The mid-end phone is exclusive to Flipkart and will start selling from May 3.

But perhaps the biggest surprise that the Zenfone Max Pro packs in is that running all this is stock Android.

Asus has a bunch of offers if you purchase the Zenfone Max Pro M1.

While the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is the world's first smartphone to use the Snapdragon 636, the Zenfone 5 unveiled at the MWC 2018 also uses the same chipset. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor coupled with 3GB/4GB RAM and Adreno 509 GPU. Being a part of the Zenfone Max family, the Max Pro M1 gets a large 5000mAh battery.

The Snapdragon 636 is a 14nm 64-bit system-on-a-chip (SoC) with up to 6GB RAM. As with most front-facing cameras from top phone makers, the ZenFone Max Pro comes with a soft light LED flash.

We all know that Max is a smartphone series that focuses on battery. With so much power on tap, ASUS said users can browse more, game more, stream more and talk as much as they want without worrying about finding a power outlet. Asus claims the battery can offer over 30 days of stand-by time, over 25 hours of 1080p video playback, and up to 35 hours of 3G talktime. While it definitely isn't the best mobile processor out there, it should be capable enough to do what most mainstream users expect out of a smartphone.

This is once again one of the strongest points of the Zenfone Max Pro M1 as it comes with a huge 5000mAh battery while the Redmi Note 5 Pro is shipped with a 4000mAh non-removable battery with Quick Charge 2.0 support. It sports a 5.99-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) IPS Full View display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Multitasking is also easier, as two apps fit comfortably side-by-side on the screen. The phone comes with a 5-magnet loudspeaker with NXP Smart Amplifier technology. With a thinner lip at the bottom and only some space left on top for the camera and the earpiece, the display on the Zenfone Max Pro is as immersive as any high-end phones present in the market with a screen-to-body ratio of 83 percent. Due to the camera bump, the phone can't be used easily when its placed on table, whereas the ZenFone Max Pro M1 can be used on a table without any such wobble trouble. Talking about the cameras, there are 13MP and 5MP dual rear cameras with f/2.2 aperture and 80-degree wide-angle lens.

Having spent a few hours with the phone, I am very impressed with Zenfone Max Pro. Up front, there's an 8MP selfie camera with front flash.
