ASUS Malaysia is happily announcing that they are bringing in the Zenfone 8 series smartphones into the country.

ASSU Zenfone 8 Family

To recap, the Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip are the first 2 devices of the flagship series that as per tradition, ASUS doesn’t play around with special or flashy designs to attract the spotlight because they know what the fans want – simplicity at the outside but powerful inside. And yes the rotating camera isn’t unique nowadays as it was previously debuted on the Zenfone 7 Pro as well. Aside from the latest hardware, the new ZenUI 8 will also be installed out of the box that promises a better overall user experience such as a revamped One-Hand Mode, Auto Dark Mode, Smart Key, AudioWizard, and more.

Here is a quick refresh of the key specs for both smartphones.
