ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1

Lazada Malaysia has done it again. The leading e-commerce platform cum serial-leakster has revealed yet another device ahead of its official launch. Fresh after the ZenFone 5 yesterday, the ZenFone Max Pro (M1) is the latest “victim” to be exposed via the careless online retail partner.

Many have labelled the ZenFone Max Pro as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 killer, and with good reason. Both share similar underpinnings, with the ASUS clearly winning the stakes in battery capacity and audio.

Speaking of which, the ZenFone Max Pro’s 5,000mAh battery will deliver up to 199 hours of music playback, or 34 days of standby time. If you prefer, you can binge-watch two seasons of Game of Thrones back to back, or 17.3 hours. I know right.

The rest is pretty neck-to-neck.

The device gets a 5.99-inch FHD+ display, runs a powerful Snapdragon 636 chipset with Kyro 260 cores and Adreno 509 GPU. This is coupled with 3GB or 4GB of RAM with up to 64GB of storage.

In the camera stakes, the device packs a 13MP + 5MP (depth) f/2.0 or 16MP + 5MP f/2.0 dual-camera shooters on the rear. On the front, it gets either an 8MP or 16MP f/2.2 selfie shooter with softlight LED flash.

One huge plus is the triple slot tray that can house two nano-SIMs and a microSD card.
