Computex 2015 has started and with it come a few announcements related to tablets. ASUS is on the show’s list of attendees and they came loaded with innovation. The company announced in Taipei a new tablet series dubbed ZenPad, plus the ZenPad S. These products come in 7, 8 and 10.1 inch versions.
In spite of the varied versions, ASUS only focused on the ZenPad S 8.0 and the ZenPad 8.0, detailed below. ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 comes with a metallic case, measuring 6.6 mm in thickness and it weighs 298 grams. The product has a 4:3 aspect and it comes with an interesting two tone design. Its 8 inch screen offers a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution and we’ve also got 4 GB of RAM on board and an Intel 64 bit Atom Z3580 processor,
ZenPad S 8.0 brings 16 or 32 GB of storage, a main 8 MP camera and a front 5 MP shooter, as well as an USB Type C port and a 15.2 Wh battery. This model runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with the Zen UI on top and it’s certainly a looker. Then we’ve got the ASUS ZenPad 8.0, with a more budget approach, but also a switchable back cove. You can replace it with a leather back cover, a Zen Case, as well as the Zen Clutch, the Audio Cover, with 5.1 speakers and Power Case with an extra battery.
The tablet relies on an Intel Atom x3 processor, 1 or 2 GB of RAM and 8 or 16 GB of storage. There’s an 8 inch IPS LCD 1280 x 800 pixel screen upfront, a main 5 MP camera on board and a 15.2 Wh battery included. Android 5.0 is here and the ZenPad 8.0 comes in WiFi and LTE versions. No prices have been announced yet. As far as the other models go, the 10 inch ZenPad 10.1 is expected to have an optional keyboard.
