Asus has just announced that the upgraded version of the Zenfone Max Pro M1 with 6GB of RAM and 16MP primary rear camera will be available for purchase on July 26. The 6GB RAM version of the Zenfone Max Pro M1 will retail for Rs 14,999, and it comes with 64GB of internal storage. Apart from more RAM, the premium variant also features upgraded rear camera in the form of a primary 16MP shooter which works in tandem with a 5MP secondary depth sensor. Also, Asus will be adding a 16MP selfie camera to this new variant, up from the 8MP camera we saw on the other two variants. As seen with the other two variants, the 6GB RAM version will also be available exclusively on Flipkart and most likely, Asus will sell it in flash sales only.
It’s unknown whether Asus is planning to sell the device in two colours or a single colour. Flipkart has listed the device in Grey colour option, so it’s confirmed the upcoming variant will be available in Grey colour option. The design of the handset, software and battery capacity will remain the same.
