Asus Released 256GB Version of ZenFone 2

ASUS ZenFone 2

There has been a lot of talk about smartphone storage recently. Mostly because of lack of expandable storage in Samsung phones. Now Asus has released new interesting storage option for ZenFone 2.

Asus Zenfone 2 already had a 64GB variant with a microSD slot. The new model however packs a whopping 256GB of internal storage with microSD support for up to 128GB cards. The new model is called ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition.

All the other specs match the original ZenFone 2 64GB model. Intel Atom Z3580 SoC, 4GB of RAM and 3000mAh battery are powering the 5.5″ Full HD display and Android 5.0 Lollipop.

There’s no information about pricing yet but the 64GB model costs around $300, so the 256GB model might be around $350. For now the Deluxe Special Editon is launching only in Brazil.

It’s good to see the smartphone storage sizes growing as at least the flagships are dropping the expandable storage option. These kind of internal storage sizes would keep even the power users happy.
