ASUS is expanding the ZenFone 3 family with yet another smartphone with a massive battery capacity. The new ASUS ZenFone 3s Max (ZC521TL) is a tweaked version of the current ZenFone 3 Max. ASUS will launch the ZenFone 3s Max with much fanfare, and you can tune in to watch the launch live.
ASUS ZenFone 3 Max carries the company’s formula of packing a bigger battery in an affordable smartphone. Now the ZenFone 3s Max brings a few upgrades to that. For starters, an octa-core MediaTek M6750 chipset powers it along with 3GB of RAM. Technically, that’s a bump from quad-core MediaTek MT6737M chipset in the ZenFone 3 Max.
The ZenFone 3s Max sports the same 5.2-inch LCD screen with 2.5D curved glass. By default, it supports HD resolution and an IPS panel. Regarding storage, the ZenFone 3s Max arrives with 32GB of built-in storage. It offers dual-SIM slots where the second slot is also usable to expand storage with up to 256GB microSD card.
At the rear, the ZenFone 3s Max has a 13-megapixel snapper with f/2.0 apertures and offers autofocus. There’s a LED flash to help out in low-light situations. On the front is an 8-megapixel camera which is a good upgrade from the 5-megapixel one in the ZenFone 3 Max.
Another change is the dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac support. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS, and FM Radio.
ASUS ZenFone 3s Max boots ASUS UI 3.0 based on Android 7.0 Nougat. The most noteworthy change is the bump in battery capacity. ASUS has added a 5,000 mAh battery in the ZenFone 3s Max which is a good upgrade from 4,100 mAh battery packing predecessor.
