The smartphone will be available in Flipkart India exclusively. It's better to say the company did not take any risks while designing the device, which is a good thing. Let's have a look at what makes this phone special.

In the quest to regain its former glory, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 has the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro in front of it and while Asus has played its trump card to become the flawless challenger for Xiaomi, let's see whether we have viable competition for Xiaomi or the Redmi Note 5 Pro will still be an unmatched smartphone? However, it is much lighter than ZenUI which should bode well with the powerful Snapdragon 636 chipset. It has a 5,000mAh strong battery too. The handset in question isn't exactly the most powerful phone we've seen, but what ASUS has done is that they've built it based on a survey they've conducted with about 2,000 participants, presumably building a phone based on what users actually want. It comes with triple card slot for adding two nano SIM cards along with a MicroSD card. ZenFone Max Pro ships with pure Android 8.1 Oreo OS. This phone comes with good specs along with a large battery.

Both smartphones come with features like a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Facial recognition, and dual-cameras at the rear panel.
