ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 Arriving in June


Through a post on ASUS Philippines' official Facebook page yesterday, the Taiwanese electronics giant has just confirmed that its most awaited Battery King smartphone - the ZenFone Max Pro M1 - is finally coming to the local market this month of June.

The post did not mention as to when, but the same page shows a scheduled livestream event on June 5. So we are assuming that would be it. But what's for sure is, this will be released sometime this month.

The ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 comes in multiple memory, storage, and camera configurations and as of yet we have no idea which one of those will be released in the Philippines.

RAM wise, there are three variants 3GB, 4GB, or 6GB configuration and anyone of those is either with 32GB or 64GB internal storage. We also assume that all versions support microSD card for additional storage purposes. Also, historically speaking, we usually get a 4GB-64GB not only from ASUS but also from other competitors, so maybe it is still going to be the same case here. Who knows.

Now on the camera department, there are two configurations for the ZenFone Max Pro M1. One comes with dual rear camera pegged at either  16MP+5MP and another with 13MP+5MP combination while the front shooter for both comes with either 8MP or 16MP.

And then of course, the main star of the house, the largest and definitely long lasting 5000mAh battery. ASUS promises this pack to last up to 35 days on standby mode on a single charge.

ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 specs:
  • 5.99-inch FullHD+ IPS Display
  • 18:9 aspect ratio
  • 2160 x 1080 resolution
  • 1.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 636 processor
  • Adreno 509
  • 3GB / 4GB / 6GB RAM
  • 32GB / 64GB internal storage
  • Supports microSD card
  • 16MP+5MP / 13MP+5MP dual rear camera
  • 8MP / 16MP front camera
  • Android 8.1 Oreo
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • 5000mAh battery
 In addition as to which variant we will be having in the Philippines, ASUS also did not mention the pricing for the device. This is expected though as official SRPs are usually revealed during formal  launch, so we'll have to wait a little longer on that.
