ASUS is Now Bringing the New ZenFone 8 to India

ASUS is now bringing the ZenFone 8 to India. The company officially announced its release but hasn’t given a date yet.

ASUS ZenFone 8 Coming to India

If I am not wrong, it has been a while since ASUS first launched ZenFone 8. In fact, the company released the two devices, i.e. the ASUS ZenFone 8 and the ZenFone 8 Flip back in May this year. The device was previously launched in Europe. The ZenFone 8, almost two weeks ago, then came to the US.

Most recently, Dinesh Sharma of AUSU India tweeted about the company’s plan of action and said:

To all Fans asking me about our new smartphone’s India launch – the answer is yes. Team is relentlessly working towards the same and we will announce the launch date soon. Deeply appreciate your enthusiasm. Watch this space for more info https://asus.in/new-phone
