ASUS launches ZenFone 3 Max in India with two variants


At a launch event in New Delhi, ASUS announced the launch of the ZenFone 3 Max in India. ZenFone 3 Max comes in two size variants – one with a 5.2-inch display and another with a 5.5-inch display. The Max completes the ZenFone 3 line-up in India. ASUS had previously launched its other ZenFone 3 smartphones in the country back in August.

The handset’s big selling point is its large 4,100mAh battery, which ASUS says can offer 38 days of 4G standby time and 17 hours of 3G talk time, and can double up as a powerbank to charge other gadgets (The product comes bundled with an OTG cable for reverse charging and file transfer). Obviously, you’re going to get a lot less than that if you’re even a moderate user though. Both devices sport a fingerprint sensor positioned near the top of the rear panel, allowing the user’s index finger to rest naturally upon it.

“We understand the needs of the mobile consumers who are constantly on the move and require access to everything at the tip of their fingers. Through Zenfone 3 Max, we have been able to combine high-end aesthetics, a great photography experience, as well as a battery that ensures that users can enjoy their smartphone experience for longer durations without having to look for a plug point.”

– Peter Chang, Region Head – South Asia Country Manager for ASUS India
