If you are in the market for a new ASUS smartphone, there might be the need to abreast with the firms many and confusing naming schemes. At a time other brands including Sony are trying to clean up their smartphone nomenclature, it appears the Taiwanese firm is poised to get things more confusing, as two more phones from the firm that tends to muddle things up could be dropping soon.
Today, two ASUS smartphones dubbed the Zenfone Max Shot and Zenfone Max Plus (M2) have been certified by Brazil’s telecommunications agency – ANATEL. These devices are not to be taken for the Zenfone Max Pro (M2) and Zenfone Max Plus (M1) which debuted last year.
Both devices at first glance look similar, at least from the images provided below, however, there are a few obvious differences. While the Zenfone Max Plus (M2) has a simpler dual camera setup of unknown configuration, the Zenfone Max Shot gets an additional camera sensor making a total of four with a LED flash below it. Both devices get a capacitive fingerprint sensor and are about the same dimensions.
Although the certification page didn’t reveal much about the device’s internal makeup, available schematic from the phones manual section suggest both devices could get a notched display, dual nano SIM slots and microSD slots, micro USB ports, as well as 3.5mm jacks.
