ASUS recently announced that it will introduce the ZenFone 8 series smartphone on May 12th in a global event. Even the specifications of the ZenFone 8 and the ZenFone 8 Flip surfaced recently. Now the ASUS India has announced that the company wanted to launch the ZenFone 8 series phones in India along with the global launch on May 12th, but it will now postpone the launch.
The reason for postponing the launch is due to the rise in Covid-19 cases in the country. Several states in the country have gone into lockdown, and only the essentials are available in most of these regions. realme was supposed to launch several new produces at its May 4th event in India, but it decided to postpone due to the pandemic.
To remind you, the company did not launch the ZenFone 7 series in the country last year. We should know details about the new launch date of the ZenFone 8 series from ASUS once the situation improves.
Dinesh Sharma, Business Head, Commercial PC and Smartphone, System Business Group, ASUS India in a statement, said:
While we have been very excited to launch our new smartphone at same time as global, ASUS India’s top priority in these challenging times is the safety of our customers, partners, employees and all other stakeholders in the fight against the virus. Hence we have consciously decided to defer the launch until the current scenario improves.
