Asus Zenfone 4 Max unveiled
Asus are on a roll. The Taiwanese manufacturers are on something akin to a streak, one that started with the release of the Zenfone AR a few weeks ago. We recently reported a list of Asus devices on the incoming queue, with all six listed devices being variations of the flagship Zenfone 4. The first of those has been unveiled, and it's rather interesting.
The Zenfone 4 Max, if the name wasn't enough indication, is meant to be battery-centric—which is, by all standards, a positive but only if performance isn't left behind. Unfortunately, the Zenfone 4 Max does just that. It's a decent device in all other aspects but raw performance power.
The Zenfone 4 Max sports a 5.5" FHD display, 13MP dual rear cameras, 8MP selfie shooter, and of course, a whopping 5000mAh battery. It comes in a slew of options, namely;
- Up to 4GB of RAM
- Up to 64GB of storage
- Snapdragon 430
- Snapdragon 435
Also, it ships with a 10W charger, which is rather inadequate for charging a battery of that size. On the flip side, it features a non-hybrid dual sim slot, which means you can use both of your sims and a MicroSD at the same time.
Global prices are unconfirmed but the model with a Snapdragon 425 and 2/16GB is expected to retail for $235 in Russia. Pricey.
