Asus is hosting an event in New Delhi on September 14, where it is likely to launch the new Zenfone 4-series smartphones in India. At a global launch event in Taiwan last month, Asus unveiled six smartphones in the Zenfone 4-series, including – the Zenfone 4, Zenfone 4 Pro, Zenfone 4 Max, Zenfone 4 Max Pro, Zenfone 4 Selfie, and the Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro. While it was earlier rumored that Asus could launch all six smartphones on September 14, the latest information paints a different picture.
Sources in contact with BGR India suggest that Asus will be launching two smartphones at the India event – Zenfone 4 Selfie, and the Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro. With the selfie-centric smartphones, Asus will be taking on Oppo and Vivo, both of which are dominant in the segment. And just like the Zenfone AR and Zenfone Zoom S, both the new selfie-centric smartphones will be sold exclusively via Flipkart.
