Flipkart is offering up to Rs 10,000 discount on the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 as part of its Big Shopping Days promotional sales event.
The e-commerce giant says this is the first time that Asus’ new phone, that runs a stock version of Android and competes directly with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, has been put on such a discount offer. Potential buyers can get up to Rs 10,000 off on exchange. Flipkart is also offering a 10 per cent instant discount on SBI credit cards.
Moreover, Flipkart also seems to be pretty well stocked with the ZenFone Max Pro M1, which is a welcome relief for buyers, considering how difficult it is to get your hands on one. The ZenFone Max Pro M1 is available in two options: 3GB RAM and 32GB storage for Rs 10,999 and 4GB RAM and 64GB storage for Rs 12,999. Both the versions are now available for buying on Flipkart. Asus also has a third version, with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage, that will be made available in late July.
The biggest USP of the ZenFone Max Pro M1 is that it runs pure Android 8.1 Oreo, and not Asus’ custom ZenUI software. And it comes with good hardware.
The ZenFone Max Pro M1 comes with a 5.99-inch 1080p+ display with an unusual aspect ratio of 18:9 and a 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor under the hood. It comes with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage which is further expandable by up to 256GB via a dedicated micro-SD card slot. The dual-SIM phone supports 4G LTE (VoLTE-ready) and also USB OTG.
In terms of optics, the ZenFone Max Pro M1 comes with a dual rear camera system on the rear consisting of one 13-megapixel camera (f/2.2 aperture) and a secondary 5-megapixel camera for depth sensing. The dual camera system is assisted by PDAF and LED flash, and is capable of shooting 4K videos as well. On the front, the ZenFone Max Pro M1, comes with an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash. The front camera on-board the ZenFone Max Pro M1 can shoot software-assisted bokeh photos, and also supports face unlock.
The 5,000mAh battery inside the ZenFone Max Pro M1 is claimed to offer 34.1 days of 4G stand-by and 25.3 hours of 1080p video playback, and up to 35 hours of 3G talk-time. The phone also supports fast charging, and the charger that Asus is bundling in the box, can apparently charge the phone up to 30 minutes faster than a Redmi Note 5 which ships with a smaller 4,000mAh battery, according to the company. The ZenFone Max Pro M1, sadly, charges over standard micro-USB and not via USB Type-C.
