    Asus has announced the launch date for its next Zenfone series. Asus Zenfone 8 will be launched on May 12. Asus has teased the Zenfone 8 as “Big on Performance. Compact in Size.” The smartphone is expected to feature a compact body similar to the iPhone 12 mini.

    Asus hasn't revealed anything about the Zenfone 8 but the smartphone has popped up in leaks. The smartphone is rumoured to come with a smaller 5.92-inch OLED display. The screen size makes it slightly larger than the iPhone 12 mini's 5.4-inch screen. The display on Asus' iPhone 12 mini-rival is said to offer full HD (2,400 x 1080 pixels) resolution and up to 120Hz refresh rate.

    Apart from a compact display, the phone is also said to come with a 64-megapixel primary sensor (Sony IMX686) and a new Sony IMX663 sensor. Asus Zenfone 8 is also rumoured to be powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor.

    Asus Zenfone 8 is reportedly codenamed Sake, and it has been spotted alongside two more phones with the codenames ‘Picasso' and ‘Vodka'. The phones are likely to be part of the company's flagship Zenfone 8 series. So Asus is expected to launch at least three phones from the Zenfone 8 series. It will include Zenfone 8, Zenfone 8 Pro and possibly a Zenfone 8 mini. In addition to a 120Hz display, one of the Zenfone 8 phones is also said to feature a full HD screen but a better 144Hz refresh rate.
