Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 Philippines Price is PHP 9,995 for 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM Version

I've just received an email from the PR team of Asus Philippines confirming that their mid-2018 Battery King ZenFone model will be officially launched in our country within June 2018.

They didn't give exact SRPs for the 3GB or 4GB RAM versions of the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 but I'm guessing that both should come in at under PHP 15,000 based on the prices of these variants in Malaysia.

Apart from being the first ZenFone model to run stock Android operating system (Yep! No Zen UI interface and all those bloatware.) this new model builds upon all the strengths of the Asus ZenFone Max Pro released earlier in 2018.

The AZFMaxProM1 also has a real metal shell, a 2.5D curved glass face, Dual Rear Camera module at the back with one sensor having a wide-angle lens for landscape photography, and of course - a ginormous battery pack that guarantees multiple days of uptime with regular use and even supports reverse charging.

If you're an Asus fan who doesn't like the novelty Notch feature on today's smartphones, I'm sure you'll be delighted to know that this handset's 5.99-inch FullHD+ IPS panel is notch-free.

For those who love to take selfies, this smartphone's 3GB and 4GB RAM versions have 8 MegaPixel front-facing camera with Soft LED flash, which means that you can snap self-portaits and even wefies even in settings where there's little ambient light like in bars.

I'm sure if the 6GB RAM version will be released in PH but that one has an ever higher resolution 16MP front-cam that delivers larger and (perhaps) clearer selfies.

If you ask me, though, the best thing about the Max Pro M1 is its Octa-Core 1.8 GHz Kryo 260 based Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Processor, which has been engineered to deliver up to 40% better CPU performance and 10% higher graphics performance versus its predecessor, all while maintaining excellent battery life via good energy efficiency. Also, the integrated Adreno 509 GPU delivers stunning visuals and smoother rendering of advanced 3D graphics.

If you demand multiple hours of enjoyable mobile gaming on your daily driver, this handset might be great for you.

For users who are concerned about security and privacy, this handset has both a Fingerprint Scanner at the back and Facial Recognition via the front-facing camera. So you can rest assured that no one would be able to easily access your content within the device without your knowledge.

Powered by a massive 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery, Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 - just like its siblings in Asus ZenFone's Max Line - gives you peace of mind that it won't run out of juice whilst you're on the road, away from an electrical outlet or powerbank.
