It is predictable that the Asus Zenfone 8 series would be released in India under a little different moniker, Asus 8Z. The Delhi High Court barred Asus from selling and promoting smartphones and accessories under the ‘Zen’ trademark in 2019. According to the Delhi High Court, the trademarks ‘Zen’ and ‘ZenMobile’ are protected by the Trade Marks Act of 1999, so it is prohibited from selling directly or indirectly mobile phones, accessories, or any other related products or goods that bear the trademarks Zen, Zenfone, or any identical trademarks.
