The ASUS 8Z will be a compact flagship powered by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform. The handset is expected to arrive as the challenger to Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, Xiaomi 11T series, and OnePlus 9RT in the Indian market.

ASUS 8Z India launch date

ASUS announced the ZenFone 8 and ZenFone 8 Flip in May 2021 in Europe. The ASUS 8Z and 8Z Flip flagship phones were expected to launch in Q3 last year since both phones had appeared on ASUS India’s website in August 2021. However, the company delayed the arrival of the 8Z lineup without releasing an official statement on it. Finally, now it has been confirmed that it will be unveiling the ASUS 8Z at 12 pm on February 28th, 2022, in India.

After the launch, the ASUS 8Z will be available for purchase through Flipkart. For those unaware, the Taiwanese manufacturer is not allowed to use ZenFone or Zen branding for its smartphones in India. Hence, the ZenFone 8 series will be arriving with ASUS 8Z branding in India. At present, it is unclear whether the company will be launching the ASUS 8Z Flip alongside the 8Z through the upcoming launch event.
