ASUS ZenFone Max M2

ASUS launched the much-awaited ZenFone Max Pro M2 last month, and it looks like the Taiwanese tech giant is wasting no time bringing another variant to Malaysian shores. The ZenFone Max M2 is the more affordable “non-Pro” version that features a similar 6.3-inch display but lower spec internals.

ASUS Malaysia has not released any details aside from a teaser image, but it is set to make an official announcement on 11 January 2019.

The ZenFone Max M2 sports a massive 4,000mAh battery, and is powered by the octa-core 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chip, with up to 4GB of RAM. ASUS claims the chip is 40 percent faster than its predecessor (SDM626) and delivers a 1.75X performance improvement over the ZenFone Max (M1).

ASUS ZenFone Max M2The device packs a 6.3-inch HD+ display (1520×720), boasting an 88 percent screen-to-body ratio.

ASUS ZenFone Max M2Unlike the “Pro” version that uses a glass-look plastic body, the ZenFone Max M2 retains a metal body design, measuring just 7.7mm at its thinnest point.

In the optics department, the phone features a 13MP f/1.8 + 2MP (depth) lens dual-camera setup with PDAF and Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS).

Another feature highlight is the triple card slot that lets you use two SIM cards and a microSD card for storage expansion (up to 2TB).

There are no pricing details at the moment, but in Indonesia the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage model goes for IDR2,299,000 (MYR666). If the Pro is what you need, it retails for MYR859 and MYR999 for the 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM models respectively. Both feature 64GB of storage. Check out my first impressions of the phone here.

Stay tuned for more details on 11 January 2019.
