ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 Launched and Priced at Php9,995


Not to be confused with another "Battery King" smartphone from ASUS called the ZenFone Max Plus M1, the latest battery centric handset ZenFone Max Pro M1 is now in the Philippines bearing Snapdragon 636 processor, dual rear camera, and a more massive 5000mAh battery out of the box.

In addition to the mentioned highlights above, this device is also powered by a stock version of Android 8.1 Oreo. That means, there is no ZenUI interface on top of it. And if that is something you have been looking for in a smartphone, the ZenFone Max Pro is the one for you, especially knowing it is aggressively priced under Php10K mark.

The ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 offers a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with the now almost-standard 18:9 aspect ratio screen. This makes the phone more immersive and having a nicely looking front panel with much less distraction. There is even no notch visible here.

As for its camera offerings, on the back are 13MP and 5MP camera combination right off the bat with up to f/2.2 aperture, PDAF, LED flash, and last but not least it now has dual bokeh effect. On the front is an 8MP selfie camera that comes equipped with Face Unlock, Live Beautification and Soft LED light features.

In addition to the powerful Snapdragon 636 with Adreno 509 GPU alongside it, a roomy 3GB of RAM will work side by side inside the device. Default storage is at 32GB and this can be expanded via microSD card (up to 1TB) which has its own slot besides dual SIM slot.

And of course its massive battery is one of the phone's highlights. It is really large, and it can definitely last you for more than two days on a single charge. If you think this will also make the charging time even longer, the answer is not. ASUS said from zero to 100%, it will only take about 2 hours and 42 minutes.
