Last week, Taiwanese consumer electronics major Asus unveiled the new line of mobiles—Zenfone Max Pro M2 and the generic Zenfone Max M2 in India. Now, the top-end model will be finally up for grabs at noon on 18 December noon.
Asus' official e-commerce partner Flipkart will host the Zenfone Max Pro M2 sale for the time and will go live at 12:00 pm this Tuesday. It is the successor of the company's popular Zenfone Max Pro M1 and comes with huge upgrades.
The Zenfone Max Pro M2 comes in three configurations-- 3GB RAM+32GB storage, 4GB RAM+64GB storage and 6GB RAM+128GB storage for-- Rs 12,999, Rs 14,999 and Rs 16,999, respectively.
Is Zenfone Max Pro M2 worth investing your hard-earned money?
Absolutely Yes! I had the privilege of using the Zenfone Max Pro M2 (review) for little over a week and it has impressed me a lot, especially the design language, marathon battery life and my personal favourite the camera feature. The Asus phone's primary camera has marked an improvement over the predecessor.
For the uninitiated, the Zenfone Max M2 Pro sports a premium shell on the back with a good mix of metal and glass. It wonderfully encapsulates the frame and blends into the gorgeous 2.5D display on the front. It is one of the best visually appealing phone in the mid-range segment.
On the front, it sports 6.26-inch full HD+ screen with Gorilla Glass 6 series, which no other rival branded phone can boast off in its class. Even the top-end range too, there hardly two or three phones with the latest the Corning-made shield.
Under-the-hood, it houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core with 3GB/4GB/6GB RAM and 32GB/64GB storage (expandable up to 2TB via micro SD).
As far as the photography hardware is concerned, sports a feature-rich dual-camera module, one primary 12MP with Sony IMX486 sensor, F1.8 aperture, 6p lens, 1.25µm lens and a dedicated 5MP depth sensor. It also boasts Electronic Image Stabilisation and 4K Video recording and LED flash. [Check out sample images below]
On the front, it features a 13MP with F2.0 aperture, 1.12µm sensor and a LED flash, which will help get good quality images even in dark light condition.
The highlight feature of the new Asus phone is its massive 5,000mAh battery, which is more than to last two days under mixed-usage.
