The Taiwanese major has claimed that it sold 40,000 units of the ZenFone series within 4 days of its debut in Indian market. Notably, the ZenFone smartphone series has been launched online exclusively with Flipkart, while the handsets are also available from the company's authorised physical retail stores. Unfortunately, the company has not revealed the individual sales breakup of all three handsets in the ZenFone series.

Commenting on the ZenFone smartphones sales numbers, Peter Chang, Regional Head, South Asia and Country Manager, System Business Group, Asus India said, "We are overwhelmed with the response received within just 4 days of the launch. The reaction from the Indian masses has been astonishing owing to our partnership with Flipkart and our offline channels. Aesthetically crafted ZenFones have been successful to touch the heart of Indian tech lovers and we are affirmative that we are going to witness greater response in the near future."
