Ahead of the launch on January 14, ASUS has revealed the price of the ZenFone Max Plus (M1), which the company pegs at P11,995. If you head over to SM Mall of Asia Atrium on Sunday, you can take home freebies worth P7,595. These freebies include JBL T450BT headphones, ASUS sports jacket, ASUS OTG dongle, ASUS clear case, and an ASUS Zenny doll.
For those who want to get it then, you’ll need to register here, (they’re only taking in 50 walk-ins, the 150 need to pre-register). ASUS also released the full terms and conditions for getting the phone then so you might want to read through this.
As a refresher, the ZenFone Max Plus (M1) is part of the company’s line of smartphones that carry high-capacity batteries. Strangely enough, though the Max Plus has a smaller battery capacity than the previously launched Max. This has a 4,130mAh battery over the 5,000mAh battery on the Max. The former offers 26 days standby, while the latter can hold charge for 38 days.
The ZenFone Max Plus (M1) comes with a 5.7-inch ultra-wide 18:9 display, a dual-rear camera setup with 16-megapixel main shooter combined with an 8-meapixel wide-angle camera as well as an 16-megapixel/8-megapixel front shooter with f/2.0 aperture. It’s also the first ASUS device to get Face Unlock technology. This smartphone comes with a 32GB internal storage with expansion up to 256GB via a dedicated microSD slot. This dual SIM device runs on a MediaTek 6750T 64-bit octa-core processor with 3GB/4GB of RAM.
