When Asus launched the Asus Zonfone Max which packs a massive 5000mAh battery it seemed like we weren’t going to get another power-bank of a phone from Asus. Alas! We were wrong as Asus has just recently unveiled the Asus Pegasus 5000. This new smartphone from Asus packs a massive 4850mAh battery and will be available in two variants. The model with 2GB of RAM is priced at CNY 1,299 (approximately N42,000), while the more expensive 3GB RAM model will be priced at CNY 1,799 (approximately N60,000).

It can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card as well.
