About a couple of months ago, Asus announced a strategic partnership with one of India's leading eCommerce players Flipkart to launch the Zenfone Max Pro M1 smartphone. It is the first-ever stock Android phone from the company and was unveiled in 3GB, 4GB, and 6GB RAM variants. While the first two variants went on sale right away, 6GB RAM variant was said to be coming soon. Now, it seems like the wait for the same is finally close to getting over as Flipkart listing for the same has been spotted online.
This particular Zenfone Max Pro M1 listing is currently incomplete and only lists 64GB storage as the technical specification. But when you will dig into the source code of the page, you will find references to 6GB RAM capacity. This makes it clear that the listing is indeed meant for the 6GB RAM variant and is currently under works.
Other than the higher RAM capacity, Asus promised improved rear and front cameras with the variant. On paper, this variant will be featuring 16-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual rear camera setup and a single 16-megapixel front camera. This definitely appears to be better sensor than other variants but we will have to wait until the official availability to see the difference.
As for other specifications, they will remain the same. This includes a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. There is 5000mAh battery and it runs stock Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. It should become official sooner than later and once it does, it will cost Rs. 14,999.
