In a post on its social media channels, ASUS Malaysia announced that its popular ZenFone Max Pro (M1), specifically the 4GB + 64GB storage model, has a shipment delay. Delivery of pre-orders was initially slated to happen between 28 June to 5 July 2018

ASUS apologised to buyers for the delay, and a token of apology, it is offering a free 32GB microSD card with the ZenFone Max Pro when it is shipped from 10 July onwards.

[NOTICE] Dear ZenFone Max Pro (M1) 4GB + 64GB Buyers, we truly apologize for this delay. As we speak, we are improving…

Posted by ASUS on Monday, June 25, 2018

Judging from postings on social media, reactions to the delay has been mixed. Some expressed high disappointment for the long delays while others were more nonchalant and forgiving, and thanked ASUS for the free gift.

As a pre-order promo on 3 June, the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage ZenFone Max Pro is offered at a MYR799 price (RRP: MYR849).

The base 3GB RAM + 32GB storage model on the other hand retails for MYR699 but has been offered at MYR599 for several weeks as part of Lazada’s weekly flash sales.

The top end 6GB RAM + 64GB storage model is still nowhere to be found, as it is still experiencing a worldwide shortage, according to ASUS. It may hit local shores in July.

As a quick refresher, the ZenFone Max Pro is positioned as a “limitless gaming smartphone” offering impressive battery life and graphics performance.

It features a 5.99-inch FHD+ display and powerful but power-efficient octa-core Snapdragon 636 chipset with Adreno 509 GPU.

It offers a triple slot tray so you don’t have to sacrifice a SIM slot if you need to plug in a microSD card.

The massive 5,000mAh cell is its claim to fame, an amazing feat considering the phone’s form factor and slim body. That translates to 42 hours of 3G talktime, up to 19.5 hours of YouTube or up to 12 hours of gaming.

It’s pretty much a no-brainer buy. If you still need convincing, read this review.
