Following the lineup’s global reveal, ASUS has announced that the ZenFone 8 and ZenFone 8 Flip will launch in the Philippines! This means ASUS’ signature ZenFone lineup is officially coming back to the country, as the previous ZenFone models have not launched here.
In case you missed the announcement, the ZenFone 8 is ASUS’ newest flagship, and it packs a compact form factor thanks to its 5.9-inch AMOLED display. Even with its small size, the ZenFone 8 still packs a flagship-level processor – a Snapdragon 888 to be exact.
Meanwhile, the ZenFone 8 Flip is ASUS’ latest phone with its signature flip camera module. This enables the ZenFone 8 Flip to take selfies with its triple rear camera setup. Aside from its nifty cameras, the Flip also comes with a flagship Snapdragon 888 processor.
