US gets an official Zenfone 9 release date from ASUS

Update August 10, 2022:   Global Version available from a reputable and trustworthy 3rd party seller with free shipping. The North American Zenfone 9 variant is not available to buy yet. It might be September before you can get a North American specific Zenfone 9 model in your hands if you live in the US. This is a legit option if you want to buy one now and live in the US. Canada shoppers are out of luck with this one, sorry. If you don’t want to wait? Buy Now Options:

Option 2: More listing where you can actually buy a Zenfone 9 now. Full details and options here.

We can appreciate that every market in the world is asking when or if they might get a Zenfone 9 release date. The Zenfone 8 was a rather limited release but things are looking very promising for other parts of the world that missed out last time. We have something for people living in the US, and this also may apply to Canada as well.

US release date: September

This, according to ASUS via their ASUS North America twitter account. Here is a screenshot to verify the information we announcing here.

Of course as with all things in life, this is likely subject to change. However, we remain positive. This is actually a really be deal if ASUS can bring the Zenfone 9 to the US and Canada in September. We always seems to remember Oct and even November by the time the Zenfone models would end up in the US market. That’s our recollection anyways.

Not to put a damper on this news, but we do monitor what’s going on with the FCC and we haven’t seen the Zenfone 9 show up yet. This means something. We’ve never seen a device launch in less than around a month after showing up at the FCC. We always say, if it’s not at the FCC yet then a release is not close. We have a week or two until we get nervous and we will start to openly question the release date schedule for North America.

    I was curious is there a downside to using an unlocked international phone? I read that even though all the 5g bands may be listed. Some may not be activated from the factory. This causing connection issues in the worst case scenario
