Asus ZenFone 8 Mini Specifications Leaked

Asus ZenFone 8 Mini may launch with a 5.92-inch 120Hz refresh rate display and Snapdragon 888 SoC, according to a report. XDA Developers say in a report that they have found references to three smartphones with codenames “SAKE”, “PICASSO”, and “VODKA” in the kernel source code and firmware of Asus ROG Phone 5 hinting at multiple ZenFone 8 smartphone models. Furthermore, the source code reportedly suggests that these smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 flagship SoC.

Apart from “SAKE”, “PICASSO”, and “VODKA” codenames, the ROG Phone 5 kernel source code also had references to “SAKE_PLUS” and “VODKA_PLUS” codenames, according to a report by XDA Developers. However, there is no information on which of these devices belong to the Asus ZenFone 8 series.

The handset with codename “SAKE” is expected to be the mini version since it is referred to as a “small phone” in the Asus software. The report also states that explicit references to the ZenFone 8 and ZenFone 8 Flip have been spotted in the latest version of the Asus PixelMaster Camera application, while there’s no mention of the Asus ZenFone 8 Mini.

Furthermore, the ZenFone 8 Flip had allegedly appeared in a Google support document. It is suggested that the rumoured ZenFone 8 Mini and 8 Flip are the same devices. Previously, it was also reported that the Asus smartphone with codename “SAKE” will be the rumored ZenFone 8 Mini.

Talking about the specifications, XDA Developers report says that the ZenFone 8 Mini is expected to sport a 5.92-inch FHD+ (1080 × 2400 pixels) OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate. There is a reference of two image sensors: a 64MP Sony IMX686 and a new Sony IMX663 sensor – in the source code.

The handset with codename “PICASSO” is expected to feature a 6.67-inch FHD+ Samsung OLED panel. This particular smartphone has similar camera hardware to the ZenFone 7 series in addition to a 24MP camera sensor which is defined as the front sensor in the kernel. The kernel source code did not mention any details about the rumored “VODKA” device.
