Last week, Flipkart and Asus announced a strategic tie-up under which Flipkart will be exclusively selling the Asus Zenfones in India for the next three years. Under this partnership, Asus has launched the first device, The Asus Zenfone Max Pro. Today, at an event in Delhi which was broadcasted live as well, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro was launched.
The main USP of the Asus Zenfone Pro Max is the massive 5,000mAh battery. Just like previous generation Zenfone Max Phones, it will have a massive battery backup along with support for reverse charging so that the phone can be used as a power bank and using it, other devices can be charged as well.
Another interesting point of the device is that this time Asus has decided to go with Pure Android and the phone runs Android Oreo out of the box, without any skins of customizations.
