UK not getting Zenfone 3 according to Asus UK Twitter responses

We have had many inquires from UK visitors asking about the Zenfone 3 in the UK. After much digging, we have been able to conclude that the UK is not getting any Zenfone 3 models.

Here are a number of quotes from Asus via their UK Twitter channel:

“Hi, we won’t be releasing this device in the UK so we don’t have test samples to send out” – Nov 1, 2016, Asus UK Twitter reply to a question about the Zenfone 3. [source]


“We won’t be releasing the device in the UK. Some countries like France and Italy may do” – Oct 27, 2016, Asus UK Twitter reply to a question about the Zenfone 3 Ultra availability. [source]


“We have no plans to release these devices in the UK unfortunately” – Oct 14, 2016, Asus UK Twitter reply to a question about the Zenfone 3 and Zenfone 3 Deluxe. [source]


Based on what the Asus UK Twitter channel has said regarding other devices, you can trust what they have said. This isn’t a situation where some hope is mentioned or some possibility in the future exists. It sounds firm. The UK is not getting a Zenfone 3 release.

So what can you do? You can look at European models of the Zenfone 3 series and then decide on currency conversion and network compatibility. We will see if there are suitable solutions if you’re in the UK and want a Zenfone 3 that is not UK specific.

    When will Australia get zenfone 3 deluxe?!
    More importantly, when will ASUS grow up and actually provide info to their fans around the world?! Missing an estimated release date is far more forgivable than ignoring your followers all together.
    Asus is acting like a spoilt rich kid who doesn’t need any customers.
    I think I give up waiting. I’m just going to buy the google phone.
    If Asus is this bad at keeping their fans excited imagine how crappy they would be at support calls… Idiots
