Also, based on the leak that we came across last week, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 will bear a model number ASUS_X01BD_1/ZB631KL, and it will come with upgraded hardware and features.
To begin with, the smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, which is a big upgrade over Snapdragon 636 on the current smartphone. Leak has also revealed that the Zenfone Max Pro M2 will be offered in 4GB / 6GB RAM options, and 64GB / 128GB storage options.
The display will be a 6-inch one with full HD+ resolution (1080×2280). With Android Oreo OS, yes leaks and rumors don’t hint at Android Pie yet, the smartphone will come with triple cameras at the back.
Sadly, there is no word on the camera resolution, and we will have to wait until more details leak over the next few weeks. While the Zenfone Max Pro M1 featured a primary sensor and a depth sensor, it is likely that the Zenfone Max Pro M2’s third sensor could come with a wide-angle lens.
