Ever since Asus announced its Zenfone Max, their prime key feature was the humongous battery under the hood. As the time went by, the newer iteration of Zenfone Max gave the best for it’s price tag. Today, Asus Malaysia announced their new addition, Asus Zenfone Max Plus M1. This particular Zenfone Max will be a series of it’s own.

The M1 at the end of the name indicates the version of the device and this is the Mark One. Asus finally jumps into the 18:9 aspect ratio bandwagon.  It packs a 5.7″ HD Display in a 5.2″ body, which makes it look ultra compact. On the back, it still retains the dual camera setup but this time the configuration is up to want I expect. It comes with a 16MP Primary sensor and a 8MP Secondary sensor. The device runs a Mediatek MT6750T octa-core processor clocked in at 1.5GHz. They’ve included 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage under the hood.

They’ve also included a 10W Charger to make sure that your phone gets a full bar within a short period of time. Now, that they’ve opted in for a 18:9 ratio build, the buttons are now moved is now on screen and the fingerprint sensor is on the back of the device.
