Delivering over 40%-higher CPU performance and 10%-higher graphics performance than the 630 Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform, the Snapdragon 636 is an advanced 14nm 64-bit Octa-core system-on-a-chip (SoC) with 3GB RAM which helps to maintain excellent battery life. The ZenFone Max Pro (M1) comes with dual rear camera that is capable of gorgeous Bokeh effects in Portrait mode. The rear camera has a high-resolution up to 13MP sensor with a high-quality f/2.2 wide-aperture lens.
