Late last month, the 6GB RAM variant of the smartphone received an update that brought in the Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) feature. It also rolled out the October security patch to the smartphone. Back then, it was announced that the 3GB and 4GB RAM variants of the device will get the update sometime soon. Now, the same has happened and users can make use of the EIS feature.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 EIS feature

The base and mid variants of the Asus smartphone have received an update with the build number 15.2016.1810.337, which weighs in at 82.74MB. It is a FOTA update and will be rolled out to all the units of the device in a couple of weeks.

The update brings the EIS feature, Live Wallpaper support and bug fixes. When it comes to the bug fixes, it resolves the ringtone issue while answering calls via Bluetooth, FM Radio issue that many users are facing and Wi-Fi compatibility issue with the Asus AC51U router.

Since its launch, this Asus smartphone poses a direct rivalry to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. While it was acclaimed for the impressive battery life, it missed out the EIS capability and was highly criticized for the same.

Basically, EIS aka Electronic Image Stabilization minimizes the blur and compensates the effects of shake while recording videos. Eventually, the video recording using the smartphone becomes great without any shaky and blurry effect even if the device is not kept stable.

In addition to the news regarding the update that brings EIS feature, we recently came across reports that the company is prepping a new device called Zenfone Max Pro M2, which will be the sequel to the Max Pro M1. This was is likely to be a significant upgrade running Android 9 Pie, triple cameras and improved specifications.
