ASUS has unveiled two new ZenFone Max-series last month, the ZenFone Max (M2) and ZenFone Max Pro (M2) in India. We in Malaysia only receive the “Pro” version which we have done a review: [REVIEW] ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M2) – Beautiful Design, Capable Innards.
Look like Malaysia is bring the more budget-friendly ZenFone Max (M2). It has a less powerful processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 632, up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage. It has the same screen size 6.26-inch but lower resolution; 720 x 1,520 that give 269 ppi.
The ZenFone Max (M2) hs aluminium rear case and houses a smaller 4,000 mAh battery. Camera wise is are 13-megapixels assisted by a 2-megapixels dual rear camera setup where the selfie camera is an 8-megapixels camera sensor.
The Pro variant price started at RM 859 and we guessing it should be priced around RM 700 to RM 800 as the specification are very close with the ZenFone Max Pro (M1) that powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 636. The official price will be announced on the launch date, 11th Jan 2019.
