Asus India was scheduled to launch the ROG Flow X13 and a new Zephyrus laptop in India on 12 May. Ahead of the launch event, Asus India Business Head, Arnold Su, has announced that the company is cancelling the 12 May launch event, and all other upcoming ROG and PC launches in India, in light of the growing COVID-19 crisis in the country.
“India is going through a very challenging time and our heart goes out to all in time of this crisis. We know the media has been awaiting the new ROG Flow X13 and Zephyrus line-up, however, keeping in view the current situation, Asus India has decided to cancel all upcoming PC and ROG launches,” Arnold Su said in a press statement.
