The Asus ZenFone Max Features a Whopping 5000mAh Battery
If you’re one of those people who are into longer battery life, then rejoice; Asus is giving you a real treat in the form of ZenFone Max.
During its ZenFestival in New Delhi on Thursday, Asus promised to bring a handful of its current devices to India. But it turns out the Taiwanese smartphone maker had one big surprise to share. The company announced the ZenFone Max, a mid-range phone with a massive 5,000mAh battery.
Besides the huge battery, the Asus ZenFone Max features a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.5-inch screen with a 720p resolution. Under the hood, it packs a slower Snapdragon 410 chipset and 2 GB of RAM, coupled by the Adreno 306 GPU.
The cameras are, though, more impressive than other specs. The device boasts a rear-facing 13-megapixel f/2.0 snapper with laser auto-focus and dual-tone LED flash. As for selfies and video chats, the 5-megapixel frontal shooter should be enough.
The phone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box with the company’s own Zen UI on top. It also supports dual-SIM, dual stand-by connectivity, along with LTE.
As from the above specifications, ASUS Zenfone Max features a mid-range hardware but the phone bets on extensive battery life.
We often hear smartphone owners complaining about the insufficient battery life on their devices. Although there are smartphones available in the market that pack batteries larger than 3,000mAh, even these are not that common. So Asus’ latest offering is a real beast.
The company however didn’t mention how long that hefty 5,000mAh battery actually keeps the handset going. To me, it should be enough to get you through multiple days of use on a single charge.
The Zenfone Max will hit retail locations sometime in October.
