Asus could be working on Zenfone Mini which is expected to be a compact flagship smartphone, as per the latest report. Asus has two smartphone series: the Zenfone and the ROG Phone lineup that is refreshed every year. The company also released a mid-range Zenfone Max Pro M-series but didn’t continue its development after two iterations. 

According to a fresh report by DigiTimes (via Notebookcheck), Asus wants to improve its smartphone business after a lukewarm Q3 2020 due to the pandemic and supply chain disruptions that ensued. Asus understands that it has lost some footing and wants to expand its smartphones portfolio. The Zenfone Mini is expected to be a compact flagship smartphone similar to Sony’s Xperia Compact phone.

There are no details about the Zenfone Mini just yet, but it is expected to feature a smaller display than the Zenfone 7 from 2020 which had a 6.67-inch screen. There is a scarcity of compact smartphones as more people now prefer to use large screen devices. However, Asus could likely want to tap into this compact smartphone segment in an attempt to ensure it stays afloat in the various smartphone markets around the world.

Asus could be following Apple’s footsteps, in that, the Cupertino giant also released the iPhone 12 Mini, a compact smartphone with the same flagship performance as the standard model. However, it remains to be seen when the Zenfone Mini breaks cover. 

That being said, the same report by DigiTimes also hints at the possible launch of the ROG Phone 5 by April or March-end. The ROG Phone 5 has been leaked in the past few weeks revealing its design and key specifications. 

The ROG Phone 5 is rumoured to be powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor

The ROG Phone 5 is rumoured to be powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor with a triple camera setup on the back headlined by a 64MP primary camera. 

Asus ROG Phone 5 could feature a 6.78-inch Full HD+ display with an AMOLED panel and 144Hz high refresh rate. It could be equipped with a 6,000mAh battery that supports 65W fast charging out-of-the-box.
