The Asus Zenfone 10 might be among the best telephones of 2023, however, the firm might want to be taught from the failings of the Asus Zenfone 9, which was in some ways one of the vital disappointing telephones of 2022.
It achieved 3.5 stars in our evaluation, which isn’t unhealthy in any respect, nevertheless, it’s an enormous drop from the 4.5 stars that the Asus Zenfone eight achieved in the earlier 12 months. These telephones have numerous potentials although, so we’re cautiously optimistic concerning the subsequent mannequin.
There’ll seemingly be some time to attend for it, and we haven’t actually heard something concerning the Asus Zenfone 10 but. As soon as we do, nonetheless, we’ll add any leaks, information, and rumors to this text. However, in the meantime, you’ll discover our launch date and worth predictions, together with a want record of issues we need to see.
Reduce to the chase
What’s it? The subsequent mannequin within the Zenfone line
When it’s out? Most likely around July 2023
How a lot will it value? It is prone to have a higher mid-range worth Asus Zenfone 10: launch date and worth
There’s no information on when the Asus Zenfone 10 would possibly launch nevertheless it most likely gained for fairly some time, because the Zenfone 9 solely landed in July 2022. Nonetheless, the corporate isn’t completely per its launches, because the Zenfone eight launched in Could of its launch 12 months, and the Zenfone 7 in August of its.
So we are able to say with any confidence when the Asus Zenfone 10 might be introduced, however, we’d guess across the center of 2023.
We will say how a lot it would value both, however for reference the Zenfone 9 begins at $699 / £699 (roughly AU$1,210), so the value of the Zenfone 10 may be related.
Asus Zenfone 10: information and leaks
Whereas we haven’t heard something concerning the Asus Zenfone 10 but, we all know that a number of Asus telephones might be powered by the Snapdragon eight Gen 2, so there’s an honest likelihood the Zenfone 10 might be amongst them, particularly because the Zenfone 9 was powered by the Snapdragon eight Plus Gen 1.
The Gen 2 would be the high Snapdragon chipset of 2023 (no less than until and till a Plus model is launched), and it’s prone to be the most effective chipset present in any Android cellphone for no less than the primary half of the 12 months.
What we need to see
The Asus Zenfone 9 left a lot of room for development, so the next issues are what we most need to see from the Zenfone 10.
1. Extra cameras
The Zenfone 9 might do with extra cameras.
The Asus Zenfone 9 solely has two rear cameras, which isn’t very many for Android cellphone requirements. So for the Zenfone 10, we’d wish to see no less than a 3rd added – particularly a telephoto one.
It could even be good if Asus might enhance the shutter pace, as in our Zenfone 9 evaluation we discovered the cellphone would usually take some time to truly snap a photograph, which might result in blurry pictures.
2. A cheaper price
The Asus Zenfone 9 has a higher mid-range worth, nevertheless, it’s verging on high-end, solely sitting just a little under the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S22 and iPhone 14. It’s additionally dearer than the Google Pixel 7, and the specs and options on supply simply can’t fairly justify that.
So for the Asus Zenfone 10, we’d wish to see both the value lowered, or a major enhancement within the cellphone itself.
3. A small display screen
The Zenfone 9 has a small display screen – hopefully, the Zenfone 10 will too.
The Zenfone 9 has a compact 5.9-inch show, and we wish the Asus Zenfone 10 to have an equally small display screen. So we’re not asking for modifications right here – we very a lot need that facet to remain identical.
There aren’t many compact telephones as of late, and particularly not ones with pretty high-end specs just like the Zenfone 9, so we’d like to see that continued with the Zenfone 10, as there’s certainly a viewer for them, nonetheless an area of interest.
4. A glass again
Regardless of having a reasonably premium worth, the Zenfone 9 has plastic again, which is one thing we’d extra anticipate from a financial cellphone, regardless of Samsung’s makes attempt to make it acceptable on the high-end.
So hopefully the Asus Zenfone 10 may have a glass again. We will think about it could add an enormous quantity to the fee, and it could make the cellphone each feel and appear considerably extra worthy of its seemingly higher mid-range worth.
5. An even bigger battery
The Zenfone 9 has a reasonably small 4,300mAh battery, and whereas it may appear cheap provided that it additionally has a reasonably small display screen, its price noting that the Sony Xperia 5 IV is just marginally greater, but manages to suit a 5,000mAh battery in.
Regardless, the Zenfone 9 doesn’t have nice battery life, so it’s clearly in want of an even bigger juice pack, or some optimizations, and we’d wish to see life improved for the Asus Zenfone 10. Whether it is, then you might find yourself being among the best small telephones.
