In a big launch event in India, ASUS announced the ZenFone Max, a 5.5 inch device with a huge 5,000 mAh battery. The smartphone comes with a modest Snapdragon 410 chipset, most likely for its efficiency.
The ZenFone Max is built for longevity. Obviously, its number one feature is the huge 5,000 mAh battery. It’s non-removable, though with a capacity that big, there may not be a need to replace it on the fly anyway. Powering the device is a modest Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with four 1.2 GHz cores. It’s energy efficient to ensure you get the most out of the already huge battery, and has enough power to give you a smooth experience. Rest of the specs include an Adreno 306 GPU, 2GB RAM, and 8/16GB of storage with microSD support up to 128GB.
The ZenFone Max is also equipped with a 13 megapixel main camera with a large f/2.0 aperture, laser autofocus, and dual LED flash. Selfie enthusiasts were not left out, as a 5MP front camera will be enough for most.
