* Postpones the launch of next generation ASUS smartphone that is being launched globally in May 2021
ASUS, a Taiwan-head-quartered, multinational computer hardware as well as consumer electronics, has postponed the launch of new ASUS smartphones in India due to the recent surge in COVID 19 cases in the country. Standing in solidarity with the nation during these testing times, ASUS India has delayed the launch that was originally slated during May, until the current situation improves.
“While we have been very excited to launch our new smartphone at same time as global, ASUS India’s top priority in these challenging times is the safety of our customers, partners, employees and all other stakeholders in the fight against the virus. Hence we have consciously decided to defer the launch until the current scenario improves. On behalf of the entire ASUS India family, we urge you to stay indoors, practice social distancing and help each other combat this crisis until we emerge stronger and in a safer environment.” said Dinesh Sharma, Business Head, Commercial PC and Smartphone, System Business Group, ASUS in India.
ASUS India will disclose the new launch date once the situation improves.
