The fans’ longing has ended as ASUS Philippines announced the availability of the ZenFone Max Pro M2 during its official Philippine launch today at Ayala Malls the 30th. It is no secret that the latest smartphone offering of ASUS this year will finally set foot in the Philippines after all the teasers went out late November– making fans yearn for its arrival just in time for the Christmas season!
“We at ASUS are committed to provide products that embody the best of our technological innovations. The ZenFone Max Pro M2 refines the features that ZenFans loved with the flagship ZenFone lines, particularly features that are found on the ZenFone 5 Series, and merged this with the renowned heritage of the ZenFone Max line. The result is a combination of premium look, revolutionary AI cameras, a powerful processor, and a big battery capacity—definitely one of the best products we have offered at this price point to date,” shared Lenny Lin, ASUS Philippines Country Product Manager for Smartphones.
The ZenFone Max Pro M2 harnesses an epic performance of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 that is able to deliver smooth, responsive power. Its massively powerful 5000mAh battery is perfect for non-stop gaming and non-stop entertainment, and now, it uses Corning Gorilla Glass 6 in front – just the second smartphone in the world to have this after the ROG Phone – making it more durable. It also introduces an eye-catching new wave finish.
The ZenFone Max Pro M2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform, incorporating the Qualcomm AI Engine for a smooth, responsive and power-efficient performance. With up to 6GB RAM and 64GB ROM, it is 11% faster than the previous generation, while the graphics performance is improved by a massive 33% for more realistic visuals and faster 3D rendering, making it deliver effortless power for the ultimate mobile gaming and multi-tasking experiences.
A big battery capacity is the signature key-feature of the ZenFone Max series, and despite its sleeker design, the ZenFone Max Pro M2 still contains a long-lasting 5000mAh battery life – making it the world’s lightest 5,000 mAh smartphone – which you can enjoy for up to two-days of non-stop use in a single charge.
The ZenFone Max Pro M2 is the first in its class to use the latest and most premium Corning Gorilla Glass 6, designed to survive 15 consecutive one-meter drops onto rough surfaces. Now, you can worry less about dropping your phone for a number of times.
The intelligent dual-camera system in the ZenFone Max Pro M2 is the most advanced that can ever be seen in the Max Series line-up. It features 13 scenes for its AI Scene Detection – a same feature found in the flagship ZenFone 5 series – which allows users to concentrate on the subject and perfect results every time.
Its dual-camera system uses a Sony IMX486 main sensor, allowing it to take any subject in its stride, and capture more-realistic photos at any time of the day or night. The 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.
The latest All-Screen high-res 6.3-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display on the ZenFone Max Pro M2 is simply stunning, while its 19:9 All-Screen Display allows even more immersive entertainment. It also uses a five-magnet speaker with a metal voice coil, driven by a powerful NXP low-distortion smart amplifier that delivers powerful, detailed and crystal-clear sound. ZenFone Max Pro M2 delights the ears, and takes entertainment to a new level.
Premium design, max convenience
The ZenFone Max Pro M2 is the first to use the eye-catching, new Wave finish—exquisitely created using a glossy 16-layer coating that looks stunning from every angle, showing a changing interplay of light and shade. The 3D-curved rear design is not only comfortable to hold, but also gives ZenFone Max Pro M2 a truly luxurious look, and even with all its new upgrades, the phone is still superbly slim.
“We have started the year by introducing our flagship smartphone – the ZenFone 5 series, as a smartphone that gives end-users a capable device for mobile photography. Since then, we’ve introduced compelling follow-ups of mobile products for different segments that fit right into the end-users’ needs. As with the ROG Phone that we’ve recently launched locally, we bring the ZenFone Max Pro M2 with the premise of a well-rounded performer that improves on the great features that end users love to see in their smartphones,” said ASUS Philippines Systems Group Country Manager George Su.
The ZenFone Max Pro M2 6GB RAM/64 GB ROM will be available nationwide starting December 15, 2018 in all ASUS and ZenFone Stores and Kiosks nationwide, with only the price of PHP 14,995. Its other variant, the ZenFone Max Pro M2 4GB RAM/64GB ROM, which will also be sold on Shopee and Lazada, will hit the market at PHP 12,995, and will be available for pre-order starting December 11.
