The Asus Zenfone 10 is a smartphone that passes for a “compact” flagship by 2023 standards, with a 5.9 inch, 2400 x 1080 pixel display. But it’s very much a flagship device, with an AMOLED display that supports screen refresh rates up to 144 Hz, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, and a camera system that includes 6-axis gimbal stabilization that combines hardware and software to keep your videos and photos stable.

Asus says the phone will be available worldwide, but so far the company has only announced pricing for Europe, where the phone is up for pre-order starting today.

An entry-level model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will sell for €799, while an 8GB/256GB model is €849 and a 16GB/512GB version is €929.

All three versions feature LPDDR5X memory, UFS 4.0 storage, and other features including a 4,300 mAh battery with support for 30W wired or 15W wireless charging, IP68 water resistance, a fingerprint sensor in the power button, stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack (which is rare to find on a flagship these days).

The camera system includes:

  • 50MP primary
  • 13MP ultra-wide (120 degrees)
  • 32MP front-facing (uses pixel binning to save 8MP images)

Asus offers green, black, white, red, and blue color options and the company sells accessories including a “Connex Case” system which is a modular case that lets you attach a kickstand or business card holder to the bottom

  1. Sad to see that this is considered ‘compact’ these days. It’s hardly smaller than a Pixel 8, ~4mm shorter and 3mm thinner, and only barely thinner than an S23:,Samsung-Galaxy-S23,Google-Pixel-8/phones/12162,11999,12143

    You can see how drastic the difference is to the iPhone SE (OG), the last truly compact phone; the iPhone 13 mini is barely too big for one-handing, and that is still a significant difference there:,Apple-iPhone-SE,Apple-iPhone-13-mini/phones/12162,10001,11637

    I’d love to go back to the iPhone 5/Galaxy S4 mini days…

    1. it is almost the same size as an S23, it isbasically a flagship alternative to the S23 for those ppl who are avoiding Samsung for some reason.

      Buy the ultra-small Jelly Star when it comes out and save money

      1. Yea, the Jelly Star isn’t a ‘small’ phone either… it’s volume is 88cm^3, the iPhone 14’s is 82 cm^3.

  2. Sub six-inch display, headphone jack, and enough on-board storage to actually support a large offline audio and video library?

    The Zenfone 8 looked good, but I think Asus just made my dream phone. Hopefully it comes to the US market.
