Asus Launches Zenfone 3S Max with 5000mAh Battery & 8MP Selfie Camera at Rs. 14,999



The Asus Zenfone 3s Max, the upgraded variant of the Zenfone 3 Max is now officially launched here in India. Unlike the Zenfone 3 Max, this new device comes only in one variant and is priced at Rs. 14,999. The device will be sold through both offline and online retail stores across India starting today. It comes with an all-metal unibody design and will be available in Black and Sand Gold color options. At this price, the device sports an HD (1280 x 720 pixels) display while the Chinese brands are offering Full HD resolution displays at Rs. 10,000. The Zenfone 3S Max includes 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded technically up to 2TB. The USP of the device is the 5,000mAh battery that is mentioned to give 28 hours of talk time and lasts up to 34 days in standby. This is also the first Asus smartphone to run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The device also packs a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera.

Earlier: Asus launched the Zenfone 3 Max smartphone in India in November last year. The device was launched in two variants with 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes priced at Rs. 12,999 and Rs. 17,999 respectively. Just after three months of its debut in the Indian market, the company will be launching a new upgraded variant called Zenfone 3S Max (ZC521TL) on February 7th. This new device comes only in one variant with a 5.2-inch display and will be available in Gold color option. Talking about the design, the device looks completely different from the Zenfone 3 Max, the new Zenfone 3S Max comes with a physical home button and lacks the rear-facing loudspeaker. Even the rear camera is moved from top center to the top left of the device.

It is expected to be priced around Rs. 10,000 and most of the smartphones from Chinese manufacturers at this price come with a Full HD (1280 x 1080 pixels) display, but the 5.2-inch display on the Zenfone 3S Max is only limited to HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6750V/C octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and comes coupled with Mali T860 MP2 GPU and 3GB of RAM. There is also 32GB of internal storage that can be further expanded upto 128GB via provided hybrid SIM slot.

It features a 13MP rear camera with dual tone LED flash and an 8MP selfie camera on the front. The most notable upgraded on the Zenfone 3S Max compared to Zenfone 3 Max, is the bump in battery capacity from 4,100mAh to a whopping 5,000mAh. According to the company, the device lasts up to 34 days in standby mode. The Nubia N1 is another smartphone to offer such a large battery, but it is priced slightly on the higher side. It supports dual SIM dual standby and offers VoLTE for using with the Jio 4G SIM. The physical home button on the front also comes embedded with a fingerprint sensor.

The Zenfone 3S Max runs on the in-house ZenUI and is also the first Asus smartphone to come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5mm Audio port, and MicroUSB 2.0 port. The device measures 149.5 x 73.7 x 8.85 mm and weighs 169.5 grams. On the right edge of the device, we can find the volume rocker and the power button. The loudspeaker on the Zenfone 3S Max is placed on the bottom edge. The complete details including the pricing and availability will be known on its launch day, i.e.; February 7th.
