Taiwanese tech giant ASUS launched two new smartphones in India exactly a week ago – the ZenFone Max Pro (M2) and the ZenFone Max (M2). And, out of these two smartphones, the ZenFone Max Pro (M2) goes on sale today in India.
The ZenFone Max Pro (M2) will be sold exclusively through Flipkart in India, and, it will go on sale in the country at 12 pm today. The ZenFone Max Pro (M2) is a mid-range smartphone. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 SoC and comes in three configurations – 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage, 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage, and 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage. The smartphone also comes with a dedicated slot for microSD card that allows storage expansion up to 2 Terabytes.
The ZenFone Max Pro (M2) sports a 6.26-inch notched display that has an aspect ratio of 19:9 and a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. The display is covered by Gorilla Glass 6 to provide protection against scratches and cracks.
The back of the smartphone is also covered by glass and is home to a dual camera setup and a fingerprint scanner. The dual camera setup includes one 12 MP camera and one 5 MP camera; the latter of which is used for depth sensing so that you get Bokeh Effect in your photos. Having said that, there’s a 13 MP single shooter on the front inside the notch for selfies and video calls.
The ZenFone Max Pro (M2) also ships with a massive 5000 mAh battery which should get you through a full day on a single charge without any hiccups.
