ASUS is yet to launch their upcoming Zenfone 4 series in September but the company is already shelling out not only information about the upcoming series but an actual device itself with an actual launch in Russia. The device that we are talking about is the new Zenfone 4 Max which can’t seem to wait for a few more months to make its way to the hands of customers.
From the looks of it, the new Zenfone 4 series is indeed focusing on optics this time and the Zenfone 4 Max shows that evidently with dual camera modules is understandably no longer tied to the Zoom variant of the Zenfone series which came out first with the Zenfone 3 Zoom sporting a dual imaging sensors. The Zenfone 4 Max includes a dual 13 Megapixel sensors on the rear backed by an LED flash feature an f/2.0 aperture and Autofocus. On the front, there’s an 8 Megapixel Selfie camera that records 1080p videos and an f/2.2 aperture.
The new Zenfone 4 Max has a familiar looking design built in full metal and comes with a 5.5-inch s-IPS full-HD display. Underneath the metal casing is rather an entry-level powerhouse with Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset however, this is paired to 4GB of RAM and has either a 32GB or 64GB of expandable storage.
Battery capacity has always been the main feature of a Zenfone Max device and the Zenfone 4 Max is improving with these feature with a hefty 5000 mAh built-in battery pack which should not only power the device itself but could also serve as a powerbank for other devices.
The handset is expected to become available later this month in Russia with a suggested retail price of 13,900 rubles or to an equivalent of $US 235 when converted.
