The Asus ZenFone 2 Deluxe is one of the three smartphones unveiled by Asus at their ZenFestival event held in India yesterday. The other two were the ZenFone 2 Laser and the 5,000mAh battery-equipped ZenFone Max.
The ZenFone 2 Deluxe prominently sports a “multifaceted polygonal design aesthetic” on its back panel, making it the most attractive and beautiful device in terms of design. Just in case you are interested to know how many triangles are in there to complete this "crystal miracle", there are about more than 500 of them.
Looks aside, the ZenFone 2 Deluxe sports some minor changes from the original flagship ZenFone 2 that was released in the Philippines a couple of months ago. One of those is the internal storage, this will be available in two options, one in 64GB and annother in 128GB. If in any case 128 gigabytes of space is still not enough, you can also buy a microSD card up to another 128GB making it a total of 256GB storage. Only 4GB RAM version will be launched, no more 3GB RAM this time around.
Still sporting Android 5.0 Lollipop with ZenUI, 13MP rear camera with with f/2.0 aperture, 5-element, autofocus and dual-tone flash and a 5MP front shooter equipped with wide-angle 85-degree lens with Selfie Panorama. Both with PixelMaster tech.
