Asus has brought its A-game to the table with the Zenfone Max Pro (M1). The new phone gives Xiaomi's Redmi Note 5 Pro a run for its money. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro (M1) comes with a metal build and a fingerprint sensor at the back. It sports a fullscreen 5.99-inch Full HD+ 2.5D curved glass display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a 1.8 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 636 processor.
It comes with a dedicated microSD card slot which takes up to 2 TB. On the optics front, it comes with 13 MP+ 5 MP dual camera sensors at the rear where the former is an RGB sensor and the latter is the depth sensor. The front gets an 8-megapixel selfie snapper accompanied by an LED flash light.
The handset gets a 3.5 mm audio jack, 5-magnet loudspeaker and a bundled passive sound amplifier to enhance the multimedia experience. Asus has moved away from its ZenUI for this handset as it comes loaded with stock Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
