    Asus continued it confusing naming prevalent in the 2 series. This is almost a zenfone 3 laser Max than it is Max. And the Laser 3 haven’t even been released yet.

    Battery life will be a lot worse than since it’s still a 28nm chipset but they increased the resolution.

    This phone sits between Zenfone 3 Max 5.2″ and Zenfone 3 Laser. so the price should be in between. or probably same price as Zenfone 3 laser, you just have to pick whether to get additional 32gb of internal storage and 1GB or RAM, or the addinional 1,100mah of battery.

    Good job Asus. That is truly an upgrade, not update like the previous ZF3 Max, now you’re back in business. Kung Hindi nyo inilabas Ito, sigurado Marami ang magle-left turn sa parating na Lenovo K6 Note. Kindly look at the Specs of the K6 Note, better than previous ZF3 Max at Lower price.

    Judging by the photo above, it suggest that it has laser autofocus as well?

      No price has been disclosed although we doubt it will have the same pricing due to the bump in specs.

    According sa Source, this uses Snapdragon 430, ano ang totoo? Plus mukhang may Laser Focus, pero dun sa specs, wala. hahaha.. ano ba yan..
