Asus recently unveiled the ZenFone 4 Max, a modestly spec’d smartphone that packs a massive 5,000 mAh battery.
Asus ZenFone 4 Max Specs, Price
I was a big fan of the first ZenFone Max. I loved that it could last more than 3 days in a single charge. It wasn’t perfect, but it does what’s intended — to last as long as possible. This time around, Asus unveils the 3rd iteration of the phone, opting to go with a monstrous mAh battery that it’s known for in the Asus ZenFone 4 Max.
Battery wise, the 2nd generation Max wasn’t as impressive as the first (you can read our review here). Asus corrected that with the ZenFone 4 Max by going back to a 5,000 mAh battery that made the first one last so long.
According to news reports, the phone will come in two versions with two different processors, an octa-core Snapdragon 430, and a quad-core Snapdragon 425. You’ll have up to 4GB RAM and choice of 16/32/64GB storage. If you need more space, it also comes with a dedicated microSD card slot.
One thing of note, is that it will come with a weak 10W charger. It means charging to 100% will be on par with the first ZenFone Max, which is around 4 hours or so.
As for the the rest of the specs, the Asus ZenFone 4 Max will come with a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display, 13MP dual rear cameras, an 8MP front camera, and the latest ZenUI based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
The Asus ZenFone 4 Max will initially launch in Russia with a price of RUB 13,900 or roughly below Php12,000 for the 2GB/16GB Snapdragon 425 variant. The price is almost on par with the ZenFone 3 Max when it launched (although it was the 3GB/32GB variant). No news yet of when or if it will launch in the Philippines.
Keeping my fingers crossed that it does make it here.
