Asus first launched its flagship smartphone series, ZenFone 5, at MWC 2018 in Barcelona in late February. Among the lineup is the most premium of the lot, ZenFone 5Z. Now, it appears the Taiwanese giant’s flagship might be announced in India as soon as Tuesday, June 26. As per the teaser on Flipkart, the “Big Reveal” will be made on the website at 8:45pm on June 26. This smartphone will be exclusive to Flipkart, thanks to the “#OnlyOnFlipkart” banner.

With the phrase, “Flagship Redefined” the Walmart-owned e-commerce giant hints towards the launch of the Asus ZenFone 5Z. Even the patterns used on the landing page appear similar to ones used on the promotional shots of the Asus flagship. Other than that, there seems to be no official announcement from Asus, neither have any invites been sent out for an unveiling. We could expect Flipkart to reveal the name of the smartphone, with an actual release expected in the following week.
