Much has been said about the release of the Asus Zenfone 8 series. Asus launched the Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro back in September and is already set to follow the duo up with the next generation of premium phones in the series. The company has now also confirmed a release date for the new devices.

In a teaser image revealed yesterday, Asus confirmed that the Zenfone 8 series will be released on May 12. The image uses the tagline, "Big on Performance, Compact in Size". That essentially slams a stamp of confirmation on the existence of the Zenfone 8 Mini, a device that has made the rounds on the front pages of tech media numerous times over the past month.

Details of the Zenfone 8 Mini remain elusive, but a Snapdragon 888 is a certainty, and Geekbench appearances also point towards 8 GB of RAM. The Zenfone 8 Mini is expected to sport a 5.9-inch display, likely a 120 Hz OLED. That wouldn't have been considered compact a few years ago but times have changed.

Buy the Asus Zenfone 7 on Amazon.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
