Following its launch in Russia, later in Malaysia, the Asus Zenfone Max Plus (M1) is now making its way to other parts of Europe (Western Europe), with a price tag far above that of the Zenfone 4 Max Plus, despite offering much lower battery capacity and MediaTek MT6750T chipset.
Like we pointed out earlier, the Asus Zenfone Max Plus (M1) is, by all means, a mid-tier phone with a thin bezel display, the second after Asus launched Pegasus 4S in China. Its major selling points as suggested by the “Max” moniker, is the presence of a big battery capacity and probably a dual camera setup on the rear.
The device also boasts of a sturdy unimetal build fitted with a 5.7-inch HD+ display panel with 2.5D curved glass and a single 16 MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture on the front and a dual 16 MP + 8 MP camera and a fingerprint sensor on the flip side. The device is powered by a MediaTek MT6750T CPU coupled with 3 GB of RAM + 32 GB of and 4G RAM + 64 G storage variants.
Rounding off the spec sheet is a large 4,130 mAh battery with built-in fast charging, Android Nougat with ZenUI 4.0 and comes with full connectivity options including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi direct, Bluetooth 4.0, FM Radio, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port.
The device should be available in stores in the coming day. It is expected to retail for €300 in Sunlight Gold, Azure Silver, and Deepsea Black color options.
