The battery king
Outstanding battery life is the signature feature of the Zenfone Max series, and despite its sleeker design Zenfone Max Pro still contains a monster long-lasting 5000 mAH battery. With up to 35 days 4G standby and 45 hours 3G talk time, this high-capacity battery has the stamina to endure longer than ever. It allows users to lose themselves for up to 10 hours of non-stop mobile gaming, enjoy 19 hours of YouTube movies, or browse the web via Wi-Fi for up to 23 hours. With Zenfone Max Pro, the user is in full control of their time.
Zenfone Max Pro is powered by the mighty 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform, incorporating the Qualcomm AI Engine, for smooth, responsive and power efficient performance. This CPU is up to 11% faster than the Snapdragon 636 found in the Zenfone Max Pro (M1), and graphics performance is improved by a massive 33% for more realistic visuals and faster 3D rendering. It also features 6 GB RAM more commonly found in flagships, and rarely seen in a smartphone in this price segment.
Durable all screen display
Zenfone Max Pro is the first phone in its class to use the latest and most premium Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6, which is designed to survive 15 consecutive one-meter drops onto rough surfaces and is up to 2X better than the previous-generation Gorilla Glass 5. With its 2.5D-curved front edges, Zenfone Max Pro looks amazing, and it's designed to stay that way. The latest all-screen high-res 6.3-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display with its 19:9 aspect ratio allowing even more immersive entertainment. The high-quality display, with its wide 94% NTSC color gamut, outstanding 450cd/m2 brightness and high 1500:1 contrast ratio.
The intelligent dual-camera system in Zenfone Max Pro is the most advanced ever seen in the Zenfone Max series. It features advanced AI Scene Detection — the same feature found in the flagship Zenfone 5 series — which allows users to concentrate on the subject and get perfect results every time.
The dual-camera system uses a high-resolution, incredibly light-sensitive Sony® IMX486 main sensor, with 1.9x light sensitivity, allowing Zenfone Max Pro to take any subject in its stride, and capture more-realistic photos at any time of day or night. Phase-detection Autofocus (PDAF) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) get rid of camera shake for blur-free handheld shots, with accurate focusing on any subject, in an instant.
Zenfone Max Pro ships with stock Android, that lets the user experience a stock version of Android without extra installed apps or bloatware. The combination of stock Android and huge battery life is to many Android users the perfect combination of features.
Zenfone Max Pro ships with Android 8.1, and will quickly be updated to Android 9 Pie which is already in Beta stage.
