Asus has started sending out press invites for an event on September 21 in Rome, and the company is largely expected to launch the Asus ZenFone 4 series for Europe.

Also, the smartphones were recently tipped to be unveiled in July, and the Asus ZenFone 4 family could see a launch much earlier in regions other than Europe, where it may be slated for a September release.
