As promised, ZenFone 7 arrives in Europe – Full Details

ASUS has kept their promise regarding the Europe release of the ZenFone 7. We now have full details including price, release date and European countries with availability.

There is a bit of a change in availability and configurations on the ZenFone 7 (ZS670KS) so far. We are seeing a new combo with 8GB/128GB and no 6GB option available so far. The ZenFone 7 Pro (ZS671KS) is available to buy in the 8GB/256GB configuration. Both Black and White colors are available.

We are seeing this show up now in many online retailers across Europe. Too many to mention. It may take us a day to figure out countries that are excluded from the ZenFone 7 European release.

We see a 2-year warranty which is a nice added bonus!

Special Offer – you receive ZenEar wireless headphones for free if buying from ASUS online stores.

Price wise, if we just look at last years ZenFone 6 with 8GB/256GB with a non “plus” processor, this years ZenFone 7 Pro is 33% more expensive. Of course this isn’t an exact or fair comparison given that the ZenFone 7 Pro has the Snapdragon 865+ and not the 865.

As for who’s next? Likely Japan based on earlier reports. From there is where it gets interesting. Very few countries likely to go beyond this initial phase. Price and 5G issues are the factors in this situation. We’ve read from a well-known Indian tech journalist that the ZenFone 7 is not coming to India. Nothing official on that however, so let’s call that a rumor right now. However, ASUS India has not marketed anything regarding the ZenFone 7 and that silence is not a good indicator if you live there and want to buy one.

    Can’t seem to see this offer?

      Ah, this is need of an update and thanks for mentioning this. The last time I checked, for sure ASUS France online store had this offer. I will check if this expired or is available elsewhere. It was a ASUS online store promo but perhaps very limited at that. Thanks.
