ASUS Introduces ZenFone Max Pro (M1) Smartphone in India

Asus Zenfone Max Pro

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 smartphone takes on the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, which comes with the same Snapdragon 636 system-on-chip.

Under the hood, the latest Asus ZenFone smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile platform and Adreno 509 GPU inside coupled up to 6 GB of RAM.

However, the company chose to launch a new device specifically for the emerging markets. And at the same time, it puts the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro in some serious trouble. The display has a 2.5D curved glass on top as well.

ASUS has launched the phone in two colours, Deepsea Black and Gray. The phone also comes with Facebook and Instagram, pre-loaded, but apart from that everything is vanilla Android. The phone feels a lot like you're holding a Redmi Note 5 Pro, all the way from the taller form factor to the fingerprint scanner that's placed exactly at the same place at the back.

Asus, with the Zenfone Max Pro, is taking a different approach towards to the budget segment of the Indian smartphone market.

Answer: No, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is not water resistant. At the centre of it all is a 5.99-inch bezel-less display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

Question: What are the camera features of the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1? .

In fact, the strongest contender to the sensational Redmi Note 5 Pro in India. The phone was announced in the country today, boasting a large and powerful battery for longer battery life. The ZenFone Max Pro M1 is also expected to be available in a higher 6GB RAM variant in the future, with an updated rear camera. The 6GB+64GB variant will cost Rs. 14,999 and will have an upgraded dual camera setup. It comes with triple card slot for adding two nano SIM cards along with a MicroSD card. Its other features include 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi and Global Positioning System.

Zenfone Max Pro M1 is the first smartphone from Asus to ship with the stock version of Android Oreo out of the box. If not for the Google Search bar at the top, the interface e would look just like the one of the Google Pixel 2. This battery can easily last you well over a day. There is no Android One branding, but this is the very first Asus device to have an nearly stock Android experience (Although you will find "ZENUI" mentioned in the Settings).

Having spent a few hours with the phone, I am very impressed with Zenfone Max Pro. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 brings with it a dual camera setup consisting of PDAF ad LED Flash equipped a 13-Megapixel (f/2.2 aperture) + 5-Megapixel depth sensing lens. The images are well lit, crisp and yet beautifully smooth.

Photography-wise, the ZenFone Max Pro has a 13MP + 5MP pairing for the bokeh-enabled main camera, and on the other side there's an 8MP front camera plus an LED flash for easier selfies.

That being said, Asus will soon be introducing the 6GB RAM/64GB storage option of the Zenfone Max Pro M1 which will come with a 16-megapixel primary front sensor and a 16-megapixel front camera. The camera specifications aren't particularly impressive.
