The Asus 8z is set to launch in India soon. The company has today confirmed to launch the smartphone on February 28. The Asus 8z launch event in India will take place at 12:00 pm (noon).

The Zenfone 8 series was earlier to be launched in India in May, around the same time when launched globally. But Asus postponed the launch due to the second wave of Covid 19 in India.
