Asus Zenfone 8 5G - Overview

Breakthrough performance with Snapdragon 888
As we've already told you, the Asus Zenfone 8 offers groundbreaking performance powered by the advanced 5nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform, a processor we've already seen and tested in other top phones of 2021, such as the Xiaomi Mi 11i, the OnePlus 9 or the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra. Thanks to it, the Zenfone 8 is the most powerful ASUS smartphone to date. It features the fastest possible 5G speeds and the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard with 6 GHz support, offering even faster and more stable connections. Whatever you do, you'll do it at the speed of light!

120 Hz AMOLED display with HDR10+ support
Now get ready to experience visual perfection. With a response time of 1ms, the Zenfone 8's 120Hz AMOLED display ensures silky-smooth transitions and sharper images. In addition, the 112% DCI-P3 colour gamut brings videos and images to life, while Delta-E < 1 colour accuracy ensures maximum fidelity, and HDR10+ certification enhances details in darker scenes. And to keep it looking good for longer, it's protected by a durable Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.

Irresistible design in black or silver
Let Zenfone 8 help you lighten the load! Asus' new phone offers you maximum functionality without being too heavy or bulky. In fact, its 5.9-inch screen is the perfect size to carry around and even use it with one hand.

Without a doubt, the Asus Zenfone 8 is designed to impress, boasting an irresistible look and a premium feel. The 3D curved back fits perfectly in the palm of your hand for a comfortable grip, while the matte glass finish on the back gives it a clean, contemporary look. Black or Silver, choose the colour you like best!

IP68 water resistance
And because Asus is very cautious, they've given their Zenfone 8 water and dust resistance through an IP68* certification, preparing your beloved device for any eventuality, so you can just worry about living your life to the fullest.

The IP68 standard is based on laboratory testing in a controlled environment, with immersion in fresh water at room temperature for a set period of time. We recommend not immersing the device in salt water, hot water and/or other liquids that may be corrosive and affect its weathertightness. For proper maintenance, if the device comes into contact with these products, clean it immediately with fresh water.

4000 mAh battery with new system optimisation mode
Believe it or not, inside the compact Zenfone 8 is a powerful 4000 mAh battery, which lasts even longer thanks to a charging system that automatically learns your behaviour and optimises it for you. There are also power modes that allow you to maximise performance or battery life, as well as an Advanced Mode that lets you customise Zenfone 8's power usage just the way you want it.

Professional quality dual rear camera
Capture every important moment in superb quality with ASUS Zenfone 8's dual-camera system. The 64-megapixel main camera offers unprecedented resolution and high light sensitivity, resulting in perfect photos day or night. The ultra-wide-angle camera gives you even more freedom in composition for incredibly detailed macro shots, and the 12-megapixel front camera, equipped with the latest Sony IMX663 sensor and fast autofocus, will result in the brightest selfies. Immortalise every magical situation with ease!

The magic of cinema in your videos
But Zenfone 8 doesn't stop there and also gives you the highest video quality, allowing you to capture smooth, steady action clips. In addition, the professional video mode features a free zoom function and wind filter, so you can add a cinematic touch to your work. Three microphones enhance audio capture, and Acoustic Focus Mode lets you choose the direction of the sound you want to record, eliminating unwanted noise.

A pleasure for your ears
Naturally, ASUS has also made an effort to give you the best audio quality in this compact phone. Two advanced amplifiers improve sound resolution, dynamic range, bass punch and overall balance. And to take your listening experience to the next level, ASUS has collaborated with audio specialists Dirac to bring out the details and achieve a more balanced bass. And with Zenfone 8's 3.5mm audio jack, you can enjoy sound the way you choose.

ZenUI 8. Faster, easier and smarter
Finally, the Zenfone 8 features ASUS' ZenUI 8 user interface, which aims to make things easier and smarter for you by combining simplicity and speed with a customised experience that's perfectly tailored to your needs.

ZenUI 8 lands with a simple and clean design based on Android, with features that will increase our comfort of use, such as One-handed Mode, which allows you to operate the device with one hand and just a gesture away; System Mode, which prioritizes performance or prolongs battery life with factory modes; Smart Key, which instantly accesses your favorite actions and sets your own rules; or Dark Mode, which automatically adjusts applications with a simple and convenient dark colour scheme.
