Since the Indian market is densely populated with mid-range devices from domestic manufacturers like Micromax, Karbonn and others, the latest Zenfones from Asus will have to face a bit of trouble from them.

Another factor that would act against the sales of the newly launcehd Zenfone devices could possibly be the advent of the Xiaomi in India. Moreover, the company has already listed its first phone the Mi3 on its official Indian website at the price of Rs. 14,999. This is one of the best phones at the given price range which features Full HD display, Snapdragon 800 CPU and other high-end specs. Thus, it will be an interesting rivalry to watch between these new devices in the coming days in Indian market.
