The Asus Zenfone 5Z comes in Midnight Blue and Meteor Silver colors. It is not clear which RAM and Storage version the company is planning to launch in India. The phone was introduced for 499 Euros (US$ 588 / Rs. 39,785 approx.) for the 6GB RAM with 128GB storage version. But it should be cheaper in India to compete with the OnePlus 6 and the Honor 10. We should know all the details when the phone goes official next Wednesday.
