The zenfone 9 video was quickly removed, but not before it was captured by the exit technician.
From the video, it’s clear that asus has a big launch planned since zenfone 9, and every reason to do so.
This is a flagship device that will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, the same one found in the mighty ROG Phone 6.
The video also revealed that the ZenFone 9 will come with a 50-megapixel primary camera with a Sony IMX766 sensor, which features six-axis OIS for image stabilization.
However, while the camera looks beautiful, the big selling point of the zenfone 9 will be the same as its predecessor: it’s a compact android phone.
Notably, it also has a 3.5mm headphone jack, a rarity even on mid-range phones today.
Reportedly, the phone comes with a 5.9-inch AMOLED screen with full HD+ resolution and a 120hz refresh rate, powered by a 4300mAh battery.
The fingerprint sensor is moved to the side into a “smart key” and sliding it will allow you to comfortably scroll up and down.
At the moment, there is no word from Asus about this device being leaked, but we hope it will happen soon as the cat is already out of the bag.
