Walmart has completed its due diligence on Flipkart and has made a proposal to buy 51 percent or more of the Indian company for between $10 billion to $12 billion.

But some recent leaks reveal that it is powered by the Snapdragon 636 chipset, a slightly less powerful version of the Snapdragon 660. Asus Zenfone Max Pro comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. In case of ASUS, it still needs to come a long way to compete with the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei after it manages to even get back up after the recent success of Vivo and Oppo.
