Asus outs ZenFone 3 series, ZenBook 3, Transformer 3 Pro in India

Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe

Asus has officially launched a boatload of new products in India, ranging from laptops and phones to various accessories to go along with it. The highly anticipated ZenFone 3 series of handsets range from mid-range to premium price tags, each encased in metal and running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

To recall, Asus had announced its ZenFone 3 lineup back in May this year. It’s since added a number of new devices to the series, most prominently in the form of a Snapdragon 821-running version of the ZenFone 3 Deluxe. This makes it the first phone in the world to run Qualcomm’s latest SoC. Other top highlights include its whopping 256GB of ROM and 6GB of RAM.

Interested buyers will have to shell out an eye-watering Rs 62999 for the ultimate version of the ZenFone 3 Deluxe. The brand also has a Snapdragon 820-based variant of the smartphone for people who are fine with a slightly slower CPU and lesser memory if it means they have to pay a significantly lower Rs 49999 for it.
