“The ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 specifications leaked now show the smartphone will have 12MP + 5MP cameras on the back, 6-inch display, and 5,000mAh battery”
With the Redmi Note 6 Pro already been launched, all eyes are on the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 smartphone to see what it brings to the table. The ASUS model is confirmed to launch on December 11th in Indonesia, so we will find out all the details about the handset in a few weeks. However, ahead of the launch, a new video has revealed all the key details about the smartphone and quashed one key rumour surrounding the handset.
SlashLeaks has shared images that show a YouTube channel by the name of Androideo had released a video of ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2. This video — which has since been deleted — shows the smartphone has a dual camera setup on the back. This is contrary to the rumours of a triple rear camera module. ASUS had officially teased an image with the ZenFone Max Pro M2 back panel clearly showing two vertically stacked camera sensors, and a third curve that could either be another camera sensor or the LED flash. Screenshots taken from this alleged video show the third one is indeed the LED flash and not a camera sensor.
The image has also revealed that the ZenFone Max Pro M2 camera setup on the back will consist of 12MP and 5MP sensors. The former will have the Sony IMX486 image sensor, 6P lens, f/1.8 aperture, 1.25-micron pixel size, Phase-Detection Autofocus (PDAF), and Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS). The second camera is only for bokeh effect, the screenshot says. The front camera module will be housed inside a wide notch and will have a 13MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and soft LED flash for selfie light.
Screenshots also show the smartphone will have a highly reflective glass back panel, with a fingerprint mounted above the company’s logo. The volume rocker and power button will be on the left edge.
A separate report, this one by a site called BeetelBite, shows similar screenshots said to have been taken from a video by the YouTube channel GadgetsNow. This video was allegedly taken down within a few minutes of publishing, and confirmed some of the ZenFone Max Pro M2 specifications as well. These include the 6-inch full-HD+ display with 19:9 aspect ratio, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and 5,000mAh battery. This report also claims the rear camera setup will be 12MP + 5MP.
