According to the phone’s Geekbench page, it may have up to 16 GB of RAM. There is no information on the device’s battery capacity. Its TÜV SÜD qualification, on the other hand, disclosed that it could allow 30W rapid charging.
A Sony IMX686 64-megapixel camera and a new Sony IMX663 camera could be used in the ZenFone 8 Mini. A Cirrus CS35L45 amplifier is also planned to be included in the device.
