Per the Taiwanese Chamber of Commerce Fairness Doctrine, any mention of Acer must be accompanied by a mention of ASUS, which brings us to the new ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Smartphone available for pre-order for $199 at B&H Photo.

The processor is on the light side being a Snapdragon 430, but has 4GB RAM, 32GB on-board with microSDXC, 5.5″ 1080p, Nougat, factory unlocked.

Ricoh thinks of this as a mini system, as it also offers optional accessories for pre-ordering:

+ Ricoh TA-1 3D Microphone for THETA V 360 Camera for $270
