The Zenfone 3 Max will sport a giant 4,100mAh battery that will also double up as a power bank and can charge other devices as well. Unlike the previous Zenfone Max, the Zenfone 3 Max will launch in India in two variants. One with a 5.2-inch screen and a MediaTek Processor and the other with a 5.5-inch screen with a Qualcomm Processor. The price and availability details are yet to be announced.
Asus claims the 4,100mAh battery will give up to 38 days of standby time when using a 4G connection and 17 hours of 3G talk time. On the other hand, the 5.2-inch variant will have 30 days of 4G standby with 20 hours of 3G talk time on a single charge.
The 5.5-inch Zenfone 3 Max will also be the second smartphone in the market to sport the 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, which was first seen on the critically acclaimed Redmi 3S Prime, while the 5.2-inch variant will sport a quad-core MediaTek processor. Both variants will have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage which can be expanded using a microSD card.
The display of the 5.5-inch Zenfone 3 Max will be a full HD LCD IPS display while the 5.2-inch variant only has a 720p display. The camera too is different. The higher variant features a 16-megapixel rear camera with laser autofocus, f/2.0 aperture and dual LED flash. On the front, it will sport a 8-megapixel 84-degree wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture. The 5.2-inch Zenfone 3 max will feature a 13-megapixel rear camera along with a 5-megapixel front cam.
