The octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC with Adreno 509 GPU makes it a value for money proposition. However, a 2GB RAM variant is also available which, instead of Android Go, ships with the company's own ZenUI custom skin. Even if bezels are narrow, but they are not as thin to say it bezel less.

Under the current sale, users can purchase the phone's 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage option at Rs 10,999, while getting the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant at Rs 12,999.

The Zenfone Max Pro comes with Android Oreo 8.1 and dual SIM (Nano). But when it launches, it will carry a price tag of Rs. 14,999. However, the Zenfone Max Pro will charge via a micro USB port which means it could take a while to fully charge from 0%. Asus's newest entrant into the budget smartphone space competes with Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Vivo V9 Youth and Honor 9 Lite.
