On Monday, Taiwanese brand Asus said it postponed the launch of its Zenfone 8 series smartphones in India due to the Covid surge.
Standing in solidarity with the nation during these testing times, ASUS India said it had delayed the launch that was originally slated for this month until the current situation improves.
While we have been very excited to launch our new smartphone at the 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, – Dinesh Sharma, Business Head, Commercial PC and Smartphone, System Business Group, Asus in India.
“Hence we have consciously decided to defer the launch until the current scenario improves,” Sharma added.
The company will disclose the new launch date once the situation improves.
Asus ZenFone 8 series was likely to feature two phones — Asus ZenFone 8 and Asus ZenFone 8 Flip.
