The ASUS ZenFone 4 Max (ZC520KL) Price, Specs & Offer Revealed!

ASUS just announced the availability of the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max (ZC520KL) smartphone! This is the 5.2″ version of the ZenFone 4 Max Pro (ZC554KL) launched by Korean superstar Gong Yoo at the We Love Photo event. Best of all – it will only cost RM 799 / ~US$ 189! Unbelievable, if you consider what ASUS is providing in the ZenFone 4 Max. Even more unbelievable – the special limited launch offer they also announced!

 

Long Battery Life

Ever since ASUS launched their ZenFone 3 series, they have been known for long battery life. The eponymous ASUS ZenFone 3 and the larger ZenFone 3 Ultra, for example, lasted almost 12 hours of non-stop operation while the excellent ZenFone 3 Zoom lasted more than 17 hours!

The new ASUS ZenFone 4 Max builds upon this heritage with a high-capacity 4,100 mAh battery, coupled with an advanced power management system. ASUS says the ZenFone 4 Max will last 37 days on standby, and offers 2 hours of talk time with just 15 minutes of charging!

They’re so confident about its battery life that the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max is capable of reverse-charging, essentially functioning as a power bank for your other devices!

 

Dual Lens Camera

Even though it’s priced at just RM 799 / ~US$ 189, the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max comes with a dual-lens camera, and an 8 MP selfie camera!

The dual-lens camera consists of a 13 MP main camera with a standard 80 degree field of view, and a wide-angle 5 MP camera with a 120 degree field of view. The different viewing angles allow for greater creativity when you frame your shots.

The Wiko View & View Prime Smartphones Revealed!

After Samsung kicked off the bezel-less craze with their stunning Galaxy S8 smartphone, every smartphone brand is racing to the market with their own bezel-less smartphone. Joining the bezel-less party in the last quarter of 2017 is the French brand, Wiko. We introduce to you – the Wiko View and Wiko View Prime bezel-less smartphones!

 

The Wiko View & View Prime Smartphones Revealed!

The new Wiko View and Wiko View Prime smartphones boast a bezel-less display with a “18:9 widescreen format“. Never mind the mathematical faux pas (18:9 is 2:1 after all), what this means is it has a real wide display with an odd and relatively low resolution of 1440 x 720.

Wiko also joined the selfie bandwagon with the likes of the ASUS ZenFone Selfie Pro, and the OPPO F1s. The View Prime boasts a dual-lens selfie camera, while the regular View has a high-resolution 16MP selfie camera.

Both smartphones have quite a nice set of hardware inside though. They are both powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 (quad-core) and 430 (octa-core) SoCs respectively. The View has 3 GB of LPDDR3 memory and 32 GB of internal flash storage. The View Prime, on the other hand, has 4 GB of LPDDR3 memory and 64 GB of internal flash storage.

The ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Pro (ZC554KL) Preview

On 17 August 2017, ASUS launched the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Pro (ZC554KL) smartphone with Korean superstar Gong Yoo at the Next TV Studio in Taipei. Let’s take a look at the specifications and key features of the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Pro, as well as our hands-on preview of the first unit in Taipei!

 

The ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Pro (ZC554KL) Smartphone

The new ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Pro smartphone is designed to offer extremely-long battery life to users who are always on-the-go, and may not have ready access to a power source.

Two cameras for perfect photos!

All ZenFone 4 models will feature two cameras. This is because two cameras and their specialized lenses are ideal for shooting different subjects at different distances.

  • First rear camera – a 16 megapixel main camera with a standard 80-degree field of view,
  • Second rear camera – with a 120-degree field of view that is better for capturing wider subjects or for shooting in confined spaces.
  • Front camera – the ZenFone 4 Max Pro also has a higher-than-normal resolution, 16 megapixel front camera for sharp and clear selfies.

Massive battery for longer shooting!

The ZenFone 4 Max Pro is the series with the ultra-high 5000mAH capacity battery, capable of powering the smartphone for 46 days on standby, or simply allowing users to shoot for far longer periods than conventional smartphones.

It provides 3 hours of talk time with just 15 minutes of charging, has twice the lifespan of conventional phone batteries and can act as a backup power bank!

Reverse Charging

A useful trick of the ZenFone 4 Max Pro is its ability to double up as a power bank for charging other devices using a USB on-the-go cable.

2X Battery Lifespan

Despite the battery’s high capacity, it also has twice the lifespan of a typical smartphone’s battery thanks to advanced Asus battery management technologies that monitor its temperature and manages its charging limits.

The battery is also built in with protection against 12 safety checkpoints including excessive temperatures and overvoltage to automatically stop charging when these are detected.
