Asus launched the ZenFone Max Pro M1 in India back in April with impressive hardware specs in an attempt to take on Xiaomi. Three different models of the device were announced with 3GB, 4GB, and 6GB RAM, but only the first two were made available at launch, with the promise that the 6GB model will be launched at a later date.
While the company is yet to officially announce availability for the premium variant, Smartprix has now seemingly unearthed what looks like an under-construction listing page for the 6GB Max Pro on Flipkart, suggesting an imminent launch of the device.
The page may be a work-in-progress, but as can be seen in the image below, its source-code seems to reveal that it will be the listing page for the 6GB+64GB model of the ZenFone Max Pro M1.
It’s worth noting here that although the 6GB variant of the Max Pro offer similar hardware to that of its more affordable stablemates, it does ship with better cameras than those models. While the base models feature a 13MP+5MP module on the back, the 6GB version will ship with a 16MP primary sensor instead of the 13MP one. It will also get a 16MP shooter on the front instead of the 13MP sensor found on the lower-end models.

The rest of the tech-specs, including the 5.99-inch Full HD+ display, the Snapdragon 636 processor, the massive 5,000mAh battery and the pure Android software (instead of ZenUI) remain the same across all variants. Asus has already announced that the device will be priced at Rs. 14,999 once available, so it will be interesting to see when it will finally go on sale.
