ASUS Zenfone 9 Launched

The ASUS Zenfone 9 is the successor to the ASUS Zenfone 8. The Zenfone 9 is a compact flagship phone with a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. This is one of the few phones with a screen smaller than 6 inches. This year, the company did not announce a Flip model.

In comparison to the ASUS Zenfone 8, the Zenfone 8 has a larger battery, flat sides, slimmer bezels, and improved optics. The phone's design is also significantly different from the previous generation flagship, particularly the rear camera design. Now that the device has been launched in the global market, we can expect it to arrive in India as the ASUS 9Z. Let's take a look at the phone's price, features, and specifications.
