Not only smaller companies from China or India are launching huge battery smartphones, but also bigger ones. ASUS for example debuted today the ZenFone Max in India, a device that impresses through a very generous battery capacity.
The device packs a 5000 mAh cell and can be used as a power bank to charge other handsets. ZenFone Max also comes with a 13 megapixel main camera with F/2.0 aperture, laser autofocus and dual LED flash, as well as a 5 megapixel front shooter and 5.5 inch screen. The latter comes with Gorilla Glass 4 protection and the phone relies on a quad core 64 bit Snapdragon 410 CPU, as well as 2 GB of RAM.
There’s quite a bit of waiting time till the product actually reaches the market, since it will be sold starting with October. The price is not known yet, but similar models, with big batteries like Gionee Marathon M4 or Innos D6000 cost below $300.
