ASUS Zenfone 10 Flagship Keeps it Small
Jun 29, 2023, 11:21 AM by Rich Brome
Asus has announced its newest compact flagship phone, the Zenfone 10. It has a 5.9-inch FHD+ OLED display with an all-screen design and up to 144 Hz refresh, protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. With most of today's smartphones sporting screens well over 6 inches, that makes this high-end phone unusually compact. It's powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip paired with up to 16 GB of LPDDR5x RAM and up to 512 GB of UFS 4.0 storage. The main camera offers 50 megapixel resolution and 6-axis "hybrid gimbal" OIS stabilization. There is also a 13 megapixel wide camera and 32 megapixel front camera with RGBW sensor. The 4,300 mAh battery can be topped up with 15-watt wireless charging or 30-watt wired charging. It has an IP68 rating for dust and water, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and comes in five colors: green, blue, red, black, and white. Although US pricing was not announced, it will come to the US by the end of the 3rd quarter.

Short support periods
No barometer, no bottom RGB LED notification light? No microSD?
Excellent (But does it have an SD card slot?)
