ASUS 8Z has finally launch in India

Asus 8Z

The ASUS 8Z has finally launched in India after months of delay by the manufacturer. With screens getting bigger and taller, the 8Z is very compact and will appeal to those that have small hands and to those who prefer something smaller than what other brands offer.

It comes with a 5.9-inch E4 AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. On top is a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protecting the display. The screen brightness can go as high as 1100 nits, and it has 112% DCI-P3 color gamut.

The ASUS 8Z draw its processing power from tge Snapdragon 888 5nm chipset, and only comes in 8GB RAM/128GB storage configuration. Disappointingly, the storage is not expandable. This may make some people to change their mind about purchasing the device.

Dua rear-facing cameras sits at the back - the main has a 64MP (Sony IMX686) sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS) and f/1.8 aperture, while the secondary has a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens with Sony IMX363 sensor. We have 12MP selfie camera with Sony IMX663 sensor running the show at the front.

Out-of-the-box, the ASUS 8Z runs Android 11 with ZenUI 8 on top, but the firm promised Android 12 update. Other features include under-display fingerprint sensor, 3.5mm audio jack, IP68 water and dust-proof certification, and Global 5G network supports.
