ZenFone Max is interesting because it has extra large 5.000mAh battery and can be used as powerbank. The spec is also nice with 5.5-inch, Lollipop, Gorilla Glass 4, Snapdragon 410 and 2GB of RAM, 15 and 5MP camera, and LTE. But no pricing yet.
The most interesting model is the ZenFone 2 Laser. There will be 4 models of them. Laser means that they supports Laser Auto-Focus feature for the main camera. ZE500KG, ZE500KL, ZE550KL, and ZE601KL. That's correct everybody. ZenFone 2 will be available with 6" FHD screen.
All of the Zenfone 2 laser will come with Qualcomm processor. Either Snapdragon 410 or 615, 2GB of RAM (3GB for ZE601KL), 5/13MP camera, Gorilla Glass 4, dual SIM, and LTE for the SKUs that ends with ZE500KL, ZE550KL, and ZE601KL. The 5" will come with 2000mAh battery, while the 5'5" will have 3000mAh battery.
How about the pricing? It starts from 9.999 Rupee or around Rp2,199 million for the ZE500KG, around Rp2,499 million for the ZE550KL, and around Rp3,499 million for ZE601KL.
