Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 Could Be The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro Killer

ASUS is launching a new smartphone in its ever-expanding portfolio of mid-range phones. The new Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes in a variety of options which means almost everyone could find a version suited to their liking.

Display and Design

The design is not much to write home about, except that the bezels are pretty much kept to a minimum. The inverted dual rear-lens also gives the phone a high-end look.

The display on the front is a 6-inch FHD+ IPS panel with 2160 x 1080 resolution.

Internals and Storage

Powering the phone is the mid-end Snapdragon 636 processor with either 3, 4 or 6 GB of RAM.

The storage capacity for the first of these variants is 32 GB, while for the remaining it is set at 64 GB. Storage is expandable via a dedicated microSD card slot. All variants are dual-SIM by default as well.

Zenfone Max Pro M1 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with ZenUI.


The camera options also depend upon the model chosen. The 3 and 4 GB RAM versions make do with a 13 MP sensor coupled with a 5 MP lens, alongside an 8 MP sensor on the front.


ASUS Zenfone 5 Lite is a Camera-Focused Bezelless Midranger

The 6 GB version instead gets 16+5 MP on the back and 16 MP on the front.

Battery and Price

The battery capacity of all variants is set at a massive 5,000 mAh. Thankfully Asus outfitted the Max Pro M1 with fast charging, letting you top up an empty phone in 2.5 hours.

Currently, the phones are only available in India, the 3/32 GB variant will cost INR 11,000 (Rs. 19,200), 4/64 GB model INR 13,000 (Rs. 22,700), while the top end 6/64 GB version will come in at INR 15,000 (Rs. 26,200).

  • pakistan mei asus launch hi nai hoi screen protector or back cover ka masla hota hai

  • Asus is not succeed in Mobile market, they have bad reputation of upgrading and after sales service in the world. while not available in Pakistan at all.

  • No doubt a killer phone But if it comes in other countries especially in Pakistan it will be expensive
    More over they have priced it so low just to face the high budget competition in India set by xiomi and to save themselves from vanishing in smartphone business
    No wonder they would be getting extremely low profit on each device sale.

  • Where is redmi Note 5 Pro. They will launch it when it will be a year old. Pathetic. I know even launched late it will the best for its price but it should be launched sooner. Many are holding there breath (not Actually) for this device.

    p20 Lite is also about to be launched I think. Which is one beautiful phone. Huawei is really making some really beautiful phones lately.
