ASUS Releasing Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition in PH, With Combined 256GB Of Storage


If you run out of space on this one, it’s entirely your fault

ASUS has officially announced their special edition Zenfone 2 Deluxe in the PH, and it’s a doozy. First off, the special edition Zenfone 2 Deluxe has a faster clockspeed than the original, running at 2.5GHz instead of the standard 2.3GHz. There’s two new removable covers thrown in, which shows off the unique style of the Zenfone.

ASUS Zenfone Deluxe special edition

  • 64-bit Intel Atom 2.5GHz Z3590 quad-core processor
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 5.5-inch full HD IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3, 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 128GB of storage, expandable via microSD up to 128GB, comes with free 128GB microSD card
  • 13-megapixel rear camera, f/2.0-aperture, 5-element, autofocus with dual-color Real Tone flash
  • 5-megapixel front camera, f/2.0-aperture, wide-angle 85-degree lens with Selfie Panorama
  • Dual SIM
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, NFC
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop with ZenUI
  • 3000mAh battery

Aside from that, ASUS is also throwing in a 128GB microSD card with the Special Edition Zenfone 2 Deluxe, which, along with the 128GB of storage already in the phone, gives you a massive 256GB of storage on top for all your media and games. It’s already pretty hard to completely fill up the interal storage of a regular Zenfone 2 Deluxe, what more the new version?

If that wasn’t enough, ASUS also threw in 25,000 worth of in-game credit for Asphalt 8, so you can play with the Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition to your heart’s content.

The new Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition is priced at Php 20,995.

  1. I’m kinda skeptical about the whole “256 GB” storage capacity on this phone for 2 reasons:
    1. The formatted storage capacity on a microSD card may actually be less than advertised.
    2. The whole operating system itself, as well as all of Asus’ pre-installed apps, consumes gigabytes of storage.
    It may be less than “256 GB” storage, albeit it was still overkill for a smartphone.

    1. That applies to all smartphones, even apple mac ipad devices, or pc’s laptops and other external storage devices as well.

      You’re a bozo FiatLux. Wahahahaha! 🙂

      1. But I’m just focusing on ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition and its advertised “256 GB” storage. I already knew that my points apply to any consumer tech before…

    2. So, everyone who reads this site knows everything you already said. For arguments sake though, who cares if the OS takes up 50gb of the storage (which rarely happens, usually it only takes up >10gb), 200gb is still the highest for its price in this phone. You’re just arguing semantics at this point.

  2. Fiatlux you are an idiot…Kelan ba nag advertise ang isang HDD manufacturer like SEAGATE and WESTERN DIGITAL na 1.81TB ang usable space ang kanilang 2TB hard drives? Laging 2TB yan

    Same thing applies to all MicroSD’s…walang pinagkaiba.

    AND If you don’t like ASUS’ pre-installed apps you can always root your phone and uninstall it….

    1. 1. Okay, I would acknowledge that.
      Many people wouldn’t care about advertised storages, yes. They knew these doesn’t make any differences.
      But calm down; sometimes I nitpick on advertising anyway. That’s just my minor nitpick that shouldn’t be treated seriously.

      2. Yes, rooting the phone would allow you to get rid of bloatware easily, but also it will let you install custom ROMs for this phone, which are already developed and were many in numbers.
