After launching its first bezel-less smartphone with an 18:9 aspect ratio display - the Pegasus 4S - in China earlier this month, Asus has now unveiled its second near bezel-less 18:9 display-sporting smartphone called the ZenFone Max Plus (M1).
The Zenfone Max Plus (M1) also features 'face unlocking, ' a feature that is seen in several recent launches like the Vivo V7, OnePlus 5T and the Oppo F5. The smartphone has been listed on its official site in Russian Federation, meaning the launch is nearby. The screen is shielded by 2.5D curved glass. In terms of storage, one variant comes with 16GB memory and the other with 32GB storage. The fingerprint sensor has been mounted on the rear panel as well for more screen real estate on the front. The phone has 1.5 GHz Octa-Core MediaTek MT6750T 64-bit processor with Mali-T860 GPU. Further, there is a microSD card slot to expand the storage up to 256GB.
The front gets an 8MP selfie shooter with a f/2.0 aperture and 85-degree wide angle lens that helps take group selfies.
As for the optics, the smartphone will feature a dual-camera setup at the back. The Zenfone Max Plus (M1) is backed by a 4,130mAh battery, and Asus claims it can deliver up to 26 hours of talktime on 3G.
The front camera holds an 8 Megapixel unit with f/2.0 aperture. Connectivity options on the device include dual-SIM, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System. Meanwhile, the battery life should be pretty solid thanks to its 4,130 mAh capacity, but Android 8.0 Oreo fans might be disappointed to learn that the device ships with Android 7.0 Nougat (with ASUS' ZenUI 4.0 skin on top). Asus is expected to reveal the official price and availability details of Asus Zenfone Max Plus (M1) shortly before it goes on sale over there.
