Logically, the Taiwanese manufacturer Asus must present the new series of smartphones Zenfone 8 in the coming weeks if we are to believe the schedule followed so far. He should see the Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Pro whose results were announced under Geekbench, thus providing details about the processor on board.
Next set of Asus smartphones The Zenfone 8 should count at least 3 models with 8 (Classic), 8 Pro and 8 mini, a reduced dimensioning device to easily fit a pocket and try to compete with the iPhone 12 mini or Google Pixels 4a 5G or Pixel 5, for example. Zenfone 8 mini will bear the number ASUS_I006D. The Zenfone 8 Pro will be the ASUS_I004D version and there will be another version of the ASUS_I007D that could represent the Zenfone 8.
Geekbench, a benchmark for testing smartphones
To test the initial performance of the device, the Geekbench app is perfect. Available for free on the Google Play Store download platform, it provides two main results for evaluating the capabilities of the device that can be easily compared with each other. Results are announced at the end of the test. There is no problem when the mobile phone is already commercially available, but it may happen that some devices are not yet officially available and are already in the hands of some users for testing or for various reasons. In this case, if the mobile phone is tested, some components are disclosed to the public.
ASUS_I004D is registered
On April 23, Geekbench recorded the mobile phone results with the ASUS_I004D pre-referenced to the Asus Zenfone 8 Pro smartphone, unless it is a version of Zenfone 8 which will bear the same reference as the Pro configuration. In any case, results were recorded indicating that the tested mobile phone was equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset associated with 8 GB of RAM. We can also see that the device is running Android 11, which is not surprising. Given the possibility of such a takeover, this bodes well that cell phones should not be late in their introduction.
