Where are the Rog Phone 6 and Zenfone 9?

Isn't Asus late to introduce its new phones? rog phone 5 march 10 zenfone 8 may 12 why haven't new models been released yet?


  • they didnt want to have another fiasco like with Rog5 and ZF8, I for one welcome to time for quality control.

  • If ASUS takes time to improve the quality & availability of smartphones which will launching next, I support them for this better works. 👍

    But the sad reality is - availability of ASUS smartphone are very very worst. ZenFone series are not available in all countries. Although availability of ROG phones are good, but every smartphone users are not gamers.

    👉In USA, only Zenfone 8 was launch, 8 flip was not launch.

    👉In my country India, ASUS properly launched Zenfone 6 ( aka ASUS 6z) in 2019. They totally skipped ZenFone 7 series in 2020. In May 2021 they promised ZenFone 8 series in India, their launching site (provided in Dinesh's tweet👇)

    shows both the models (ZF8 compact & ZF8 Flip). Unfortunately, ASUS launched only Zenfone 8 compact (aka ASUS 8z) in February 2022 i.e. after 8-9 months from global launch.

    #️⃣If any body from ASUS-India in this forum , I request you ,pls..... don't do this again 🙏

    properly bring all models at right time. We are die hard fan of ASUS's Flip Camera Mechanism.

    This time they really mishandled the launch. Even many tech reviewers refused to review the phone just because of it. Still, I bought the phone, because there are no alternatives. It's not that only Asus did it, other brands did it too. Only difference is they launched it with a newer name (Iqoo 9 in India is basically rebranded version Iqoo 8). Oneplus delayed the launch of Oneplus 9 RT (it wasn't as delayed as Zenfone but still launched with Android 11). Similarly many phones launched with Android 11 and a gen old Snapdragon 888 just like that. If Asus was more creative with their branding, they could have gotten away with the backlash.
