Asus has confirmed the launch date of its next flagship smartphone, Zenfone 10. According to Instagram post Reported by Asus Taiwan earlier today, the device will be unveiled in the country at 9 PM local time (9 AM ET) on June 29. Zenfone 9 was presented at the end of July last year, so the next device is scheduled to arrive a month early.
The teaser posted by Asus also appears to show off the phone’s design, including a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera in the left corner, mirroring the current model. The poster also shows a charging dock, which indicates that the Zenfone 10 will have wireless charging capabilities. The image also includes a gimbal, a pair of over-ear headphones, and what looks like either a DSLR or mirrorless camera. However, its significance remains unclear at present. The teaser also uses a light green color, possibly hinting at a vibrant new color path for the upcoming device.
The Zenfone 10 will be the successor to the Zenfone 9, which was launched last year and garnered almost universal acclaim for delivering cutting-edge performance and a great software experience in a relatively small form factor. While Asus has not revealed whether the Zenfone 10 will be as compact as its predecessor, some rumors suggest that its display could be slightly larger than the 5.9-inch Zenfone 9 in line with market trends. The device is expected to rival the likes of the Galaxy S23 and Pixel 7, both of which are larger than the Zenfone 9.
In terms of hardware, rumors online suggest that the Zenfone 10 could be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC and feature a 6.3-inch FHD+ display. It is also expected to rock a 200MP main camera with OIS and a 5,000mAh battery with 67W fast charging. A previous Geekbench listing also suggested that the device will run on Android 13 out of the box. Overall, the Zenfone 10 is likely to be another interesting offering from Asus, and the good news is that we won’t have to wait long to get our hands on it.
