    Asus packs 256GB of storage on Zenfone 2

    SIZE matters, especially when it comes to a smartphone's internal storage space. Knowing this, Asus recently announced a 256GB version of the Zenfone 2. This is massive for a phone, as many have 128GB of built-in storage or less.

    Dubbed the Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition, the smartphone will retail next month, but only in Brazil. There's no word yet if it will be available elsewhere.

    According to Asus' announcement, the Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition's specifications will not be very different, other than the storage space. It will come with a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display, 2.3GHz 64-bit Intel Atom processor, 4GB RAM, as well as 13MP rear and 5MP front PixelMaster cameras.

    Like the Zenfone 2 it is based on, this model supports LTE network connection.

    The phone will come in two colours: carbon night, which has a carbon-fibre pattern on the back, and drift silver, which has a refracted crystal arrangement in silver.

    The Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition comes with a special copy of the Asphalt 8 racing game, which includes pre-paid credits for in-game purchases.
