by: - Last updated on: December 6th, 2018

Asus has today announced the successor to its highly acclaimed and awfully named Zenfone Max M series in Russia. The new Zenfone Max M2 and Zenfone Max Pro M2 inherit enormous batteries from their predecessors and add features like notch-equipped screens.

The most apparent difference between the Zenfone Max M2 and Zenfone Max Pro M2 is the presence of a glass exterior on the latter. The former, on the other hand, has the same conservative aluminum design found on the Zenfone Max M1. Both have 6.3-inch LCD screens but the Zenfone Max Pro M2 offers a 1080p panel (that’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6), while the Zenfone Max M2 is stuck with a 720p one. In addition, the Pro has a larger 5000mAh battery as compared to the non-Pro’s 4000mAh pack. Both, unfortunately, lack quick charging and feature a MicroUSB port. Like before, both the phones come preloaded with a stock build of Android 8.1.

The Zenfone Max Pro M2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of onboard storage which can be expanded with a MicroSD card. The Zenfone Max M2, on the contrary, runs on the Snapdragon 632 chipset, 3/4GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of internal, expandable storage.

As for the cameras, both have a total of three sensors. On the rear, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 carries a primary 12-megapixel camera paired with a secondary 5-megapixel snapper for depth-sensing, while the Zenfone Max M2 has the same main camera and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. For selfies, you will find a 13-megapixel shooter on the Zenfone Max Pro M2 and an 8-megapixel one on the Zenfone Max M2. The rest of the specifications are common among the two including a rear-mounted fingerprint rear, Dual 4G VoLTE, dedicated MicroSD card slot, and more.

The Zenfone Max Pro M2 starts at 17990 Rubles ($269 /Rs. 19,000), while the Zenfone Max M2 costs 12990 Rubles ($194 /Rs. 14,000). Both are expected to be launched in India later this month on the 11th.
