Previously in May, ASUS announced the Zenfone 8, one of a very small number of flagship devices that is even more compact than most smartphones these days. It has taken even more than six weeks, though today the Zenfone 8 has finally managed to cross the big pond and land in the United States (but what about Canada?). The ASUS online store is now offering the $599.99 phone.
This price gets you an unlocked version of the phone with 8GB’s of RAM and 128GB’s of storage, and you should also take note that it’s a limited time promo price to celebrate the release. Starting on July 14th, it will switch to the generally recommended price of $629.99, so act fast just incase you want to say $30.
If you also want to save more money, you can also splurge on the $699.99 version which comes with 256GB’s of storage and the same 8GB of RAM. These are the only two variants of the Zenfone 8 that ASUS is selling in the United States.
This midel is being sold in the U.S. and is compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, MVNO’s operating on their networks, though not with Verizon for some reason.
The Zenfone 8 comes in at 5.9″ 1080px2400 Super AMOLED 120Hz touchscreen, the Snadragon 888 chipset, and a dual camera system (64MP main with OIS + 12 MP ultrawide with autofocus), a 12 MP selfie snapper, and a 4,000 mAh battery with 30W fast charging as well. It even runs the 11th version of Android with ZenUI 8 on top.
