Asus Zenfone 3 Laser and Max go official with middling specs and prices

The seemingly simplified Asus Zenfone family is essentially getting just as convoluted as last year, with third-gen Laser and Max models unveiled shortly after the announcements of standard, Deluxe and Ultra versions, plus a Pegasus and an even higher-end Deluxe bidding for the title of the world’s first Snapdragon 821 powerhouse.

So, exactly how do the Asus Zenfone 3 Laser and Max stand out from the pack? For one thing, they’ve just seen daylight in Vietnam (of all places), suggesting perhaps they’re not global devices. Which is a pity, because the two have a lot to offer for fairly low prices.

Specifically, 6 and 4.5 million in local currency respectively, which sounds like a boatload of cash, but equates to a measly $270 for the Laser and $200 as far as the Zenfone 3 Max is concerned.

Now, don’t let the latter’s name fool you, as you’re looking at a relatively pocket-friendly 5.2-incher here. The Max moniker instead hints at a gargantuan 4,100 mAh battery, paired with a mystery processor and 3GB RAM.

The Asus Zenfone 3 Laser is slightly larger, at 5.5 inches, about as sharp (Full HD resolution), packing 4 gigs of memory, another unspecified SoC and an equally cryptic cell. Also, it’s got a 13MP rear camera with super-advanced laser autofocus in tow (duh).
