At this pricing, the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 is one of the best smartphones available in the India smartphone space, which has received a lot of appreciation. And now, the ZenFone Max Pro becomes one of the most affordable smartphones in India with 6 GB of RAM.
The Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 has a full-metal unibody design with plastic antenna bands on the top and bottom portion of the smartphone. Also, note that the device has a 5.9 inch IPS LCD display with a 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
The smartphone beholds the latest dragon (Snapdragon 636) chipset with 8 physical cores with a maximum frequency of 1.8GHz, based on 14nm FinFET Process. This chipset is coupled with 6 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64 GB storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot for additional storage expansion.
In terms of optics, the 6 GB RAM model gets a slight bump compared to the 3 GB and 4 GB RAM iteration. The latest model from Asus has a dual camera set up at the back with a 16 MP + 5 MP solution and also has a 16 MP front-facing selfie camera at the front. In contrary, the 3 GB and 4 GB RAM models come with a 13 MP + 5 MP camera setup on the rear and an 8 MP camera on the front.
Overall, the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 seems like a great device for the asking price of Rs 14,999. Keep your fingers ready, as the smartphone is most likely to go out of stock in a matter of seconds. The close competitor to the ZenFone Max Pro M1 is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, which is also available in 6 GB RAM option for Rs 16,999.
