Asus Announces A New Phone With A Giant Battery: Asus ZenFone Max

Android / Mobile / Tech

Today at the ZenFestival in New Dehli, India, Asus unveiled a new phone with the name “ZenFone Max.” I hope you’re sitting for this part, because if not, then get ready this one. There’s a reason the ZenFone comes with the Max moniker as it comes packed with a 5,000 mAh battery, so there shouldn’t be any reason why you can’t get a few days of usage out of this phone.


The device is considered a mid-range phone, but that’s not stopping it from having some pretty decent specs. Take a look at what’s going to be calling this “Fone” home.

  • ZenUI based off Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • 5.5″ 720p display
  • Gorilla Glass 4
  • A low-end Snapdragon 410 processor (clocking speed was not detailed)
  • 16GB internal storage with expandable storage
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 13 megapixel rear facing camera
  • 5 megapixel front facing camera
  • Dual sim card slot

As mentioned before, I really don’t see how you could run out of battery life with this phone considering you’re getting a lower-end Snapdragon 410 chipset along with 2GB of RAM. If you’re a hardcore gamer on mobile devices, playing games may have some lag due to the processor especially if you’re playing something like “Marvel Future Fight” or “Marvel Contest of Champions.”

The launch date is set for October, but the actual date for when it will be coming over to the states is still up in the air, if it even comes stateside at all. There’s also no price point that’s been said yet, so all we can do is guess. Me personally, I’d say it’s going to be around $240 USD as this ZenFone is only a mid-range player.

Does the idea of a device with a 5,000 mAh battery sound appealing? Do you think that’s overkill? Let us know in the comment section below or on Google+, Facebook and/or Twitter.
