Mystery ASUS Tablet With Android 7.0 Nougat Leaked via GFXBench Benchmark
ASUS usually keeps its tablet launches for Computex and some for IFA, but we may see new models sooner than expected. For example, a mystery ASUS slate has just leaked via GFXBench and it lists some of its features, including the fact that it runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.
The mystery slate has a 9.6 inch 2048 x 1536 pixel screen and may well be a rival for the future iPads. It’s also listed with a dodeca core chipset, clocked at 2.1 GHz. This 12 core CPU has an Imagination Technlogies PowerVR Rogue GX6250 GPU (that’s a mouthful), as well as 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. A 7 MP back camera is listed, possibly an 8 MP shooter in real life, plus a 4.7 MP front cam.
Specs could change once the device goes official and it’s interesting to see a 12 core chip from MediaTek on an ASUS tablet. The two have worked together before, but not on tablets. This feels like an upper midrange device, which may end up as a ZenPad maybe. We expect a debut at Computex 2017, the latest and perhaps a brand new Zen UI on top.
