ZenFone 2 Deluxe Edition news: Upgrade receives 256GB built-in storage, a boost on chipset


Asus continues to upgrade the features of the ZenFone 2 with yet another iteration, following the recently introduced ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition.

Last November, the company launched a ZenFone 2 variation called ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition, with 2.3GHz quad-core Z3580 Atom processor and Power VR G6430 for its graphics, along with 4GB of RAM, and 128GB built-in storage that can be expanded for up to 64GB through microSD.

Now, it has introduced another upgrade in the ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition, boosting the chipset to a 2.5 GHZ Intel Z3590 processor that is expected to give the device more speed. Aside from this, the new variant has also increased its internal storage to a whopping 256GB, which can still be expanded through a microSD. This means that the device already has a hefty storage to store photos and other applications with still lots of leeway to add to it.

In addition to the enhancements under the hood, the new device will also have two options for its back covers, the Carbon Night, which gives a more outgoing look in its sports-weave patterns, and the Drift Sliver, which boasts multi-faceted tactile finish to up to 500 polygons.

As for other features, the device retains the same 5.5-inch full HD display at 1080×1920 pixel resolution. It also keeps the same 13-megapixel primary camera that has dual color real tone flash, as well as the 5-megapixel secondary snapper. Aside from these, the ZenFone 2 Deluxe Edition upgrade also houses 3,000 mAh battery and the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system out of the box. The new handset supports 4G LTE connection, two sim cards, as well as the same additional features added to ZenFone 2 Deluxe Edition such as e-compass, gyroscope, proximity, and ambient light sensors.

At the moment, no word has been released in terms of the cost and launch date of the upgraded ZenFone 2 Deluxe Edition.
