Asus has today launched a new mid-range smartphone dubbed as Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 in India. This means that the phone, in collaboration with some software tricks is capable of capturing images with good detail.

ZenFone Max Pro (M1) will be available for sale on e-commerce giant Flipkart from May 03, 2018. Here's our take on the new Asus phone.

Elsewhere, the ZenFone Max Pro M1 also comes with outstanding audio credentials, according to Asus.

The ZenFone Max Pro will feature dual-SIM slots as well as a microSD card slot for people who love lots of storage on their phones. The resolution of 2160×1080 pixels helps you to carve more from the display real estate. Also, comment down if you want to see a dedicated camera comparison between the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Zenfone Max Pro. One of the noteworthy aspects of the device is that the device, despite having the big screen, users can operate the phone single-handedly. 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. The company will also offer extra Rs. 1000 off over regular exchange value on selected models.

Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 has been launched in India, featuring a stock version of Android and a massive 5000mAh battery. Everything else is Google apps. The phone's price in India starts at Rs 13,999.

For photography, the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 comes equipped with a dual rear camera setup with a combination of a 13MPprimary Omnivision sensor with f/2.2 aperture, PDAF, 1.12μm pixel size, and a 5MP secondary dept sensing camera along with LED flash support. 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. Also given that it continues the legacy of the company's Zenfone Max lineup, it packs a 5000mAh battery under the hood, which also happens to be the USP of this handset. I have been using this phone for past two days and battery life is pretty good. Do let us know in the comments section below. Take a look at some shots captured using the Zenfone Max Pro.

But, under mixed usage, it will run for one and half day if not more. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform, with Adreno 509 graphics and runs on pure Android 8.1. The 3GB RAM+32GB storage version is priced at Rs 10,999, the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage version is available at Rs 12,999, while the third model includes 6GB RAM + 64GB storage version costs Rs 14,999.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro has a similar metal body with plastic on top and bottom for signal reception.

Moving on, Asus is joining the all screen and no bezel bandwagon with the ZenFone Max Pro M1. We are yet to test the video camera on the phone, which will be updated later.
