The Asus US online store was (and currently still is) the exclusive retailer for the Zenfone 3 Deluxe Special Edition. Pre orders started just over a week ago but now it’s showing as being “Sold Out”. The Special Edition is one of the most feature packed and fastest smartphones on the planet. It has a massive 256GB storage with the top end Snapdragon 821 processor.
More than that, the 64GB model with Snapdragon 820 is also sold out on the Asus US online store. The non Special Edition with 64GB storage and Snapdragon 820 processor is still available to pre order and we have all the details here.
With the price sensitivity out there right now, it’s interesting to see the Special Edition as being sold out. We can’t say what allotment was for the US market, so this much be much ado about nothing. Perhaps there simply weren’t that many units available for pre order. However the fact is the US market right now has no retail options for buying the Zenfone 3 Deluxe Special Edition. This development could spur Asus to have a wider retail release because the demand and interest is clearly there.
We don’t expect the “sold out” status to remain for long. Once supply gets updated, we’re expecting to see pre order begin once again. If you are very interested in this particular model, we have some suggestions and you can get this phone via Taiwan directly. Check out details here. So you can in fact still get this phone, but there are some associated.
