ASUS Philippines has officially launched the Zenfone Max Pro M1 in the country aimed for heavy mobile gamers.

It boasts a powerful 1.8GHz octa core processor paired with a massive 5000mAh battery. The company even claims the tagline, “Limitless Gaming”!


Focus on Performance

Aside from its Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 also has another trick to provide a smooth performance – it’s running on a stock version of Android.

This means there’s no ZenUI skin to hog the phone’s resources and software updates should be swift.

Perhaps the only limiting aspect of the device is its 3GB RAM. Nevertheless, it’s already plenty for most Android games including those under the Battle Royale category.

Battery King!

The company’s Max series of smartphones features massive batteries. The 5000mAh battery of the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 is said to last up to two days on a single charge with mixed usage or 12 hours of continuous gaming.

Still, charging the phone from 0-100% requires just around 1 hours and 42 minutes using the bundled charger with 10W power output.

These figures are according to ASUS’ own tests.
