The recent news of the Nokia 6 made quite a few "mehs" with most of those directed at the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor it uses. Other tech specs like the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage didn't get as much flak so we thought we'd check out the Snapdragon 430 processor using our similarly powered ASUS ZenFone 3 Max 5.5 or ZC553KL. Granted, there are differences between the two phones which you can see with our comparison tool, but the Nokia 6 does have the same display and more memory, so the differences in performance should be negligable if not better.

ASUS Malaysia recently revealed that their ASUS ZenFone 3 Max ZC520TL smartphone is now available at the online ASUS Malaysia Store for RM799. Joining the ZenFone 3 ZE552KL and ZE520KL alongside the ZenFone 3 Ultra ZU680KL, the good folks at ASUS Malaysia also revealed that the ZenFone 3 Laser ZC551KL going for RM999 will be available in mid-October 2016.

Finally, the most entry-level ASUS ZenFone 3 range, the ASUS ZenFone 3 Max ZC551KL is the only ZenFone 3 to use a quad-core MediaTek processor and a 5.2-inch 720p display. It still offers updated features like a fingerprint sensor with an aluminum unibody backside. It also uses a 13MP rear camera with just a single LED flash, and also uses a microUSB port. The ASUS tech guys assure us that battery life is just as good as the ASUS ZenFone 2 Max, despite the smaller 4000 mAh battery, but perhaps this is partly due to the MediaTek processor.

Just yesterday, ASUS has introduced two new members to the Zenfone 3 family - ASUS Zenfone 3 Laser and Zenfone 3 Max in Vietnam. Unfortunately, there are no official render pictures of them, official specifications are not fully released as well but this is what we know about the two new Zenfones so far.

A picture of what might be the ASUS ZenFone 3 Max has appeared. Confirming the metal frame and flat and thin design, the ZenFone 3 Max looks to have a 5.7-inch display with 720p resolution tech specs and will likely either retain the 5000 mAh battery that gave its predecessor the ZenFone Max a 1 week battery life or exceed it. The blurry picture doesn't help but it seems as if there will be either rear volume controls or a fingerprint sensor on the back.

As usual per the countdown to their Computex Zenvolution event, ASUS have released a teaser video, this time for their ASUS ZenFone 3. Thanks to previous leaks we know that the ZenFone 3 series will have a metal frame with glass front and back but the video confirms a fingerprint sensor on the back as well, perhaps not for all of the ZenFone 3 models. Other tech specs weren't detailed but so far we know that there will be at least 3 variants (ZenFone 3, Max and Deluxe), they will likely feature Qualcomm or MediaTek processors and be announced on 30 May 2016.
