Asus Zenfone Max announced with insane 5,000mAh battery

Asus has today announced three new phones at the Zen Festival in Delhi, India. One of them, named the Asus Zenfone Max, will come equipped with a massive 5,000mAh battery.

The Zenfone Max will be an entry-level device aimed at power efficiency and long usage cycles. The internal specifications are fairly uninspiring, with a Snapdragon 410 and 2GB RAM. 16GB internal storage will be offered as standard, which is a nice touch for a budget device. There’s also further expandability offered thanks to the MicroSD slot. It carries a 5.5 inch IPS display with a lowly resolution of 720p, which equates to about 267ppi. While none of this is going to excite, the modest specs should help to make that enormous battery last even longer. Who knows, it may even be able to hit the elusive three day mark.

The rear camera sounds more impressive, offering a 13 megapixel sensor and dual-tone flash with laser assisted focus. This should allow photographers to get more accurate colour reproduction when using the flash, as well as faster autofocus. The front camera is just as well equipped, with a 5 megapixel sensor and huge 85-degree wide-angle lens. Group selfies should be a breeze.

The device is scheduled to launch in October and will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop with the obligatory Zen UI 2.0 overlay.
