Some people like their batteries huge and the upcoming Asus ZenFone 4 Max is one smartphone that these people would love. Asus is known for using huge batteries on their handsets and the new ZenFone 4 Max is no different.
The Asus ZenFone 4 Max comes with an enormous 5,000mAh battery. For good measure, the ZenFone 4 Max also comes with the PowerMaster power saving mode. With these two features, ZenFone 4 Max users will definitely have no problems with their gadgets conking out due to lack of juice.
Perhaps the only drawback with the ZenFone's huge battery is the amount of time it takes to charge it completely. At 10W, the in-box charger does not do a good job of charging the battery as fast as one would want it to. In fact, it takes around four long hours to completely charge the ZenFone 4 Max. Fortunately, a 15-minute charge is good enough to give users around three hours of talk time. Additionally, despite the long charging time, the battery does not heat up.
According to GSMArena, the Asus ZenFone 4 Max will be available in a couple of versions. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 version is the higher-end one as it comes with eight cores. The Snapdragon 425 variant will only have four cores. Both ZenFone 4 Max versions will have a RAM of up to 4GB while their internal storage options include 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. Both will also have microSD slots to expand their storage further. While the Asus ZenFone 4 Max falls short of the ZenFone AR when it comes to specs, it does come with impressive enough features that are often not found in a $325 device.
The Asus ZenFone 4 Max was officially launched in Russia, according to Android Authority which pointed at "Helpix" as its source. This event gave credence to what Asus CEO Jerry Shen said before that the company will unleash its new ZenFone devices in July. As such, expect more Asus launches by the end of this month.
