The Taiwanees tech giant Asus launched the all new Zenfone Max Pro M1 model smartphone in India. Its highest configuration model has 6 GB of RAM and a native storage of 64 GB. The Taiwanese company had mentioned the device to come with Snapdragon 636 processor. It has hybrid slot which can act as dual sim slot or expandable slot.
Answer: Yes, the phone supports 4G VoLTE.
The latest such device is called ZenFone Max Pro M1, and it shouldn’t be confused with either the ZenFone Max Plus M1 or ZenFone 4 Max Pro. You can consider expanding the storage up to 2TB via microSD card. MIUI is quite a heavy skin when compared to stock android, since it comes with many features and gestures. The device runs on stock Android 8.1 Oreo, which is very much welcome.
Moving on, Asus is joining the all screen and no bezel bandwagon with the ZenFone Max Pro M1. Although the phone doesn’t feature the iPhone X-like notch, it does come with a similar orientation for the dual camera setup positioned vertically on the upper left corner of the phone’s back. Both the cameras get LED flash for low light situations. It will also notice changes in terms of camera department.
On the rear, there is a dual camera setup that includes a primary 13MP f/2.2 camera and a secondary 5MP camera for getting the depth information. The rear camera can record up to 4K videos and front camera can record up to full HD videos. And another best part is the weight is evenly distributed, which doesn’t give you a feel of holding a device with 5000mAh battery. The phone sips its juice from a mammoth 5000mAh battery which will offer 1080p continuous video playback up to 25.3 hours, WiFi browsing up to 28 hours.
