Asides from the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser series, ASUS Malaysia recently held a media briefing that revealed a roadmap of coming ZenFones for 2015. This includes the ASUS ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition, ASUS ZenFone Zoom and ASUS ZenFone Max. The ASUS ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition will feature all the highest-end tech specs including a 64-bit Intel Atom processor, 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. ASUS will also include a 128GB microSD card as part of the package for a still unknown price tag sometime in November 2015. The ZenFone Zoom on the other hand offers a 3x optical zoom without any telescoping lens while the ZenFone Max will pack in a 5000 mAh battery, both with expected Malaysia release dates in December 2015. No pricing details yet, but we expect the ZenFone Deluxe Special Edition and ZenFone Zoom to range from at least RM1000 and above. While the battery is massive, the other tech specs on the ZenFone Max are decidedly midrange indicating a price tag of around RM799 or RM899 for the ZenFone Max. Stay tuned the next couple of months for more information.

The recently announced ASUS ZenFone 2 Deluxe looks to be getting an upgrade as the ASUS ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition was recently announced for Brazil, this time packing in 256GB of storage over the previous 128GB. While 128GB is already huge, 256GB should make this Special Edition the videographers go to cameraphone along with other professionals who work with large files. Other tech specs remain the same as before though with a 64-bit 2.5GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 4GB RAM, up to 128GB microSD slot and 5.5-inch FHD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. There are also a 13MP Pixelmaster rear camera with double tone LED flash, 5MP front camera and 3000 mAh battery. It will have two backplates, an angled black line version and a white Illusion pattern. So far there are no Malaysia release dates or pricing details but it seems unlikely that it will reach Malaysia through official channels anytime soon, considering that we still haven't got the ZenFone Zoom and are now just getting the ZenFone Selfie next weekend. It'd be great if we were wrong, but if you still want the ASUS ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition keep an eye on third-party sellers like SatuGadgetDotCom or DirectD.
