ASUS Unveils ZenFone 3 Max & ZenFone 3 Laser Handsets


ASUS had introduced three ZenFone 3 devices back in May, the ZenFone 3, ZenFone 3 Ultra and ZenFone 3 Deluxe. These three devices are quite affordable as well, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is an especially great deal considering its premium specifications, and low price at the same time. Now, we were wondering when will additional ZenFone 3 devices land, especially after we've seen a couple of Bluetooth SIG listings yesterday. Well, we didn't have to wait for long, at all, the company has just introduced two new ZenFone 3 models, read on.

The company has introduced the ZenFone 3 Max and ZenFone 3 Laser during the Zenvolution 2016 event in Vietnam. Both of these phones are mid-range offerings, more or less, let's check out their specs, shall we. The ZenFone 3 Max features a 5.2-inch 720p (1280 x 720) 2.5D curved display, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage (expandable via a microSD card). This handset is fueled by the MT6737 64-bit quad-core SoC by MediaTek, and a 4,100mAh battery is available here as well, though it is not removable. The 13-megapixel shooter is placed on the back of the ZenFone 3 Max, and a 5-megapixel snapper is available on its front side. Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on the ZenFone 3 Max, and on top of it, you'll find ASUS' ZenUI 2.0 user interface. The phone also offers 4G LTE connectivity, a fingerprint scanner, and two SIM card slots (hybrid SIM).

The ASUS ZenFone 3 Laser, on the other hand, features a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) 2.5D curved panel, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 430 64-bit octa-core processor, and unfortunately, we still don't know how big is ZenFone 3 Laser's battery pack. The 13-megapixel camera (f/2.0 aperture, Sony's IMX214 sensor, Laser AF, 3-axis EIS) is placed on the back of this phone, and a 4G LTE connectivity is also a part of this package. Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes as part of the ZenFone 3 Laser package as well, and the same ZenUI version is available here as on the ZenFone 3 Max.


The ZenFone 3 Max comes in Glacier Silver, Titanium Gray and Sand Gold color variants, and costs 4,490,000 Vietnamese Dong ($200) in the country. The ZenFone 3 Laser can be purchased in Gold, Silver and Rose Gold colors, and the phone is priced at 5,990,000 Vietnamese Dong ($268).
