The first addition to the Zenfone 4 lineup is the Zenfone 4 Max which is officially available for purchase in Russia for RUB 13,900 (around PKR 24,600). The price may lead one to believe the smartphone specifications might veer towards the low-range category. However, that is clearly not the case with the Zenfone 4 Max.
The phone is currently only available in Russia. It is expected to be released in other regions by the end of July 2017.
Asus ZenFone 4 Max
The ZenFone 4 Max sports a 5.5 FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS LCD panel. It weighs in at 181 grams which is slightly on the heavier side. The smartphone is said to come in three color variants: Titanium Grey, Rose Pink and Sand Gold.
The ZenFone 4 Max will come in two variants (based on the region) with either Snapdragon 425 (quad core) or 430 (octa core). It will come with 4 GB of RAM and 16/32/64GB internal storage with support for micro SD cards as well.
Asus has stuffed in a 13 MP dual camera setup in the ZenFone 4 Max. It has a large 120° field of view and comes with an LED flash. The front camera uses an 8 MP f/2.2 sensor and is capable of creating large 140° selfie panoramas.
It comes with a humongous 5000 mAh battery which can also be used as a power bank via USB OTG. The in box charger is weak (4 hours from 0-100%) however the phone does support fast charging.
This makes it one of the cheapest dual camera setups in the market. The massive battery paired with the power efficient 400 series processors will make this one of the longest lasting phones.
