Asus unveils its first ZenFone series smartphone to pack an 18:9 display, the ZenFone Max Plus (M1)
Asus is one of the many companies that recently jumped into the 18:9 screen technology bandwagon. After introducing its first ever smartphone to feature such a display, the Pegasus 4S, Asus unveiled today its first ZenFone series handset with an 18:9 display, the Max Plus (M1). Although we have yet to learn when it will be available for purchase and how much it will cost, we already know quite a lot about its specs.
First off, Asus ZenFone Max Plus (M1) is a purely mid-range smartphone that runs Android 7.0 Nougat with ZenUI 4.0 on top. Also, it comes in two variations: 2GB RAM/16GB storage and 3GB RAM/32GB storage.
On the inside, the new ZenFone series smartphone packs an octa-core MediaTek 6750T processor and the amount of memory mentioned earlier. It sports a large 5.7-inch display with full HD+ (1080 x 2160 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.
Another major feature of the phone is the dual-camera setup on the back side, which consists of 16MP and 8MP cameras. There's also an 8-megapixel selfie camera in the front and massive 4,130 mAh battery under the hood.
