The new Zenfone 4 Max comes with a 13MP dual camera on the back with a 120° field of view, along with an 8MP camera on the front, which can stitch 140° selfie panoramas. It is expected to launch in Russia in the coming days, priced at RUB 13,900 ($235/€205) for the S425 quad-core model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage.
