ASUS ZenFone 9 officially launches, still small with flagship specifications

ASUS ZenFone 9

The ASUS ZenFone 9 has officially made its debut. It still takes aim at the smaller flagship formfactor with a 5.9-inch 2400 x 1080 AMOLED screen with 112% DCI-P3 and 120Hz refresh rate. Despite its small stature, it still packs flagship-tier specifications like a Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chipset with up to 256GB UFS 3.1 storage and up to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM.

ASUS keeps it simple in the camera department with a 50MP f/1.9 Sony iMX766 main camera and a 12MP f/2.2 Sony IMX363 ultrawide camera at the back. At the front is a 12MP f/2.45 Son IMX663-powered selfie lens.
