Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 Revealed – It’s An Absolute Mid-Range Killer

Asus has finally unveiled the successor to last year’s infamous Zenfone Max Pro M1. With the Max Pro M1 marking its first anniversary since it made its way to the market, Asus has finally decided to ramp up the successor to new heights.

Earlier this week, Asus announced Zenfone Max Pro M2 and just to let our excitement off, it’s incredible. Starting at just RM859 ( US $205), the new Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 offers quite the bang for the buck. It features a Snapdragon 660 SoC, up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Other specifications of regarding the device include the dual camera set up consisting of a 12MP + 5MP sensor along with a single 12MP selfie shooter up front. The display on the Zenfone Max Pro M2 is 6.3-inches diagonally and features a resolution of 2280 x 1080. The display is said to feature 450 nits worth of brightness and would be able to compete with the rest of the 2018 trendsetters thanks to its 90% screen-to-body ratio.

Regarding video capabilities, the device is able to record videos in up to 4K/30 FPS. Although some may find the 1080p video recording option a bummer since Asus has skipped on the whole 1080p/60FPS order here, instead, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 could only record videos at 1080p/30FPS out of the box.

Regarding connectivity and ports, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 comes with a healthy selection of ports and connectivity options, that is, if you exclude the Micro USB port at the bottom of the device. The headphone jack is present and well on the Zenfone Max Pro M2.

However, without a doubt, the biggest set features that are impressing us with this launch is the fact that not only do we get to see a revamped Gorilla Glass 6 rear body but we also get to see a 5000mAh battery in a form factor that’s no thicker than 8.5mm.

Out of the box, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 comes with Android 8.1 Oreo. Although to keep the enthusiasts happy for the new device, Asus has already promised to release the Android Pie update early next year if you’re concerned about updates.
