The ASUS 8Z and ASUS 8Z Flip are likely to launch soon as a product page has gone live on ASUS India’s website. The listing has revealed all the specifications and images of the ASUS 8Z. The appearance of the microsite suggests that the new 8Z series will be launching soon in India.
The ASUS 8Z and 8Z Flip monikers are not mentioned in the product pages. However, since their predecessor was called the ASUS 6Z, it is likely that the upcoming ASUS flagships for India will lack the ZenFone branding.

Due to a Delhi High Court order over a trademark issue, ASUS is not allowed to use ZenFone or Zen branding for its smartphones in India.
