In Android 8 .1 Developer Preview 2, Google has changed the place of the cheese slice and has brought it on top of the meat patty. Another emoji that has been fixed is of the cheese, which now has refined edges on the holes and readjusted colour tone.

It comes with two storage options - 2GB RAM + 16GB storage and 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage - with an option for expanding the storage via a dedicated microSD card slot that can take cards up to 256GB. The fingerprint sensor has been mounted on the rear panel as well for more screen real estate on the front. On the inside, the new ZenFone series smartphone packs an octa-core MediaTek 6750T processor and the amount of memory mentioned earlier. Zenfone Max Plus gets its juice from a large 4130mAh non-removable battery which offers up to 24 days standby time and 24 hours of talk time. It comes with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor which has a wide-angle lens. Another major feature of the phone is the dual-camera setup on the back side, which consists of 16MP and 8MP cameras. Up front, Asus has added an 8MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. The smartphone is running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS that is skinned with Zen UI 4.0. Connectivity options also include Bluetooth, dual-SIM, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and Global Positioning System.

There are still no details on price, release date, or availability from ASUS, but we'll let you know when we have more news; given the Russian Federation listing, it's likely that the Max Plus (M1) will first go on sale there though. Some of the key highlights of this smartphone are 18:9 minimal bezel display, dual rear camera and 4,130mAh battery.
