Asus Zenfone 3 Max specifications

Once again, Asus continues with its naming confusion. The Zenfone 3 Max comes in two variants, both of which are called Zenfone 3 Max and come with a confusing model number to distinguish between the two. The Zenfone 3 Max ZC553KL variant sports a 5.5-inch full HD display covered with 2.5D curved glass on top. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor paired with Adreno 505 GPU and 3GB of RAM. With 32GB of onboard storage, it comes with a microSD card slot for up to 128GB of additional storage.

In the photography department, the Zenfone 3 Max sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, and laser auto-focus. For selfie enthusiasts, it has an 8-megapixel front camera with beautification mode. Both the cameras are capable of shooting videos in full HD resolution. The smartphone has a 4,100mAh battery, which is rated to deliver 20 hours of talktime and can survive up to 30 days on standby mode. It comes with reverse charging support.

The Zenfone 3 Max ZC520TL variant, on the other hand, flaunts a smaller 5.2-inch full HD (1080p) display with 2.5D curved glass on top. It is powered by MediaTek’s quad-core processor clocked at 1.25GHz and paired with 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM. It comes with 32GB of onboard storage along with a microSD card slot for further expansion. In the camera department, you get a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper. Rest of the specifications of the smartphone are same as the larger variant.

In terms of connectivity, both Zenfone 3 Max variants support dual-SIM, 4G LTE + VoLTE HD voice calling support, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS and AGPS. The smartphones also feature a rear fingerprint scanner. On the software front, they runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with ZenUI 3.0 on top.

At this price point, the Asus Zenfone 3 will compete with the likes of InFocus Epic 1, LeEco Le 2, and Moto G4 Plus. The InFocus Epic 1 features a 5.5-inch full HD display. It is powered by MediaTek’s deca-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, expandable up to 128GB using a microSD card. With 16-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera, the smartphone is armed with a 3,000mAh battery with quick charge support. It is also equipped with the new USB Type-C port for data exchange and charging. It further includes a rear fingerprint scanner, dual SIM card slots and 4G LTE with VoLTE support.

The LeEco Le 2 is priced at Rs 11,999 and features a 5.5-inch full HD display. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. With 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel camera up front, there is a 3,000mAh battery to keep things ticking. Running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based custom OS, the smartphone offers dual-SIM support with 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a rear fingerprint sensor. LeEco has done away with the 3.5mm headphone jack, and is using the USB Type-C connector instead.

The Moto G4 Plus, on the other hand, features a 5.5-inch full HD display, and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage. It features 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Armed with a 3,000mAh battery, it comes with TurboPower support for fast charging. Other features include a fingerprint sensor, water repellent nano coating and connectivity options such as dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and is due to get Android 7.0 Nougat update in the coming months.
