Asus is launching a special edition ZenFone 2 that sports a fancy new back panel and a whopping 256GB of internal storage. The handset’s official name is ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition, and it’s set to make its debut next month.
Despite its affordable price tag, the ZenFone 2 was one of the first Android-powered devices to offer 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB internal storage option. Combined with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, speedy Intel Atom processor, and a 13-megapixel camera, these things make for a very compelling device.
But Asus wants the ZenFone 2 to be even more attractive for media hogs. Its new Deluxe Special Edition version comes with a funky polygonal pattern backplate in either Drift Silver or Carbon Night, and an incredible 256GB of internal storage.
That’s twice as much storage as the 128GB found in the most expensive devices from Apple and Samsung, and even more than most entry-level notebooks. But there is one downside: the Deluxe Special Edition is destined for Brazil, and Asus hasn’t yet announced availability for other markets.
The original ZenFone 2 has arrived in the U.S., however, and it has been greeted by positive reviews. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the special edition model following it, then, but it seems Asus could make us wait a little while for it.
