Asus has been teasing its upcoming smartphone Max Pro M2 since some time. The phone is scheduled to launch in India on December 11 and we’ve seen ample amount leaks and rumors already. While we were aware that the phone would be a Flipkart exclusive, like the Max Pro M1(Review), now Flipkart has made a landing page for the Max Pro M2 with teasers sharing details about the features of the phone.
The Flipkart page says that the phone will offer "unmatched performance" and the fact that it uses “fastest Qualcomm Snapdragon [SoC] in the segment.” Though the page does not reveal the exact processor powering the device, however, rumors suggest that the phone may be available in two different variants with one of them being powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC and may house a triple rear camera setup.
Another teaser talks about “Best-in-class Sony Sensor” capable of delivering "impressive bokeh and low-light photography". The page also talks about the battery on the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 and says that the phone will have “largest capacity battery in the lightest form factor with 2+ days battery life” again not specifying the battery pack capacity while hinting towards a 5000-mAh battery capacity, as confirmed earlier.
While these teasers do reveal a bit about the phone, however, keep in mind that these can be tall claims since the company wants to create maximum hype around the launch. The Zenfone Max series is a budget-centric series, hence in all probability, the Sony sensor may be a primary sensor only. Same is the case with the claim of 2+ day-long battery life. Though the phone may house a 5,000 mAh battery pack, 2+ day-long battery life looks like a tall claim.
Asus has already confirmed that the Max Pro M2 will feature a Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection while there are rumors that the phone may have 8GB of RAM as well. The Zenfone Max Pro M2 is slated to launch in India and Indonesia, simultaneously, exactly a week later, on December 11. Let us wait for a week more to see how Asus prices the upcoming phones.
