Asus was supposed to launch the ZenFone 6 in India on June 19, but a recent ruling by the Delhi High Court barred the Taiwanese company from launching any phone in India with the “ZenFone” branding. This led us to believe that Asus would either not launch the ZenFone 6 in India, or it would drop the ZenFone moniker, which seemed more plausible. And as expected, the company chose to go with the second option.
The ZenFone 6 has been listed on Indian e-commerce giant Flipkart’s website as “Asus 6z”, and the landing page reveals that the phone will be launched in India on June 19.
That said, at the time of writing this, Asus India’s official website still lists this flagship as ZenFone 6 and says that it’s coming soon on Flipkart.
The next hearing is on July 10, so we will have to wait until then to know if Asus will launch all its future smartphones in India sans the ZenFone branding.
