Asus has launched two new budget smartphones – the Zenfone Lite L1 and Zenfone Max M1 – as it tries to become a prominent brand in India’s competitive smartphone market. The company has announced these two devices months after the launch of Zenfone Max Pro M1, which has become one of the best-selling smartphones in the sub-Rs 15,000 price segment. Asus claims to have sold over 1 million Zenfone Max Pro M1 in India and the new devices being launched today will also be available exclusively on Flipkart.

According to IDC, India’s smartphone market is primarily driven by strong demand for smartphones in the sub-Rs 10,000 and sub-Rs 15,000 price segment. Xiaomi is the leader here with its Redmi series but it has seen competition from other smartphone makers and most recently from Realme. With the launch of Zenfone Max M1 and Zenfone Lite L1, Asus will be competing against Xiaomi Redmi 6A, Redmi 6 and Realme C1 in the Indian market.
