I wonder if it is (or will be) possible to root without voiding warranty for Zenfone 9. It's the only thing keeping me away from picking this phone up.
Depends where you are.
If you're in EU, you're good. Your 2 year warranty is protected if you perform any kind of software/firmware changes ( unless you're bricking it. It's not covered under warranty cuz it's something you did wrong)

If i am right this is no problem in EU. They must prove that the defect is based on the changes you made with root (flashing the wrong things for example). "Normal" hardware defects in screen, speaker or battery etc. will be changed/repaired under warrenty. If you use a (root requiring) tool that burns your screen, its not (if they detect it).

On Asus site (unlock tool):
"In addition, the software and hardware problems of your ASUS product caused by using the Service may not apply to your ASUS Warranty Information."
