Note about 3rd Party Sellers: Mobile Advance is the best 3rd party and more reliable MSRP retailer on Amazon currently. Our links will get you to the right listings. If we don’t list the color or configuration, it’s because it’s not available at MSRP. You can trust us with current retail information! We are tracking in-stock Zenfone 9 inventory closely. We haven’t seen any “sold and shipped by Amazon.com” since the initial pre-orders went up on Amazon early in September. We recommend you order from a trusted 3rd party “Mobile Advance” who are legit ASUS partners. You you can trust them and they sell at MSRP so that tells you something!

It’s about time we set up our “go to” posting for all things related to ZenFone 9 pre order. We have been doing this for a few years now and we have our ear to the ground and finding out the latest and newest information. No matter what part of the world you are from, we hope to give you ZenFone 9 pre order options and where to buy.

When can I pre order the ZenFone 9?

Here is the pre order availability schedule, in order:

  1. Europe, Hong Kong, Taiwan
  2. North America, Japan, Indonesia and South America.

In select markets, pre orders for the ZenFone 9 have started up immediately following the unveiling event on July 28, 2022. Not all markets will get pre orders early. In the past the US and Canada didn’t get a new ZenFone release until September or October but let’s hope this year is earlier than past years.

What is the price of the ZenFone 9?

Update: We are hard at work trying to get the US pricing as we know a lot of our visitors are from the North America region. Multiple reviews from trusted sources are suggesting a starting price of $699 USD, however Engadget is still saying pricing for the US is yet to be determined. If ASUS brings the ZenFone 9 to the US market for $699 USD, which was the ZenFone 8 launch price, then that’s a real feat and a really aggressive (but probably necessary) move.

Here are the official prices in Euro. Please do not simply take these prices and convert to your local currency. This would no be an accurate price. Use our logic written below.

  • $699 USD / € 799 / £699.00 – 8G/128G (currently on sale from ASUS online stores in Europe and UK)
  • $749 USD / € 849 – 8G/256G (€ 879 in some markets)
  • $799 USD / € 899 / £749 – 16G/256G (€ 929 in some markets and on sale currently in UK)

We just did a price post here that goes over some of our initial feelings. We are confident in telling you that the ZenFone 9 will be more expensive that then launch price of the ZenFone 8 model with 8/256GB configuration. It’s up to you to scan local information to see what the original price was on that phone in your market. If you didn’t get a ZenFone 8 launch then it will be tricky to predict the price.

Is there a ZenFone 9 Flip model?

ASUS currently doesn’t have plans to release a new ZenFone “flip” version. It’s possible that the ZenFone Flip is EOL unfortunately. A sad day if the the iconic ASUS innovation is no more.

What are people saying about the ZenFone 9?

We always like to gauge the reaction to the new ZenFone releases based on various indicators online. Here is an early sampling. We are reading a LOT of positive comments from people who are genuinely excited about this ASUS phone and some are just learning about it now!

“One of the best small phones ever – TomsGuide.com review”

“This is strangely the most interesting phone I’ve heard announced in years.”

“Looks cute, has pretty much every conceivable flagship feature (except SD card and wireless charging), A somewhat sane pricing. Why not!”

“It has a headphone jack!”

“Okay, so, this is it, right?
My next phone.”

“THIS IS TRULY A MASTERPIECE IN SMALLER PACK”

“It’s perfect phone with perfect size.”

“I just love this phone, nothing like it. Will be my next phone for sure”

“Phone of the year for meee”

Will the ZenFone 9 be available to buy in the US and Canada?

This is an interesting question. The ZenFone 8 had a very limited release. The US market did get an official version, which is the “B” variant along with the US warranty. That model was not available in the Canadian market however. The ASUS US online store does not ship to Canada and the ASUS Canada online store doesn’t sell the ZenFone series. In our opinion, both the US and Canada will get to buy a ZenFone 9 with proper warranty for the region along with appropriate warranty.

    Who wants a ZenFone 9?

    Thanks for the info. Zf9 looks like a winner.

    Just giving everyone a heads-up that the Zenfone 9 is officially CONFIRMED to be getting a proper UK release – the page for it went live on ASUS’ UK site this week!! I couldn’t be more excited. My only hope, though this is a slim one, is that ASUS make us a proper UK charger plug this time! https://www.asus.com/uk/Mobile/Phones/ZenFone/Zenfone-9/
