Just a few days back, alleged specifications of the rumored ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 had been leaked on the web. A possible render of the ZenFone Max Pro M2 has now been leaked online courtesy of the Google Play Console device catalog. In addition to the render of the device, the Play Console listing also includes a few key specifications of the smartphone. While the previous leak had suggested the smartphone will come with 4GB of RAM, the latest Play Console listing suggests the smartphone will be available with up to 6GB of RAM.
ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 Render Reveals a Notched Display
The ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 render listed in the Google Play Console device catalog reveals a revamped design with a notch at the top. As you can see in the image below, the notch on the ZenFone Max Pro M2 is not as wide as the notch on the Redmi Note 6 Pro from Xiaomi. If the render does indeed show the ZenFone Max Pro M1 successor, we can now be sure that the smartphone will come with a taller 19:9 aspect ratio.
The Google Play Console listing tells us that the ZenFone Max Pro M2 packs 6GB of RAM. As mentioned above, the previously leaked spec sheet had claimed the smartphone will come with 4GB of RAM. There is a possibility that ASUS will be offering the ZenFone Max Pro M2 with up to 6GB of RAM in some markets such as India, while in other markets it could be available with only 4GB of RAM. On the software front, the Play Console listing claims the smartphone will be running Android 8.1 Oreo and not the latest Android 9.0 Pie.
ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 Rumored Specifications
The ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 is tipped to feature a 6-inch IPS LCD display with 1080 x 2280 Full HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. While the display size remains largely unchanged, the notch at the top should allow the smartphone to have a higher screen-to-body ratio than the ZenFone Max Pro M1 (review). On the performance front, ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 is expected to be even more impressive than its predecessor. While the current model is powered by a 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor, the ZenFone Max Pro M2 will be running on an even more powerful Snapdragon 660 AIE octa-core processor with an Adreno 512 GPU. In the memory department, the upcoming budget Android smartphone is expected to be available with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. For further expansion, it will likely have a dedicated microSD card slot.
In the camera department, ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 is rumored to sport a triple-camera setup at the rear with a 13MP primary sensor. The rest of the smartphone’s hardware specifications remain a mystery for now. However, we do expect to find out a lot more about the ZenFone Max Pro M2 very soon. ASUS Indonesia recently confirmed that it is holding a media event on December 11 to unveil the ZenFone Max Pro M2 “gaming” smartphone. Since the ZenFone Max Pro M1 proved to be quite successful in India, we expect ASUS to launch the ZenFone Max Pro M2 in the country soon after its debut in Indonesia. Its main rival in India will be the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, which will be going on sale in India for the first time on November 23.
