Asus ZenFone 9 Officially Launched

In today’s launch conference, Asus officially launched Zenfone 9 as a 5.9-inch small screen Android flagship with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 Chipset, starting from €800.

With a weight of 165 grams and a body size of 146.6 × 68.2 × 9.5mm, the Asus Zenfone 9 packs a 4300 mAh battery, which is far better than Galaxy S22’s 3700mAh battery with 167g body weight. For the refilling battery, it supports 30W fast charging.

In terms of heat dissipation, Zenfone 9 ditches previous heat pipes with a newly designed vapor chamber and a more rigorous heat spreader that uses copper, graphite sheets, and thermal paste.

Asus Zenfone 9 equipped with 5.9-inch 120Hz AMOLED display from Samsung with 1100 nits max brightness. The display is protected with Corning Gorilla Victus glass, the back is made of polycarbonate, aluminum alloy center frame, and IP68 dust and water resistance.

The camera system is also upgraded with 50 megapixels Sony IMX766 main camera with 6-Axis Hybrid Gimbal Stabilizer and Quad Bayer technology + 12 megapixels IMX363 ultra-wide angle at the rear and a 12 megapixels IMX663 front-facing camera.

Besides the display, camera, battery, and chipset, this Asus added powerful audio features to the Zenfone 9. It packs stereo dual speakers with Qualcomm Aqstic amplifier WSA8835. Audio features also include Snapdragon Sound, aptX HD, Adaptive, LDAC, and AAC. It also retained a 3.5mm headphone jack. The rest of the Asus Zenfone 9 full specifications are as below:
