Asus ZenFone Max Plus M1 goes on sale in the US for $229
As expected, Asus introduced its mid-range ZenFone Max Plus M1 smartphone in the United States and judging by the retail price announced, this one should be a best-seller to say the least.

The ZenFone Max Plus M1 is now available for purchase for just $229 via Asus Store, Amazon, B&H, Best Buy, Newegg and other major retailers in the country.

For that amount, customers will get a smartphone equipped with a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750T processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage. The large 5.7-inch display features FHD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

The only downside could be the fact that it ships with an older version of Android (Nougat), so we can only hope Asus will provide those who buy it with an Android Oreo update at some point.

Other highlights of the phone include a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, a secondary 8-megapixel selfie camera, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a generous 4,130 mAh battery.

Although Asus launched the ZenFone Max Plus M1 in three color options, the US version is only available in either Azure Silver or Deepsea Black.
