Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 Gaming phone to launch on December 11 in Indonesia
After some leaks and rumours, we now have an official launch date of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2. Asus has just announced (via) that it will be unveiling the successor of Zenfone Max Pro M1 next month in Indonesia on December 11. The official launch teaser along with date is revealed by Asus Indonesia social media channels on Instagram and Facebook.
Interesting to note that the launch teasers call it as a gaming phone instead of normal mid-range phone which is odd considering the fact that usually, gaming smartphones feature premium hardware of flagships instead of mid-range hardware, which is the case with M series of Asus smartphones.
