It’s not that we’re complaining that we’re not getting the 256GB variant of the Asus Zenfone 2 which was recently announced in Brazil, but hey, 128GB isn’t that bad.
It was in May that the Taiwanese tech firm announced the arrival of the Zenfone 2 in the Philippines, along with 4 variants. Prior to our turn, the 128GB version of the 2 was quietly launched in India for RS 29,999, or roughly around P21,100.00. Some might say that the price range is quite expensive, especially for an Asian company. It’s not for everybody, to say the least, considering that the 64GB variant comes in at only P15,000 and it comes with an expandable memory. Hence, buying a MicroSD card to double the capacity is more practical in most terms. Then again, having a built-in whopper of a memory can’t hurt, especially if you have some extra cash to spare.
On the other hand, the ZenFestival Manila became the official venue where the Zenfone 2 Deluxe with 128GB onboard memory stepped into the spotlight. Aside from the aforementioned memory space, the 2 stood out because of its unique “multi-faced polygonal finish” that depicts laser-cut diamonds. It also changes in shade and perspective depending on how the light hits the back panel. That alone can live up to the “Deluxe” post Asus gave the device, together with its huge memory.
Aside from the memory headline, the Zenfone 2 Deluxe will highlight a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS+ Truvivid display screen lathered with a protective layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 that will offer no nonsense viewing experience coupled with vibrant and high quality colors. Inside lies a 64-bit, 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 quad-core processor and a PowerVR G6430 graphics card. It’s also worth mentioning that the Zenfone 2 Deluxe comes with a 4GB RAM, which means that multitasking would be a breeze. Also, there’s a 13megapixel PixelMaster autofocus camera with Dual Tone plus a 5megapixel clicker in front.
As an added feature, Asus also gave the Deluxe with an Android 5.0 Lollipop with Zen UI, full HD capture and BoostMaster charging technology. Likewise, it will have a microSD card slot where you can add another 128GB to double your storage.
The Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe will be available this month for P17,995.00.
