The ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 is a pretty long name for a phone. But if you are planning on taking on one of the best mid-range phones on the market (Redmi Note 5 Pro), you might as well come with a longer name.
The Zenfone Max Pro M1 launched a few months ago in India. When it was announced, ASUS revealed it would be available in three variants – 3GB RAM + 32GB, 4GB RAM + 64GB, and 6GB RAM + 64GB. However, only the 3GB RAM and 4GB RAM variants are available for purchase. That may be changing soon as the page for the 6GB RAM variant has been seen on Flipkart.
The page is still under construction but the page source does reveal some key details. The 6GB RAM variant not only has more RAM but also comes with better cameras according to the page source.
Unlike the other variants which have a 13MP primary camera on the rear, the 6GB RAM Zenfone Max Pro M1 has a 16MP sensor. Its selfie camera has also been upped from 8MP to 16MP. Its price tag which was already announced at the launch event is INR 14,999 (~$221).
The rest of the specs are the same. It has a 5.99-inch FHD+ screen, a Snapdragon 636 processor, and a 5,000mAh battery. There is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Face Unlock, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, Android 8.1 Oreo, and dual-SIM slot. It also has a microSD card slot.
