Cooling down is a priority

Zenfone 9 runs cooler - and faster - than ever, with a completely redesigned cooling system. It now uses a high-tech vapor chamber instead of heat pipes, and there's an advanced heat spreader that uses copper, graphite plates, and thermal paste. That's twice the size and offers a much greater cooling capacity3. The result? More speed, less heat!
