As part of the company’s plan to boost smartphone sales in 2021, ASUS is reportedly working on a more compact version of the ZenFone flagship dubbed as the ZenFone Mini according to a fresh report from DigiTimes.
Despite the smaller form factor, this device is said to be targeted towards the higher-end segment, making it a viable alternative over Apple’s iPhone 12 Mini. Specific details however, weren’t revealed by the report.
Although many seems to adore the idea of having a smaller phone due to the convenience it brings, but the sales of iPhone 12 Mini isn’t really impressive so far. This of course raises questions whether launching the ZenFone Mini could actually helps the company to revitalize their smartphone arm.
Moving on, the same report also claimed that ASUS will be launching the much anticipated ROG Phone 5 by April this year. This time round, the ROG Phone 5 is tipped to be slightly more expensive than last year’s ROG Phone 3 (Review).
In fact, we’d already learned pretty much about the ROG Phone 5 prior to its launch. Based on its recent certification and Geekbench listings alone, its enough to confirm most of the device’s key specs including the presence of a Snapdragon 888 SoC, triple-camera setup, 6,000mAh battery, 65W fast-charging, as well as Android 11 running atop.
Likewise, an alleged hands-on video of the ROG Phone 5 also showcased its unique dot matrix secondary display on its back panel as well.
