Asus ZenFone Max Plus (M1) with 18:9 display goes on sale in Europe, but it's a bit overpriced

Asus introduced its first ZenFone series smartphone to pack an 18:9 display, the ZenFone Max Plus (M1), last month, but it only made it available for purchase in Russia. Well, it looks like starting this month, the smartphone will be released in more European countries.

The bad news is the ZenFone Max Plus (M1) is a bit overpriced for what it has to offer. Apparently, the smartphone will cost €300 in most European countries even though it comes with a MediaTek chipset inside.

Besides the large 5.7-inch full HD+ (1080 x 2160 pixels) display, the ZenFone Max Plus (M1) packs a massive 4,130 mAh battery. The octa-core MediaTek 6750T processor is paired with either 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, or 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

The back side features a dual-camera setup (16MP+8MP), while in the front there's a secondary 8-megapixel selfie camera. The ZenFone Max Plus (M1) will be available in three color options: Deepsea Black, Azure Silver, and Sunlight Gold.

I think the price is fine, the regular Asus Zenfone 4 Max is $200, but the honor 7x is the best bang for buck
