Brazil Gets A Special Edition Of The ASUS Zenfone 2 With A Massive 256GB Storage And A Unique Back

64GB? Kid's stuff. 128GB? Paltry. Real smartphone spec-hounds will settle for nothing less than 256GB of local onboard storage (which, incidentally, is more than many laptops these days). At least they'd settle for nothing less if any of those phones were actually available. There will be one soon, in at least one location: the ASUS Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition. It's coming to Brazil sometime in the future for an unspecified price, though "quite a lot" would be a safe bet. The model was shown off on the official ASUS Brazil blog.

The Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition is identical to the high-end version of the original Zenfone 2, with 4GB of RAM and a faster Atom Z3580 processor, with the obvious exception of the greater storage capacity.

Motorola '360S' And '360L' Items With Different Batteries Listed On Anatel In Brazil, Point Towards Multiple Sizes For Next-Gen Moto 360

We've seen a possible early look at the next version of Motorola's Moto 360 watch earlier today, and now it looks like there are new indications of multiple models for the Android Wear line. Anatel, Brazil's federal telecom regulator (the equivalent of the FCC in the US) has listed two new Motorola devices for certification: the 360S and 360L. The product names obviously point to new watch models, but it's the batteries that should really pique your interest. The listing was spotted by 9to5 Google.

In addition to standard radio documentation for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, Anatel lists the 360S with a 270mAh battery and the 360L with a 375mAh battery.

If you prefer HERE Maps to Google Maps for the former's offline functionality, and you live in a few specific (and some other VERY specific) places around the world, you're getting better service starting today. The Nokia-created subsidiary announced a host of improvements on its official blog, most notably in Belarus, Barcelona, Brazil, and even some other places that don't start with B.

Belarusians get improved coverage across the board, including 22,000 kilometers of mapped roads and 11,000 new points of interest. HERE reports that most of this is thanks to local users who have added or corrected information with the HERE Map Creator tool.

LG Announces The G4 Beat, A Mid-Range Alternative To The Flagship G4: 5.2" 1080p Screen, Snapdragon 615, 8MP Rear Camera

If you like the style and utility of the G4 but need something a little easier on your wallet, LG has something to show you. The G4 Beat is a cheaper alternative and the sequel to last year's G3 Beat. You'll have to make some notable compromises to get that price down, and unfortunately it's going to be difficult to gauge whether they're worth it - the company hasn't said precisely how much it will cost, though some markets will be getting the phone later this month.

Here's Google Web Light, The New Bare Bones Version Of Websites For Users On Slow Connections

We heard at Google I/O about Google's plans to help improve the experience of users on slow connections, especially in parts of the world where even 3G speeds are few and far between. They gave us a peek at how the search interface would change under those circumstances to improve those load times. Now, in select markets, the pages you click on will also be optimized to load much faster.

Google's estimates have you loading the page 4x as fast compared to the unaltered version when on a slow connection, with 80% less data. They claim, appealing to webmasters, that this results in 50% more pageviews due to the better experience and lower wait.
