Asus ZenFone 8 Flip brings a rotating camera and 90Hz AMOLED display

Finally, Asus announced the Zenfone 8 series. They announced two devices: ZenFone 8 and ZenFone 8 Flip. As the name suggested, ZenFone 8 Flip has a flipping camera setup whereas the regular ZenFone 8 has a normal camera. Let’s have a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Asus ZenFone 8 Flip in Nepal.

Asus ZenFone 8 Flip Overview

Display and Design

Asus ZenFone 8 Flip is a huge phone with a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with an FHD+ resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. Unfortunately, it supports only a 90Hz refresh rate. However, a 200Hz touch sampling rate makes it more responsive. The display is clean because of the flipping rear camera which also works as a front camera. It is protected by Gorilla Glass 6, supports HDR10+ contents, and covers 110% DCI-P3 and 105% NTSC color gamut.

The phone measures 165.04 x 77.28 x 9.6 mm and weighs 230g. There is a Smart Key that can be used to perform three different actions with a single, double, or long-press. It is available in two different color options: Galactic Black and Glacier Silver. Sadly, IP certification and a 3.5mm headphone jack is missing here.


The Asus ZenFone 8 Flip flaunts a triple camera setup on the back which also works as a selfie camera. The setup is led by a 64MP Sony IMX686 primary sensor which lacks OIS. It is accompanied by a 12MP Sony IMX363 ultrawide lens which offers macro shots too. The third lens is an 8MP telephoto lens that supports 3x optical zoom and up to 12x digital zoom.
