With IFA in full swing, a whole new suite of smartphones are making their debut. Asus is happy to join that party and, based on this newest device, they’re ready to go all night. It’s called the Asus ZenFone Max because it’s rocking a gigantic 5,000mAh battery that’s said to let the phone lasts a full two days between charging.

The good news is that you get a massive battery so you don’t have to worry about running out of juice at the most inopportune of moments. The bad news is that this battery is not user-removable, even though you can take off the plastic back to access the dual SIM card slots and the memory card slot. To further prioritize battery life, the 5.5-inch display is only of the 720p variety.

Whereas the ZenFone Selfie focused on self-portraits, it’s obvious enough that the otherwise mid-range ZenFone Max pushes battery life. Just like the lower screen resolution, the rest of the specs are meant to reduce battery drain. You get a Snapdragon 410 processor, for example, to go along with the 2GB of RAM. Rounding out the spec sheet are 8/16GB of storage, 13MP camera, laser autofocus, and a 5MP selfie cam.

With the noted exception of the ginormous battery, the spec sheet on the ZenFone Max isn’t going to amaze anyone… but at least it does more than just swap out the back like the ZenFone 2 Deluxe. Pricing and availability have not yet been announced, but we’re hoping it’ll launch at less than $300 sans contract.
