Numerous leaks across the past month have suggested that the Asus Zenfone 8, Zenfone 8 Mini, Zenfone 8 Pro, or Zenfone 8 Flip could all launch this week.
Asus Zenfone 8 release date and price
Fans will know more when Asus officially launches the Asus Zenfone 8 this week, together with any sibling models.
Asus promises a phone that is big in performance and compact in size, and will unveil the official specs during its upcoming livestream.
The Zenfone 8 could feature some of the same flagship specs as the Asus Zenfone 7 Pro, packed into a much smaller frame and without its trademark flipping camera.

Fans could also see a more expensive 2021 Zenfone phone that brings the rotating camera back.
While the Samsung Galaxy A82 could also have one, it has not been confirmed yet, which could make the Zenfone 8 Flip edition a unique option for lovers of novelty camera.
Furthermore, Asus announced its Zenfone 8 product launch in April. During an online event on May 12 at 10am PT, 1pm ET, 6pm BST, and 3am AEST on May 13, Asus is set to reveal the full details for the phone.
The event can be livestreamed through YouTube.
As for the price, there has been no leaked information yet. The Zenfone 7 cost about $750, while the Zenfone 7 Pro cost about $950. It is possible that fans could see similar pricing for the Zenfone 8 series, with a slightly higher cost for the 8 Flip or 8 Pro.
Asus Zenfone 8 Leaked Specs
Fans will get an official confirmation of the Asus Zenfone 8 specs on May 12, along with information on other hypothetical models like the Zenfone 8 Mini, Zenfone 8 Pro, and a Zenfone 8 Flip.
Until then, leaked information from various sources can give the fans a clear picture of what to expect, according to TechRadar.
A few weeks ago, Geekbench released a listing for an Asus Zenfone 8 Mini that allegedly has a 5.92-inch screen and Snapdragon 888 chipset.
Another recent leak indicated that the Mini could have IP68 water and dust protection, a built-in fingerprint scanner, a 4,000mAh battery, and a blue-and-black gradient pattern on the back of the phone.
However, the latest leak from Ishan Agarwal suggested that the Zenfone 8 itself would be 5.92 inches, given how unlikely it would be for two Zenfone models to be the same size, there may be no Zenfone 8 Mini. Instead, all of those specs could apply to the main Zenfone 8.
Other leaked Zenfone 8 specs indicate it will have a 120Hz display, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, 64MP main camera, 30W fast charging and 3.5mm headphone jack.
Fans get an official Asus render of the Zenfone 8 with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera.
The Zenfone 7 and 7 Pro had a flippable three-camera array to shoot rear and front photos, so the presence of the selfie camera strongly suggests that Asus ditched the feature of the Zenfone 8.
Leaks also suggest that there could be a Zenfone 8 Flip, which could bring back the flipping camera module. It could offer a bit upgraded specs, including a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, 256GB of storage, and 5,000mAh battery capacity.
