And if you’re wondering how much you’ll have to spend for the watered-down version of the ZenFone Max Pro M2 here, you might be pleased to know that ASUS has priced the ZenFone Max M2 at P8,995 or the equivalent of $171.

Do note, though, that this is for the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage model of the phone, and we have no idea yet if the Taiwanese manufacturer has local plans for the higher-end ZenFone Max M2 with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Also inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor and a 4,000mAh battery that is claimed to deliver two days of use per charge.
