The Asus Zenfone 5Z went on sale in India earlier this month exclusively on Flipkart, but the initial launch didn’t include the top-most storage variant. Initially, the phone was available in two variants starting at Rs 29,999 for the 6GB RAM / 64GB storage option and Rs 32,999 for the 6GB RAM / 128GB storage variant. Asus will now be offering the 8GB RAM / 256GB storage variant, priced at Rs 36,999, from July 30, also on Flipkart.
Furthermore, buyers who purchase the phone with an Axis Bank credit or debit card will be entitled to Rs 2,000 off, bringing the price down to Rs 34,999. Additional offers include no-cost EMI schemes with 25 percent down payment, along with additional data and cash back on Jio plans. The Zenfone 5Z comes in two color options – meteor silver and midnight blue – but it isn’t clear yet if both of these color options will be offered for the 256GB storage variant.
