When it comes to the specifications, the phone sports a big 6.78-inch AMOLED display that comes with 144Hz refresh rate to boast. It is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus and there’s a 24MP selfie camera on the front.
As for the back, it comes with a 64MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide lens, and a 8MP telephoto shooter. To back it up, its camera app features Qualcomm AI software that allows for features such as auto zoom and AI object tracking.
It’s kind of rare to see smartphones with fingerprint scanners at the back these days but that’s what you’ll get with it. That being said, the scanner being use is the company’s 2nd gen 3D Sonic Sensor.
In terms of storage, there’s 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage that’s mated with 16GB LPDDR5 RAM. Under the hood is a 4000mAh battery which you can charge with its included Qualcomm Quick Charge 5.0 charger.
The price? Well they’ve set it at US$1,499 (~RM6,276) and each purchase comes with a pair of TWS earbuds with Snapdragon Sound produced by Master & Dynamic, a phone case, Qualcomm Quick Charge 5.0 adapter, as well as two charging cables.
It is set for an August 2021 release but unfortunately there is no news about its availability here in Malaysia just yet. They did however mention that it will be available through ASUS online channels or ASUS partner online channels, depending on each market.

Pokdepinion: Featuring all the top-end hardware and features that Qualcomm has to offer, I didn’t expect the price to be affordable at all. I do like the camera design at the back though, it’s eye catching. However, that Snapdragon text just ruins it from being perfect for me..
