Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 Launched; Priced in India at Rs 10999


Notably, it's the same chipset that can also be found inside Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro that was launched earlier this year.

The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 636 octa-core SoC with an Adreno 509 GPU. The dual camera system is assisted by PDAF and LED flash, and is capable of shooting 4K videos as well, something that is missing on the Redmi Note 5 Pro (but present in the cheaper Redmi Note 5). The display is very expansive and looks fabulous. One should be aware of the fact that it is not an Android One device like Xiaomi Mi A1 and Nokia 6 (2018) which means it includes some apps and features by ASUS.

The phone sports a 5.99-inch FHD+ IPS display and comes off with TruPallette and EcoPix technologies in its processor for an enhanced viewing experience. The screen also offers 85 per cent NTSC colour gamut, and a screen-to-body ratio of 83 per cent.

With a full metal build, the new ZenFone Max Pro now impresses with a 6-inch full HD display having a 18:9 aspect ratio.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is fuelled by a 5,000mAh battery along with fast-charging support.

Until now, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro was undoubtedly the best phone under 20K in India, powered by the powerful Snapdragon 636 and packed with superb specifications. The company has also mentioned a third variant with 6GB RAM, 64GB storage, a 16-megapixel+5-megapixel primary camera setup and a 16-megapixel front camera, all for Rs 14,999. Connectivity options include Dual-SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, BDS, GLONASS, 3.5mm headphone jack, micro-USB port.

The ASUS Zenfone Max Pro runs Android 8 Oreo - the newest version of Android without the Zenfone UI. This battery can easily last you well over a day. The images are well lit, crisp and yet beautifully smooth.

The device hosts a dual rear camera with 13 MP and 5 MP sensors. Up front, it will come with an 8-megapixel shooter with a front LED flash support. For the short time that we spent on the camera, we did get an impressive bunch of pictures in the well-lit environment though a lot still needs to be tested. It will take around 2 hours and 42 minutes to charge fully. This latest smartphone in the ZenFone series will be initially released in India and it will be available in other countries as well. Due to the camera bump, the phone can't be used easily when its placed on table, whereas the ZenFone Max Pro M1 can be used on a table without any such wobble trouble. Also, comment down if you want to see a dedicated camera comparison between the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Zenfone Max Pro. There's an 8MP front camera that can also shoot selfies with bokeh effects. Being a part of the Zenfone Max family, the Max Pro M1 gets a large 5000mAh battery.

The ZenFone Max Pro M1 will cost Rs 10,999/- for the 3GB RAM variant and Rs 12,999/- for the 4GB RAM variant.
