Just a matter of hours ago, ASUS has been on the spotlight in Barcelona for announcing its latest smartphone offerings, the Zenfone 5, Zenfone 5Z and Zenfone 5 Lite. However, there’s another product there that the Taiwanese company brought with – the Zenfone Max (M1).

The Zenfone Max (M1) is simply a toned-down version of the existing Zenfone Max Plus (M1) and the company’s latest addition to its high battery capacity series of smartphones.
