In May this year, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 3GB RAM and 4GB RAM variants went on sale in India in two color options — Deepsea Black, and Grey. Later, last month, the 6GB RAM variant was introduced. Now, the company has introduced a new Blue color option for the Zenfone Max Pro M1 in India.
The Blue color variant of the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 will be available for purchase in India from Thursday, August 30 in all three variants — 3GB RAM, 4GB RAM, and 6GB RAM, at a starting price of Rs. 10,999, exclusively on Flipkart.
The phone features a 5.99-inch Full View Full HD+ display with 2160 x 1080 pixels screen resolution and support for 85 percent NTSC color gamut, 450-nits brightness. It has a contrast ratio of 1500:1 and a screen aspect ratio of 18:9.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 636 processor. It comes in three variants — 3GB RAM with 32GB storage, 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM with 64GB internal storage. It also supports microSD card, enabling users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity.
In terms of photography, the ZenFone Max Pro M1 features a vertically arranged dual camera setup equipped with Softlight LED on its rear panel. It comprises a 16-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with f/2.4 aperture for depth sensing. The features offered by the dual rear cameras include faster autofocus, PDAF, and 4K video shooting. On the front side, there’s an 8-megapixel snapper with a Softlight LED, which has been optimized to capture selfie shots with bokeh effect.
While Asus smartphones usually feature the company’s custom interface ZenUI, the ZenFone Max Pro M1 is the first phone that offers stock Android experience. It runs a pure version of Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box but the device is not a part of Google‘s Android One program.
Connectivity options on the device include Dual 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headphone jack, and micro USB 2.0 port. There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint reader for added security and the phone also supports Face Unlock feature.
It is powered by a high-density 5,000mAh battery that offers up to 199 hours of music playback, up to 25.3 hours of Full HD video playback, up to 28 hours of Wi-Fi browsing and up to 42 hours of 3G talk time. The battery also supports 10W fast charging and it takes 2.42 hours to charge it.
