Asus, the Taiwanese smartphone brand recently slashed the price of the Asus Zenfone 3 Max smartphone in India. And today, the brand has slashed the price of the first Zenfone Max variant, the Asus Zenfone Max (ZC550KL) in India. To recall, the Asus Zenfone Max (ZC550KL) was launched more than a year ago.
Before the price cut, the Asus Zenfone Max (ZC550KL) was retailing for Rs. 8,999, but from now, the device will be available at Rs. 7,999. That said, for just Rs. 7,999, you get a massive 5000mAh battery with the smartphone.
Asus says that the revised price will reflect across all major e-commerce sites like Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal and leading retail stores including Asus Exclusive Stores across India. The Zenfone Max packs in decent specifications for the asking price. Also, with the Zenfone Max, you can charge other smartphones as well, thanks to the massive battery.
Let's recall the specifications of the Asus Zenfone Max (ZC550KL), it flaunts a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and also has Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection on top.

Asus has added a 13MP rear camera in the smartphone which can focus the subject in just 0.03 seconds. The device has a plastic body, which is a letdown. The smartphones come with a 5MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture, 85-degree wide lens. The device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
