Asus had a pretty solid phone lineup in 2021 with the Zenfone 8 and ROG 5 Phone series. Zenfone 8 was one of the few compact Android flagships while the ROG Phone 5 and its five variations offered arguably the best gaming phone experience. A new leak coming from within the Zenfone 8 series’ Android 12 update might have just revealed the designs of the Zenfon 9 and ROG Phone 6.
Asus Zenfone 9 design
The first image comes from the Zenfone 8 running Android 12 and shows a hidden settings menu which details a new double-tap on the back gesture and a sketch of what is presumed to be the Zenfone 9. The device appears to have two camera modules and the text below them suggests a 50MP main shooter with OIS and a 12MP ultrawide snapper. There’s a 09 number below the camera text which further emphasizes that this is the Zenfone 8’s successor.
The second image comes courtesy of the same firmware and shows a sketch of the alleged ROG Phone 6. The device has a slightly altered appearance from the Zenfone 5 series with a larger cameras island and bigger rear display. The device will use a triple camera setup like last year’s model though we don’t get details on the sensors used here.
Asus ROG Phone 6 design
The LED flash looks to be positioned right next to the cameras this time around. We’re all but certain that ROG Phone 6 will use a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset at the helm and it will be interesting to see what kind of thermal management Asus has cooked up.
