The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 and the Max M2 are the successors to the currently available Max Pro M1 and Max M1. These devices have been leaked all over the internet and are only a few days away from launch. We know pretty much all there is to know about the specifications of these phones. However, the devices have now appeared on the official Asus website in Russia confirming all the details. The website also reveals the pricing of these new Asus smartphones.
ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 and Zenfone Max M2 Pricing
Asus will be launching these phones, or at least one of them in India on December 11, 2018. This has been confirmed by the teasers and the dedicated page on Flipkart. A video has also been posted showing off the display on the Max Pro M2, which is protected by the latest Gorilla Glass 6. This is the first time that a mid-range smartphone will use this Glass on the display, which is usually used on high-end phones such as the OnePlus 6T.
The predecessors, Max Pro M1 and the Max M1, were one of the best-sellers in the segment. The more powerful Zenfone Max Pro M1 is an amazing value for money device. Now, the upcoming successors also seem to follow the same path. On the Russian Asus website, the Zenfone Max M2 is priced at 12,990 Ruble, which is about INR 13,900. The Max Pro M2 gets a price tag of 17,990 Ruble, which is equal to INR 19,900. Looking at these prices, the phones are definitely more expensive than the previous versions, but they bring new features and upgraded designs. We expect the pricing in India to be similar to this.

Now that the pricing is out of the way, let us look at the confirmed features of these two smartphones. The Zenfone Max Pro M2 is the big brother here and includes better hardware.

The Max Pro M2 has a dual-rear camera setup with a primary 12MP sensor that is paired with a 5MP depth unit. For selfies, there’s a 13MP sensor placed inside the notch. A major selling point of this phone will be the large 5000mAh battery. Even the Max Pro M1 came with the same battery capacity. Apart from that, the phone will have a triple-SIM slot with microSD slot and a headphone jack. It is said to ship with Android 8.1 Oreo on board with ZenUI on top.
The Max M2 will also have a 6.3-inch display, but with an HD+ resolution and a bigger notch. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 632 processor and have 3GB RAM with 32GB storage.
