Asus ZenPad 7 and ZenPad 8 unveil could happen at the end of this month, and shown off after at Computex 2015 (June).
If you’re a regular on PocketDroid or following tech news reports on a daily basis, you might have heard that Asus is looking to launch a new brand in 2015 called the ZenPad, a device we’ve heard of since mid-February, when a forward-looking presentation document from AsusTek Q4 2014 Investors Conference has leaked on the Internet.
Back then, we thought Mobile World Congress 2015 would be the perfect stage for Asus to launch the ZenPad series, however, it didn’t happen, so our next best guess is Computex 2015. In fact, FCC listed a couple of devices recently presumably the ZenPad 7, which will be available in two variants apparently: model number Z170CG and Z171CG, both feature WSVGA 7″ display, which is powered by Intel’s Atom X3 (codename SoFIA) processor, with 1Gb of RAM, 8 or 16GB of built-in storage.
The other one, the ZenPad 8 (model number Z380KL and Z380C) could feature an 8″ display with QXGA (2,048 x 1,536 pixels) screen resolution Intel Atom Z3530 or Z3560 (codename Moorefield), which will be available in 2 or 4GB of RAM and with 16/32/64 GB of internal storage. The ZenPad 8 is said to sport a 4,000 mAh battery. Asus says that the ZenPad series will be “empowering luxury for everyone,” whatever that means.
The ZenPad 7 will be available in Europe for €140 to €160, keep in mind that this is the affordable version. No word on the ZenPad 8 price tag for now.
