Asus will launch two new phones in India this week, including a 'global first'
Huawei is set to unveil the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro smartphones, as well as the Huawei Watch GT, tomorrow, October 16, while Asus is apparently planning a “global first launch in India” for the day after tomorrow.
The company had already announced a US event and pre-order start for the crazy powerful ROG Phone on October 18, but this is something different.
Two new smartphones for India will be presented on October 17 ahead of an exclusive regional release through Flipkart, one of which is scheduled to make its global debut at this local event.
The other may well be a ZenFone 5 variant not yet available in the world’s second-largest smartphone market. As for the all-new product, our list of suspects is headlined by the recently Russia-certified ZenFone Max (M2) and ZenFone Max Pro (M2).
We don’t know much about these two’s specifications, but obviously, their main goal is to carry on the legacy of the big-battery ZenFone Max family. Interestingly, the original ZenFone Max Pro is up for grabs in India, but not in countries like the US, which instead have had to settle for Zenfone Max and ZenFone Max Plus versions.
That means whatever Asus has in store for this October 17 shindig in India may or may not expand stateside at some point down the line.
