There have been quite a number of rumours and leaks on Asus’ upcoming ZenFone 4 devices for the past few months, and now, the first device in the series – the Asus ZenFone 4 Max – has been made official in Russia. Boasting a very generous 5,000mAh battery and a dual-camera setup, the ZenFone 4 Max is quite an interesting mid-ranger.
Looking at official images of the ZenFone 4 Max, it seems to sport a metal build; it also looks rather premium, especially for a mid-range smartphone. In fact, the ZenFone 4 Max’s design is quite similar to the ZenFone 3 Zoom, right down to the placement of the two rear cameras.
Powering the ZenFone 4 Max is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 or 425 chipset, which is paired with a maximum of 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. Interestingly, this device now sports a slightly bigger 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, which should look much better than the ZenFone 3 Max’s 5.2-inch 720p display.
Other specifications of the ZenFone 4 Max include a 13MP dual-camera setup, an 8MP front-facing shooter, and ZenUI based on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
At the time of writing, full availability of the Asus ZenFone 4 Max have not been revealed yet. We do, however, have a price: the Snapdragon 425 model with 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM will go for only 13,900 Russian ruble – that comes up to about RM995.
