As expected, ASUS has launched their latest smartphone Zenfone Max Pro M1 in India.

On paper, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro packs excellent specifications which are completely in-line with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and in some aspects, the device masters the latter. The Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 is powered by octa-core Snapdragon 636 processor and it comes with 3GB of RAM. This aggressive pricing that betters even the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 paired with the stock Android promise and powerful hardware makes this phone an absolute value-for-money offering, one that could, in the coming days, become a major hit with buyers. The display offers large viewing angles and looks good. The display is placed under a layer of 2.5D arc glass. It comes in Midnight Black and Grey colour options.

Asus has released a number of devices already this year. There's also a rear fingerprint sensor that unlocks the phone in an instant.

Asus, with the Zenfone Max Pro, is taking a different approach towards to the budget segment of the Indian smartphone market. The panel happens to be an IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. With a thinner lip at the bottom and only some space left on top for the camera and the earpiece, the display on the Zenfone Max Pro is as immersive as any high-end phones present in the market with a screen-to-body ratio of 83 percent.

The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, in all honesty, is the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro killer that many of us didn't expect to see this year.
