ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 Now on Open Sale Via Flipkart; Oppo A3s 3GB Variant Gets Price Drop


The ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 was put up for its first sale in India earlier this month. At the time, however, ASUS was only conducting a flash sale scheme for its new smartphone, a tactic that repeated itself maybe only once since then. Now, the Taiwanese phone maker is finally making its latest budget smartphone offering available on open sale. On the other hand, Oppo’s A3s 3GB RAM variant has received another price cut. Read ahead to know more about both these deals.

Grab the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 Anytime On Flipkart

The Zenfone Max Pro M2 is effectively available for purchase via Flipkart on open sale, which means you won’t have to compete with others in a flash sale for the chance of grabbing one. Perhaps, the reception from consumers was not as good as anticipated, and the company decided to just bite the bullet and begin selling it via the more traditional scheme. Regardless, if you are interested in getting a Max Pro M2 for yourself, here are the pricing and offer details.

First off, let’s take a look at the storage variants and their pricing. There are three storage variants in total that ASUS released for the Zenfone Max Pro M2 – 3GB RAM+32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage and 6GB RAM+62GB storage. At the time of writing, only the first two storage variants have been listed. They are priced at INR 12,999 and INR 14,999 respectively, and the listings are live on Flipkart right now.

As for the offers, there doesn’t seem to be any additional perks available right now other than the standard purchase-related options. These include cash on delivery (COD), net banking & ATM card payment options, along with no cost EMI plans. On the other hand, Flipkart is offering its customary mobile protection plan as it provides with all other phones. This plan costs an additional INR 399 and will cover issues including broken screen repair, liquid damage, hardware/software problems and even theft for up to a year.

Asus Zenfone Max M2 Pro

The Zenfone Max Pro M2 is a compelling offering for those looking for an affordable but capable package. This phone comes with a 6.26-inch IPS LCD which boasts an FHD+ resolution with an impressively high screen-to-body ratio. It has achieved this by providing a reasonably small sized notch at the top of this screen. In this notch, you will find a 13MP selfie camera alongside the earpiece and sensors. The back of the phone houses a 12MP + 5MP primary imaging setup.

The highlighting aspect of this phone, however, is with its powerful processor and large battery. For such a low asking price, ASUS is giving you a Snapdragon 660 SoC along with a massive 5000mAh cell. Furthermore, you get to enjoy stock Android 8.1 Oreo on this phone.

Oppo A3s 3GB Variant Price Slashed by INR 1,000

If the Zenfone Max Pro M2 is still out of your budget, then you will be glad to know that there is another alternative. Oppo has yet again brought down the price of its budget device Oppo A3s. According to smartphone retailer Mahesh Telecom, the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage model of the Oppo A3s will now retail for just INR 10,990. This is a further INR 1,000 price cut since Oppo brought down the price of this phone to INR 11,990 just last month. The price cut seems to not only have taken place via offline sellers but was also reflecting at e-retail sites including Amazon when this article was written. So if you are in the market for a highly affordable smartphone that can get the job done, the Oppo A3s certainly deserves some consideration.
