If you’ve been trying to get your hands on the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe in the United States and found it very hard to order one, then you might not be the only one.
Asus opened pre-orders for the Zenfone 3 Deluxe smartphones in the United States earlier this month and confirmed they will start shipping on October 12. However, if you want to pre-order one from Asus’ online store you will have to wait for your smartphone to arrive until the last week of October.
The Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe with 4GB RAM and 5.5-inch display is available for pre-order now, but it won’t be available for delivery until October 26. The same goes for the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe version that packs 6GB RAM and sports a 5.7-inch display.
Moreover, if you want the most expensive, but also the better-featured, Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe Special Edition, then you’re out of luck. The smartphone is now sold out and Asus hasn’t updated the estimated time of arrival, so you will have to register to get notified about the phone’s availability.
Unfortunately for customers, there’s a high chance that the two Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe phones that are still up for pre-order to be sold out again, and in that case the next shipments will most likely arrive in November.
If you really want one, then now would be a good time to pre-order one, unless you’re more inclined to get the Special Edition and in that case you will have to wait until Asus makes it available for pre-order once again.
