The Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom was set to land in the United States sometime this quarter (the company’s official website still says that). However, looks like that won’t be the case as Asus has now confirmed the launch has been delayed.
The confirmation came in the form of a reply to a query on Facebook, where-in the company said the device has been delayed until Q2. As for the reason, Asus says they want to release a better spec’d variant.
There’s currently no information on exactly what changes the Taiwanese company is planning to incorporate and how that will affect the pricing ($399 price tag was revealed earlier). Plus, an exact date or month when the phone will be launched in the US was also not revealed.
In case you missed, the Zenfone 3 Zoom is already available for purchase in Taiwan. The 64GB variant costs $485 there. The handset’s picing in China is also known – 128GB variant for $540.
