After all the Zenfone Max(s) we saw last year including Zenfone 3 Max, Zenfone 4 Max, Zenfone 4 Max Pro series, Asus unveiled another Zenfone Max Series device. Asus Zenfone Max Plus (M1) is a new device from Asus which will be available across the globe shortly. Asus is finally going with the flow and adding the latest features into their smartphones just like this one, Asus added Face Lock technology to this new smartphone, but it came at a price….we will talk about that, but let’s check out the specs first.

Asus ZenFone Max Plus Specs

  • 5.7-inch HD/Full HD Display (18:9)
  • Octa-Core MediaTek MT6750T processor
  • Mali-T860 GPU
  • 3GB/4GB RAM
  • 32GB/64GB Internal Storage, Expandable via Micro-SD
  • 16MP + 8MP Dual Rear Camera
  • 16MP Front Camera, Face Unlock
  • 4130mAh Battery, Asus Power Master Technology
  • Andriod 7.1.1, Zen UI

As per specs the MediaTek MT6750T doesn’t look like a great processor to have these days, the smartphone industry is very competitive now and in the age of Low Prices Flagships, this configuration seems like of no use. Also, it runs on Android 7.1.1 which is also not that great, and there is no word on when we can expect the update.

Asus Zenfone Max PlusThe main thing to notice about the device is its Battery Capacity, Asus zenfone series features more than or 5000mAh Battery but this one is having a way much less, though Asus claims that their Asus PowerMaster” technology which optimizes performance and systems activities can supply up to twice as long backup as Zenfone 4 Max, these are quite big words… we can only tell that once the device is available. However the Asus Zenfone Max Plus is not all bad…

Asus Zenfone Max PlusThis is the First Smartphone from Asus to have a Full View display and Face Unlock, they finally modified their conventional design to fit the new display and fingerprint sensor, which is a good thing. Also, its the 3rd company to get Official Face Unlock after Apple and Oneplus did. Though Apple has the best tech and accuracy, and Oneplus’s sensor is insanely fast, we have to see how this Asus Zenfone Max Plus performs. Also, it has a dedicated Micro-SD card slot you can see the picture above, for those who care…
