This week's update not only upgrades the ZenFone 3 Deluxe to a newer Android version, it also removes some of the bloat we complained about in our review past year, like the Do It Later and Quick Memo apps. Based on the phone's pricing in Indonesia and India, the ZenFone Max Pro M1 is likely to be a very close competitor to Xiaomi Redmi Note 5.
Camera-wise, the ZenFone Max Pro M1 offers a rear camera with up to 16MP main sensor alongside 5MP depth sensor while it is also accompanied with up to 16MP front camera depending on specific variant. The 3GB RAM variant is expected to cost Rs 10,999, while 4GB RAM variant will be prices at Rs 12,999.
While we managed to get a hands-on experience with the ZenFone Max Pro M1, it was a sample version (missing a free case and headset). The Taiwanese firm is reportedly planning to launch another variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage soon. Storage comes in either 32GB or 64GB onboard which is still expandable via a dedicated microSD slot. The new phone, available in black and grey colour, will reportedly be backed by a massive 5,000mAh battery. In the meantime, check out our hands-on pics with the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M below. It will also have 8-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash, the BGR report said.
