In the GeekBench listing, the Asus Zenfone 5 Max got 1518 points in single-core test and in multi-core test it received 5386 points. However, now talks of a fourth device under this series is going on. However, the company missed out on the Zenfone 5 Max, which could be an affordable version with a capacious battery for a long-lasting backup. The Asus Zenfone 5 Max has now been listed on the popular benchmarking website Geekbench and the listing shows that the smartphone will have Snapdragon 660 SoC and 4GB RAM.
If you're using a ZenFone 3 or ZenFone 4, ASUS has started rolling out its latest Android 8.0 Oreo. The ZenFone 5 Max had received the Wi-Fi Alliance certification before the company's MWC 2017 event in Barcelona, Spain, so it was being expected that ASUS would showcase it along with the three other phones from the ZenFone 5 series.More news: US Defence Secretary Mattis arrives in Kabul on unannounced visit
Sadly, there is no mention on the battery size or what kind of camera setup it will have, but seeing as the benchmarks are already out, we should be hearing more about the phone in the coming weeks.
Alongside the three Zenfone 5 series, Asus also launched the ZenFone Max (M1) smartphone that follows the design language of last year's ZenFone Max Plus (M1). It is also rumoured to come with 64GB internal storage and some reports also suggest that Asus might be tempted to place a notch on top of the Asus Zenfone 5 Max display which could be similar to the iPhone X in terms of looks. There are two variants of the phone- one that runs on Snapdragon 425 and the other runs on Snapdragon 430.
