Zenfone 8 series would normally be presented to consumers on May 12. However, the company decided to postpone the Zenfone 8 series planned launch in India due to the intense coronavirus cases in the country.
While the number of cases in India continued to increase rapidly, manufacturers decided to postpone the introduction of their new products to a later date. Realme was doing this first, and now Asus has decided to do it. The Taiwanese manufacturer announced that it has delayed the launch of its Zenfone 8 series models here indefinitely.
