ASUS today announced the ZenFone Max, a new smartphone from the company with a massive 5,000mAh battery. The battery is a sizeable improvement over current flagships from multiple vendors, and is capable of being deployed as a power bank when other smartphones simply run out of juice.
The ZenFone Max has a 13-MP f/2.0 rear main camera with dual-tone LED flash, as well as a 5-MP selfie machine on the front. The display itself is 5.5-inches and sports Gorilla Glass 4. Powering the OS is an entry-level Snapdragon 410 CPU alongside 2GB of RAM. There's no word on pricing just yet, but the handset is expected to be released in October.
