We’ve had a couple of photos of the upcoming ZenFone Max Plus M1 last December. ASUS, however, has just teased the release of their upcoming 18:9 smartphone.

The ASUS ZenFone Max Plus M1 is expected to come with a MediaTek 6750T octa-core clocked at 1.5GHz with 4GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the screen is a 5.7-inch 18:9 screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 with 2.5D glass.

The ZenFone Max Plus M1 is also anticipated to come with a 16MP f/2.0 + 8MP f/2.4 (Wide-angle) rear cameras assisted with autofocus and LED flash while the front imaging of the Max Plus is handled with an 8MP with screen flash.

Based on the teased photos, ASUS will also be implementing their own take on the Face Unlock Technology much like with the iPhone X, OPPO F5, Vivo V7+ and V7. Of course, since the smartphone is carrying the “Max” moniker, it will have quite a sizeable battery at 4,130mAh.
