Asus will launch the ZenFone 8 Flip soon, according to a new leak

Google's ARCore has added a new device called the ZenFone 8 Flip to its certification database. Therefore, it seems a new generation of Asus' innovative swivel-cam flagship Android phones is on the way. It is thought to be accompanied by a Mini variant, although that one has failed to materialize in this new leak.

The blog MySmartPrice has just noticed that Asus has had a device called the ZenFone 8 Flip added to the Google ARCore supported list. This name strongly suggests that it is a direct successor to the 7 or 7 Pro: Android flagships whose freely-moving rear cameras are a breath of fresh air in a market otherwise saturated with inert candy-bar form-factors liberally sprinkled with punch-holes.

Nevertheless, it is strange that Asus has apparently seen fit to augment this 2021 ZenFone's name with the suffix "Flip". It may hint that other variants without the series' characteristic swivel-camera module are on the way. On that note, the OEM has been rumored to add a "Mini" to the series this year, although it has yet to make the ARCore list.

This new "8 Flip" leak is given more credence as it has surfaced at roughly the same time as several other devices all but confirmed to launch soon. They include the 4G/LTE-only variants of the Samsung Galaxy A52 and A72, not to mention the Galaxy A82 5G (another device that stands a decent chance of debuting as a swivel-cam, if not a sliding-cam, phone) and the 108MP-camera Realme 8 Pro.
