Well, the phones have been finally launched. Many people had anticipated that the Taiwanese tech giant will launch Zenfone Max Pro M2 but this didn’t happen. Instead of launching the successor to Max Pro M1, Asus introduced two new Zenfone Max series 5000 to 10000 Rs range phones. The mobiles resemble Asus’s best-selling phone in India – the Zenfone Max Pro M1 and they have good features.
