Asus has introduced its ZenFone Max Pro (M1) smartphone in India. Built around a 6-inch 18:9 IPS LCD and 5,000mAh battery, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 has a dual camera on the back, Snapdragon 636 chipset with either 3GB, 4GB or 6GB of RAM. "India remains a key market for our smartphone business and we wanted India to be one of the first countries to receive our brand new ZenFone Max Pro (M1)", ASUS CEO Jerry Shen told reporters here. It runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 636 64-bit octa-core CPU (8 x Kryo 260 cores) with Adreno 509GPU.

In the camera department, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 offers a dual setup with a 13-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor at the back. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 sports a 5.99-inch FullView display with Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. The good thing is that it comes with triple slot offering two SIM slots and one microSD card slot. Other connectivity features include 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Global Positioning System.

Right off the bat, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro exuberates a sense of familiarity.

In 2012 and 2013, Avicii was nominated for two Grammy Awards for best dance recording. He was highly sought after and well regarded not only as an artist, but as a person.

On purchasing the Zenfone Max Pro M1, Vodafone prepaid customers will get 10GB additional data free every month for 12 months on plans priced at Rs 199 and above.

With the Zenfone Max Pro M1, Asus appears to have performance pretty much sorted. The front of the device houses an 8MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture and an LED flash. This new device is called the ZenFone Max Pro M1, and like the Max Plus, it's nearly entirely focused on long battery life. Asus, for the first time, is using stock Android on its smartphone, thanks to the Indian consumers love towards stock Android. On the software front, the company has finally heard its users loud and clear and made a decision to ship the phone with stock Android. That' seriously good pricing from Asus India and in the pricing front, the device competes with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and not the Note 5 Pro. The ZenFone Max Pro has a high-capacity, high-density 5000mAh battery supporting its Snapdragon 636 processor, the most powerful combination in the ZenFone Max Series, with custom-crafted battery design that packs maximum performance into minimum space.

The phone's industrial design sees Asus add a vertically mounted dual camera set-up on the top left corner and a fingerprint scanner at the back of the device. The battery also supports fast charging and it takes only 2 hours and 42 minutes to charge up to 100%. This variant will be released "soon" and will be priced at Rs. 14,999. Due to the camera bump, the phone can't be used easily when its placed on table, whereas the ZenFone Max Pro M1 can be used on a table without any such wobble trouble. The handset will also come with complete Flipkart Mobile Protection which can get for just Rs.49 more. But, considering my experience in doing smartphone reviews, battery life depends on the user.
