comes with a triple camera configuration, including a 64 MP primary sensor, a 12 MP macro lens, and an 8 MP telephoto lens. The device will also likely support 8 K video recording.

The Zenfone 8 Flip comes with a Snapdragon 888 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and 256 GB of internal storage. The Flip will feature a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate in addition to a large 5,000 mAh battery that supports 30 W rapid charging.

Turning to the Zenfone 8, it also comes equipped with a Snapdragon 888 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and 128 G of internal storage. The 8 has a smaller 5.92-inch FHD+ display and comes with a smaller 4,000 mAh battery capable of 30 W rapid charging.

The Zenfone 8 looks as if it will sport a dual-camera system on the back of the device, which includes a 64 MP primary sensor, a 12 MP macro lens, and support for 8 K video recording. The phone is also expected to come with a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

No information was given for pricing or release dates, but with the launch event set for Wednesday, consumers will not have to wait long for more details.
