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.

The ZenFone Max Plus (M1) ditches the home button, so the fingerprint sensor has now been placed on the back side. The phone was recently introduced in Russia and will probably not be available worldwide, but some countries will definitely get it soon.
