ASUS ZenPad Z8 Affordable Android Tablet Debuts on Verizon Exclusively, With Snapdragon 650 CPU, 7.9 Inch Screen
ASUS launched one more tablet today, after the spread it offered at Computex 2016 and that model comes exclusively to Verizon. It’s dubbed ASUS ZenPad Z8 and it’s a 7.9 incher with an IPS panel and a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution.
Inside we find the hexa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor, as well as the Adreno 510 GPU, that made a fine team on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro, even beating the Xperia Z5 in some benchmarks. Anyhow, the slate packs 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, although a 3 GB/32 GB combo would have been sexier. An 8 megapixel camera takes care of optics here, while upfront there’s a 2 MP shooter.
Other features available here are the front dual speakers with DTS HD support and then there’s the USB Type C connector, 4G LTE, WiFi and Bluetooth. The device weighs 320 grams and its battery provides up to 13 hours of use. ASUS ZenPad Z8 can be ordered today from Verizon’s site for $249 in full price, or you can pay $149.99 on a two year contract of $10.41 a month. Availability is slated a week from now.
The OS is Android Marshmallow.
