The Asus ZenFone 8 series is about to launch on May 12 and it was speculated that Asus will be ditching the flip camera module on this year’s models but it doesn’t look like so. Some new renders along with leaked specifications have emerged about the devices under the ZenFone 8 series that suggest the brand is retaining the flip camera module for one of the models in the series.
The leak comes from 91Mobiles (via Ishan Agarwal) as per whom the ZenFone 8 Flip will have the flipping camera module using which you will be able to use the same camera module for both selfies and rear camera pictures. You get a more immersive experience with this type of camera module implementation as there are no punch-hole cutouts or notches that will come in your way while you game or watch movies.
The ZenFone 8 on the other hand comes with a more usual look but is the compact one in the series to offer you a flagship experience while being small. It has a vertical camera module on the back that looks like it’s positioned out of place for some reason. This one also comes in two colour options and has a hole-punch cutout on the front housing the selfie shooter.
