Asus ZenFone 8 Mini Expected Features

The Asus ZenFone 8 Mini is tipped to pack a 5.92-inch AMOLED display that offers a 1080p FHD+ resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate. Reports also suggest a 4,000 mAh battery with 30W fast charging support under the hood. It's also been confirmed that the upcoming Asus ZenFone 8 Mini would draw power from the flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC.

 

A new leak had suggested the Asus ZenFone 8 Mini would be available in several RAM models, offering up to 16GB RAM paired with up to 256GB default storage. Also, the device will include a dual-camera setup with a 64MP Sony IMX688 primary sensor along with a Cirrus CS35L45 amplifier. That said, these are mere speculations and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Asus ZenFone 8 Mini Better Than iPhone Mini?

Apple brought the Mini design with the iPhone 12 series. With a compact design, the iPhone 12 Mini offered all the high-end, premium features under the hood. Soon after the launch, it was rumored that several companies might follow suit and launch a compact smartphone with flagship features. Looks like the Asus ZenFone 8 Mini is going to be a classic example.

That said, the iPhone 12 Mini wasn't a commercial success. Users were already used to large, immersive displays with more than 6-inch real estate. Bringing in a small, 5.4-inch display wasn't something that people wanted to use. Moreover, it also brought in a very compact battery that would drain out pretty fast.

On the other hand, the Asus ZenFone 8 Mini has understood the drawbacks of the Mini smartphone and has upgraded it accordingly. Despite its small size, Asus is tipped to include a 4,000 mAh battery. The upcoming Asus ZenFone 8 Mini is set to be the most compact smartphone running Snapdragon 888 SoC. But it'll remain to see how successful it would be commercially.
