This is the first official news on the product's launch in India after Asus launched its affordable handset series earlier this year. There have been several rumours about the Zenfone 2 release in India since then, but the official word puts all such rumours to rest. In fact, the latest tip also sets aside the strongly speculated rumour about the Zenfone 2 launch during the company's 13 April event.
