Asus has now added a lower midranger to their Zenfone lineup and this time it’s dubbed the Zenfone Max. Unlike the last time, the Taiwanese OEM hadn’t brought any low range device along when their brought their second generation of the Zenfone 2 to India.
ASUS Zenfone Max specs:
5.5-inch display (unspecified resolution)
Gorilla Glass 4
Snapdragon 410 processor
13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, laser autofocus, and dual-tone LED flash
5MP front camera
Simple, clean and elegant design
As far as design goes, ASUS has proven itself as a company that can make elegant, beautiful products in any price range. From the beautiful Zen designs of their higher-end products to the simple but elegant approach to their more affordable tablet line, ASUS has shown it certainly has design chops. The Zenfone 5 is no different – the device has rounded edges and a softly curved back, with a nice matte finish in different colors. The Zenfone 5 also has small touches of the company’s Zen design language in the small strip of metal on the bottom of the phone, as well as on the volume rocker and power button located on the right side.
But eventually the company has launched the Zenfone Max with a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC coupled with a 2GB of RAM. The USP of this new device lies in the battery though – as it features a humongous 5000mAh battery for its class.
For people who have been following the announcement and eventual release of the Zenfone 5, you may have noticed that the internal specs of the device have changed a few times. ASUS actually released a 2GHz version of the Zenfone 5, as well as a model with just 1GB of RAM before finally settling on the model that they’re now selling in the PH market.
The ASUS Zenfone Max will reportedly be arriving in the market this October, but we still have no news on its pricing so stay tuned.
