The Zenfone 8 launch date is May 12th, but we’re not sure if ASUS will be launching the phones in India on the same day. An online event will take place, as is the norm these days, and you can expect there to be three new ZenFone 8 phones. As the event page asks users to expect big performance and compact size, we reckon that ASUS is talking about the ZenFone 8 Mini.

The ASUS ZenFone 8 Mini will be powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC, if Geekbench results are to be believed, and it’ll have a compact design. According to rumours, the phone will feature a 5.9-inch FHD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate, and no notch or bezels. It’ll get a revolving 64-megapixel camera setup as well. However, these are just rumours and leaks as of now, and we should find out more when the devices are officially unveiled.

ASUS will also launch the ZenFone 8 and ZenFone 8 Pro, which will also be equipped with the Snapdragon 888 SoC. However, these phones will offer larger screens and batteries. We expect the rest of the hardware and features to remain similar across all three smartphones. This would be excellent for those who’re looking to buy a compact yet powerful Android smartphone.
