      if asus will price zenfone 3 series like zenfone 2 (excluding zenfone 3 deluxe and the 6.8″ variant), then 32GB-64GB variants will likely be 12000php-17000php price range.

    Maybe ASUS will price it lower here in the Philippines considering that it has to compete against cheap Chinese brands? Just wishing.

    At those prices, the 3 higher end model will not sell. I am eyeing the Ultra but at 30k, I go for the Galaxy A9 Pro, slightly smaller screen but 4k cheaper. Only the Selfie and the Max are priced to sell,

    Hopefully, the Philippines’ prices will be cheaper but it seems unlikely, given that Malaysia has a 0% duties and 6% sales tax on phones while we (Philippines) levies 0% duties and 12% sales tax (VAT).
