We’ve been waiting for this: ASUS Philippines has finally revealed the price of the ZenFone Max Plus (M1).
The smartphone will retail at P11,995 or roughly $240 in the country. And if you’re one of the first 200 buyers at the ASUS ZenFone Max Plus (M1)’s launch at SM MOA Atrium on January 14, you will get to take home P7,595 ($152) worth of these exclusive freebies:
- JBL T450BT headphones
- ASUS sports jacket
- ASUS OTG dongle
- ASUS clear case
- ASUS Zenny doll
If you care about the screen of your next device, then this 5.7-incher may be your match. The ASUS ZenFone Max Plus (M1) has an on-trend nearly borderless display, the Taiwanese manufacturer’s second 18:9 phone after the ZenFone Pegasus 4S. But unlike the Pegasus, this one is not China-bound. Its screen resolution is also better at 1080p.
However, if you care more about what’s underneath the hood more than a smartphone’s surface, the ZenFone Max Plus (M1) may leave you feeling a bit disappointed. First, its 4,130mAh battery is smaller than those of other Max releases. Second, its MediaTek 6750T processor is dated and is known to have heating problems.
