The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 was launched in India with the hard mission of dethroning Xiaomi and its empire built by the Redmi Note series. Despite initial mistrust, the handset was pretty well received due to its competitive price and specifications that represent the best for the mid-range segment, to not mention the massive 5,000mAh battery.
Few months after India release, the handset was also announced in other countries in Asia. However, Asus seems to be preparing the Max Pro M1 to sail on European waters by August. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 recently popped in Spain where customers will be able to pre-order it for €250 (~$291). The smartphone is rumored to officially hit the shelves on August 13, two weeks ahead. Currently, we can’t say if the handset will be available in other countries of Europe, but the Spanish availability is a good signal.
The Zenfone Max Pro M1 is equipped with the Snapdragon 636 1.8Ghz Kyro Chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of Storage. On the camera department, the handset brings a dual-camera setup – 13MP+5MP – on the rear and an 8MP selfie snapper. The main selling point of this smartphone is, of course, it’s massive 5,000mAh battery that alongside the low-consuming 14nm chipset should provide a long endurance. Worth mentioning that this smartphone runs the purest vanilla Android 8.1 Oreo, so there’s no kind of fancy features from ZenUI.
