“The alleged time-frame for the launch of the Zenfone Zoom and Zenwatch has also been revealed”
If a report from Business Today is to be believed, the Taiwanese smartphone maker ASUS will launch the Zenfone 2 in India soon. The publication claims to have received a time-frame for the launch of the Zenfone 2 from ASUS India Country Head Peter Chang during the launch event of the EeeBook X205.
As per the source, the ASUS Zenfone 2 will be launched in India in the starting of the second quarter this year, while the ASUS Zenfone Zoom will reach Indian shores by the end of Q2 or in Q3. Chang reportedly also said that the brand plans to launch the ASUS Zenwatch in India in March this year, but the company is facing supply issues with the wearable.
“We still plan to launch it in Q1, but now the problem is that we have too many products. So we need to also prioritize and we also have to ensure there is enough supply for existing countries,” said Chang about the smartwatch.
To recap, the ASUS Zenfone 2 was unveiled at CES in January as the world’s first smartphone with 4GB of RAM. Announced at the same event, the ASUS Zenfone Zoom is being touted by the vendor as the world’s thinnest smartphone with optical zoom.
