Taiwanese consumer electronics major Asus on December 19 launched the top-end Zenfone 3 Max variant in India.

The Zenfone 3 Max (ZC553KL) is an upgraded version of the ZC520TL model.  Both were launched in India last month on November 9. Only now, it has been made available in Indian stores. Key difference between the two is that while the former comes with the 5.5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) resolution screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor, 16MP camera with Laser autofocus and 8MP front snapper, the latter features smaller 5.2-inch HD (1280x720p) screen, MediaTek MT6737M quad-core CPU, 13MP primary shooter and a 5MP camera on the front.
