To Be Available with Android Go

Everybody is trying to jump on the Android GO bandwagon, because it really is a boon to entry-level devices. As for the 1GB RAM variant, the OS is Android Oreo Go Edition. However, Xiaomi's dominance in these price segments was challenged last week by Asus with the launch of the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 in India.

However, the availability of Android Go-based ZenFone Live L1 depends from one market to another.

So far, Asus smartphones have had the custom ZenUI on top of Android. Everything here is created to take up less space and use less bandwidth, as well as run on modest hardware.

In terms of specifications, the Zenfone Live L1 will come with a 5.45-inch HD+ display with 1080x2160 pixels resolution and an unusual 18:9 aspect ratio. Under-the-hood, there is a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 636 processor paired with Adreno 509 GPU coupled with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via a dedicated microSD slot. As you can see, the hardware is modest but it will run Android GO efficiently. Asus has been pushing out a few software updates to the Zenfone Max Pro before its first sale and the new update brings the Face Unlock feature to the device. At the launch, the company also announced that a 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant with better camera capabilities will be launched at a price of Rs 14999. With a triple SIM-card tray (2 SIM slots and a microSD card), the smartphone offers 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System as connectivity options.

The smartphone was launched with three variants i.e. the 3GB RAM+32GB storage version which is priced at Rs. 10,999, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant which is priced at Rs. 12,999, and the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage version which costs Rs 14,999.

There's a 13MP PDAF main camera and a 5MP front-facing snapper that's also used for face unlock.

The Asus ZenFone Max Pro is a competitor to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro (which recently received a price hike for the 4GB RAM variant). Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is available in 3/4/6GB of RAM and 32/64/128GB storage models. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, BDS, GLONASS and microUSB. The fingerprint sensor at the back panel works fine in our testing as well.
