Earlier this month, the brand even listed the two devices, Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip, on its official Asus India website. This confirms that the devices will arrive in the country soon.

Sharma said that the company wants to ensure that there is ample supply to meet the high demand before the phones go up for sale.
