The successor to last year’s Zenfone 7 has leaked online, indicating that the phone’s flipping camera array will return on May 12th. 91Mobiles has published specifications and images for two upcoming smartphones, the Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip, based on information given by leaker Ishan Agarwal.

The 8 Flip, as the name implies, has three cameras built into a mechanical flipping mechanism that rotates them over the top edge of the monitor to take selfies, while the 8 has two rear cameras in a more traditional rectangular camera bump.

According to the leaks, the Zenfone 8 Flip appears to be a small spec bump over last year’s Zenfone 7 Pro. It has a Snapdragon 888 processor rather than a Snapdragon 865 Plus, but it has the same huge 5,000mAH battery, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage as the previous model.

According to the leak, the 1080p OLED monitor is still notchless thanks to the flipping cameras, 6.67 inches in height, and runs at 90Hz. It also reportedly weights the same at 230 grammes, implying that it is a heavy unit.

The cameras all tend to be identical, with one notable exception. While the Asus Zenfone 7 Pro had a 64 megapixel main camera, an 8 megapixel telephoto, and a 12 megapixel ultrawide, the latest 8 Flip would reportedly replace the ultrawide with a 12 megapixel macro.

Meanwhile, according to the leak, the standard Zenfone 8 is a much more conventional unit. It will have a smaller 5.92-inch 1080p display, but the same Snapdragon 888 processor and 8GB of RAM, though with a smaller 4,000 mAh battery and 128GB of internal storage.

It will also reportedly have one less rear-facing camera since it lacks the telephoto lens used on the 8 Flip. Having said that, due to its different hole-punch selfie camera on the front, it should have the same number of cameras overall. It also has an increasingly unusual headphone port.

There were no specifics on the phones’ pricing or release dates, but with a launch event rumored for next week, we won’t have to wait long for official information.
