ASUS 8Z has been launched in India today after being delayed due to unknown reasons. The smartphone had debuted globally in May last year. It arrives as the successor to the ASUS 6Z that was announced way back in 2019. The Indian market didn’t receive the ASUS 7Z.
It’s worth noting that the Taiwanese brand has not launched the ASUS 8Z Flip that comes with a motorised flip camera module. The ASUS 8Z is a compact smartphone and competes against the likes of Vivo V23 Pro, OnePlus 9RT, Xiaomi 11T Pro (review), and others in the market.
