Asus is all set to launch the ZenFone 3 series in India today, but just a few hours ahead of the event in New Delhi, Snapdeal has leaked the price of at least one of the smartphones in the lineup - the ZenFone 3.
An offer page has gone up on Snapdeal that at the time of writing hadn't yet been pulled down. It lists the Asus ZenFone 3 (ZE520KL) at Rs. 21,999 - significantly higher than the global price at launch - $249, which translates to roughly Rs. 16,800.
The company appears only to have brought the 3GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage model to India, though it had announced a 4GB RAM and 64GB storage model - the Asus ZenFone 3 (ZE552KL) - at the May launch in Taipei. The smartphone is listed to go on sale at 5pm IST on Snapdeal.
To recall, the ZenFone 3 features a 5.5-inch full-HD Super IPS LCD display, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of inbuilt storage, microSD card support (up to 128GB), a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, USB Type-C port, and a 3000mAh battery.
So for, there's no mention of whether the company will launch other models in the ZenFone 3 lineup in India - specifically the ZenFone 3 Deluxe, ZenFone 3 Ultra, ZenFone 3 Laser, and ZenFone 3 Max. We'll have to wait for the official announcement later today to see what the company has in store for the Indian market.
