All-New ASUS ZenFone Max (M2) Features 4,000 mAh Battery and Amazing Performance in a Slim and Compact Design

A value-packed, high-performance smartphone fully upgraded with 6.3″ All-Screen display, and high-capacity 4,000 mAh battery

PASIG CITY, Philippines, January 18, 2019 — Not long after the successful launch of
the ZenFone Max Pro (M2) last December, ASUS Philippines once again listened to
their fans and announce
d the arrival of its younger,
more affordable sibling, the ZenFone Max (M2). The latest addition to ASUS’
Battery Kings is a value-packed successor to the M1 model, offering faster
performance, bigger display, and improved audio systems.

The all-new ZenFone Max
(M2) is designed to go further than ever. Its 6.3-inch All-Screen display is bigger, its Qualcomm® Snapdragon 632 Mobile Platform is
faster in comparison to its ZenFone Max (M1) predecessor, and its signature
high-capacity 4,000 mAh battery
frees users to enjoy life to the max.

ZenFone Max (M2) also has
an all-new slim and compact design, with
a premium metal body finish. It also includes a convenient triple-slot tray that combines dual
SIM slots with a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 2TB

something that only the ZenFone Max (M2), and no other smartphone in its price
range, can offer. This is especially useful for users who have work and
personal lines, or those who travel frequently and need the second SIM for a
data connection but still want the convenience of a microSD card slot for more
photos, movies, and music on the go.

Max Performance

At the heart of ZenFone
Max (M2) is the latest 14nm Qualcomm®
Snapdragon 632
Mobile Platform – a first for any ZenFone – for
a smooth and a fluid performance. This is also coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of ROM. This powerhouse
processor delivers up to 40% higher CPU
performance and 10% higher graphics performance than the previous SD 626 Mobile
. It is also incredibly power efficient, enabling a hassle-free and
responsive experience without much impact on battery life.

Max Battery

Battery performance is
a key part of the DNA of the ZenFone Max series. The new ZenFone Max (M2) uses
a high-capacity, custom-crafted 4,000 mAh
lithium-polymer battery that delivers
up to 33 days of 4G standby, up to 21 hours of video playback, up to 22 hours of Wi-Fi web browsing, 8 hours of gaming, and up to 35 hours of 3G talk time. With this
much power at their disposal, users can browse more, talk more, or stream their
favorite videos all day without having to worry about looking for a power

ASUS’ ultra-dense battery technology also allows
the ZenFone Max (M2) to have a slim
7.7mm profile,
a noticeable improvement over the previous 8.7mm-thin M1
model. Even though it is instantly recognizable with the same iconic metal
design and large battery size as the older Battery Kings, ZenFone Max (M2) is
remarkably more compact and comfortable to hold.

Max Display

The new ZenFone Max (M2) features a large 6.3-inch All-Screen 19:9 HD+ (1520 x 720) display.
Its 88% screen-to-body ratio lets
users see more at once, taking the viewing experience to the next level. Whether
streaming videos, playing their favorite mobile games, or browsing the web,
users will find themselves fully immersed in this new visual enjoyment.

Max Audio

For a superb audio
experience, ZenFone Max (M2) now uses a five-magnet
speaker with a metal voice coil
— a major upgrade over the single-magnet
speaker of the previous generation — that’s driven by a powerful NXP low-distortion smart amplifier for crystal-clear sound
that’s more powerful and more detailed than ever before.
