ASUS ZenFone 8 Flip teardown can be quite a chore

While most of the smartphone world seems to have outgrown their popup and flip camera phase, ASUS has gone old school this year.

Android 12 Beta and the phones you can put it on

ASUS ZenFone 8 Flip leak shows the camera gimmick is back

There was a point in time in the mobile industry's history that smartphone makers were scrambling to figure out ways to push out almost all the bezels from a phone's face.
