Meanwhile, the media invites sent for the launch of the device, suggest that the device could launch in India by the name Asus 6Z. Apparently, this move comes after an interim order which the Delhi High Court recently passed. The Court has directed the company to remove the “Zen” or “Zenfone” branding from all of their future devices.
