Asus Indonesia tweeted out an official teaser for the Zenfone Max Pro (M2), which is slightly misleading and tries to suggest that the phone has a triple camera, even though it doesn’t.

The second generation Pro will be unveiled on December 11 and the tweet makes a big deal about the battery (5,000mAh capacity). It also promises a gaming flavor with a hint of a more performant chipset.
