The up to Full HD+ 5.7-inch full-view display in ZenFone Max Plus has an ultrawide 18:9 aspect ratio and ultrathin bezels that give it an 80% screen-to-body ratio. This allowed engineers to craft an amazingly compact and ergonomic body that’s no larger than most standard 5.2-inch smartphones.
The greatly expanded viewing area makes viewing photos and watching widescreen videos incredibly immersive, and when browsing the web there’s less need for scrolling. Multitasking is also easier, as two apps fit comfortably side-by-side on the screen.
The slim and elegant size, premium metal finish and 2.5D-curved front edges of ZenFone Max Plus make it exceptionally comfortable to hold, with significantly less bulk than a standard 5.7-inch phone.
With ZenFone Max Plus, photo lovers can enjoy unrivalled creative possibilities. In addition to the front f/2.0 selfie camera, it features an advanced dual rear-camera system designed to take mobile photography to new heights.
Its 16MP PixelMaster main camera is equipped with a wide, f/2.0 aperture lens to capture clearer photos, and a phase-detection autofocus (PDAF) system that can accurately focus on the subject in just 0.03 seconds even if the subject is moving.
The secondary 120° wide-angle camera has a 200%-wider field of view than standard smartphone cameras, allowing more scenery or people to fit in the frame for dramatic landscape shots, better group photos, and a more convenient photography experience in confined indoor spaces.
The hallmark of the ZenFone Max Series is the huge battery capacity, designed for serious travellers and those who need maximum battery endurance. It has a high-capacity, high-density 4,130mAh battery that not only gives it incredible staying power, but also contributes to its unbelievably compact dimensions.
Moreover, it offers users up to 26 hours on standby, 26 hours of 3G talk time, up to 21 hours of web browsing on Wi-Fi, or up to 13 hours of video playback. Its massive capacity also allows it to be used as a handy power bank to charge other devices.
The battery system in ZenFone Max Plus features ASUS PowerMaster, a suite of intelligent power-management technologies that work in concert to optimize battery life, ensure safety and long-term performance, provide reverse-charging capability, and more. Twelve safety checkpoints — including temperature monitoring and overvoltage protection — combined with automatic maintenance settings keep ZenFone Max Plus’ battery running optimally, providing a 2X-longer average lifespan compared to other smartphone batteries.
ZenFone Max Plus is the first ZenFone to feature Face Unlock, which gives users a quick, secure and convenient alternative to the rear fingerprint sensor for unlocking the phone when wearing gloves or in inclement weather conditions.
“This is the beginning of all beginnings, and our excitement is at an all-time high with the opportunity to start the year anew with a launch as big as this,” ASUS Philippines Country Manager for Systems Group, George Su, shares. “We thank everyone who has supported us in the past years, and now, we invite you all once again for another round of game-changing innovation in the mobile industry with our latest offering, the ZenFone Max Plus!”, adds Mr. Su.
