ASUS Philippines launches microsite and lists ZenFone 4 Max with specs

In line with the anticipation of the upcoming ZenFone 4 lineup, ASUS Philippines has just launched a microsite dedicated for this next generation of ZenFone smartphones. This new site is found at and the first device listed is the Zenfone 4 Max aka the "battery king" complete with photos and technical specifications.

The microsite, as shown above, shows the ZenFone 4 Max moniker with the photo of the device's rear and font panels giving us a full look at the smartphone and its dual camera set up on the back. And then there is a countdown timer on the homepage too to the official announcement of the new ZenFone 4 Series which is to happen on August 19th.

Interestingly, on this website, ASUS said this ZenFone 4 Max will have "HD IPS display" which translates to 1280x720 resolution. However, in Russia, where the phone was first made official earlier in July, it sports Full HD or 1920x1080 resolution. This part is a bit confusing, but we will all find out on August 19 when ASUS launches everything.

As for its camera, this is one of the ZenFone 4 devices to be equipped with dual camera set up on the back. It is not clear yet of the two lenses will have the same 13MP shooter as it is not really specified in the microsite, instead it only says "13 megapixel main camera plus 120-degree wide-angle secondary lens." Again to be clarified further at the launch event. On the front is an 8MP selfie camera equipped with Soft LED flash.

And then just like the previous Max series of ZenFone handsets, this ZenFone 4 Max houses a massive 5000mAh battery pack right out of the box. It doubles as a powerbank as well, again just like the previous Max's. The design is pretty similar to the ZenFone 3 Zoom especially the rear side, minus the fingerprint scanner which seemed to have been moved to the front right below the screen.
