Asus is all geared up to launch the next generation of its flip camera smartphone Asus Zenfone 8 series on May 12. And just ahead of the official unveiling the renders and specs of both Asus Zenfone 8 Flip and Zenfone 8 have leaked on the web. This gives us a fair idea of how the upcoming phone will look like and what they are going to offer. The superior one, which is the Zenfone 8 flip will be bigger in size as compared to the mini model Zenfone 8 that would carry a much more compact form factor with a fixed camera module.
