New Delhi, April 23 (IANS) Taiwanese smartphone maker ASUS on Monday announced the global debut of ZenFone Max Pro (M1) from India, which is the first device from the company to be co-marketed and distributed online on Flipkart.

The smartphone is also ASUS' first device to offer a pure, stock version of Android with the latest version Android 8.1.
ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M1) will be available in two variants -- 3GB/32GB for Rs 10,999 and the 4GB/64GB for Rs 12,999 on Flipkart from May 3.
The third variant 6GB/64 GB with 16MP + 5MP dual rear cameras and a 16MP front camera will be available for Rs 14,999 later.
