One of ASUS's focus markets is Russian Federation - certain new smartphone models have made their debuts there, but this one is, perhaps, a little more critical than usual as it not only launches the brand into the market with a 2:1 aspect ratio display.
The ASUS Zenfone Max Plus (M1) comes with a 5.7-inch IPS LCD screen and supports a screen resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels (reported here). It is expected that the device will soon be announced in other markets. It comes in two different memory configurations: 2GB RAM with 16GB storage and 3GB RAM with 32GB storage. Zenfone Max Plus gets its juice from a large 4130mAh non-removable battery which offers up to 24 days standby time and 24 hours of talk time. Under the hood, the Zenfone Max Plus (M1) has a mediocre MediaTek MT6750T SoC, which also powered the Asus Zenfone 3s Max launched past year. In case you are wondering, storage expansion is possible up to 256GB using microSD card. The primary sensor has PDAF, f/2.0 aperture and the secondary sensor has 120-degree wide-angle lens. We have seen this same processor to be used in the previous ASUS's Zenfone 3S Max. Up front, Asus has added an 8MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. For photography, it will come with a dual camera setup consisting of 16MP standard lens and 8MP wide angle lens. Some of the key highlights of this smartphone are 18:9 minimal bezel display, dual rear camera and 4,130mAh battery.
