ASUS expects its new leaked ZenFone 9, a ‘premium’ cut mobile with a classic design, which will be presented on July 28 in Asia.
The ASUS Zenfone 8 was presented in May 2021, so this new ZenFone 9 from the Taiwanese brand will arrive a few months later than expected, although it now reveals many of its details to open the mouth of another heavyweight in the Android catalog that will compete in the second half.
This time we are talking about a high-end smartphone aimed at the general market, which will be presented after the ASUS ROG Phone 6, which we met a few days ago, and which will compete in the gaming sector with very good references from the start, some almost identical to those on this ASUS ZenFone 9, which will also really be one of the most powerful smartphones on the market, although in its house without gaming accessories or a flashy design with LED lights.
In fact, it is that ASUS sought inspiration in Shenzhen, with a back similar to Huawei and Honor, presenting two huge circles that frame a rather prominent photographic system in the upper left part of a back slim and clean, matte black in color and probably made of glass.
As I said, the design is more classic and we don’t find many holes to the surprise, with a front panel optimized to the maximum and the front camera located in a hole in the upper left corner of the panel, leaving a lower chin more pronounced than usual on high-end devices.

You can see how the cameras protrude slightly from the body of the smartphone, and note that the main 50-megapixel sensor is mounted on a gimbal that stabilizes it optically on six axes, while references to ZenTouch technology indicate that the reading finger will be integrated into the on/off button on the side frame, to be able to perform movements such as scrolling in the interface or applications directly there.
Very curious, ASUS has integrated a standard audio jack at the top of the range to connect our favorite headphones with cable, a specification that is inexorably falling from almost all premium mobiles. The Taiwanese wanted to mark the dissenting note.
ASUS ZenFone 9 Render Gallery Leaked
As for the hardware, it is said in Asia that it will mount a Samsung AMOLED screen with a diagonal of 5.9 inches, FHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120 hertz, animated by an exceptional hardware platform that controls Snapdragon 8 + Gen1 from Qualcomm with its 4 nanometer cores with TSMC technology, more efficient and powerful than Samsung’s.
There are no details on memory configurations, although it is assumed that they will exceed 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, with a fast-charging 4,300 mAh battery, which we do not know about.
We know it will have two main cameras on the back, starting with a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor mounted on a gimbal module that optically stabilizes the sensor on 6 axes.

It will have an ultra-wide-angle rear camera, although its specifications are not known, while a high-quality build with IP68 certification, two stereo speakers and a 3.5-millimeter audio jack at the top, apparently confirmed from USB Type-C.
ZenTouch will be present with a fingerprint reader on the power button that will allow you to control various actions on the smartphone using gestures, such as scrolling on web pages or in the menus of the interface.
The new ASUS ZenFone 9 should be ready to be presented on July 28, exactly one week from now, in four colors to choose from among blue, white, cream and black, with various accessories that would facilitate the experience such as a case with the option to insert a tripod to give a practical example…
It only remains to wait for it to become official and to confirm if it will be officially sold in France, and this is because ASUS is limiting the markets where it operates a lot to seek maximum profitability for its activity. If it arrives and the price is attractive, look at what ASUS can achieve with a device of this caliber… Congratulations!
