ASUS not only announced new products at IFA 2013, but also a specs bump for a device we already knew, the ASUS FonePad Note 6. Well, this unit was introduced back in June, but it’s now getting a bunch of extra features.


The device comes with a 6 inch Full HD screen, a stylus for pen input and the ability to make phone calls and surf the web via HSPA+ connections. This time ASUS is going to sell the device as more of a tablet and less of a phone. The design hasn’t changed a lot from June, but the big change is the CPU inside, that’s a more powerful one: a 2 GHz Intel Atom Z2580 dual core CPU.

FonePad Note 6 packs a 1920 x 1080 Super IPS+ screen with 10 point multitouch, it runs Android 4.2 as the OS and has 2 GB of RAM, as well as 16 or 32 GB of storage. There’s a microSDHC card slot on board and ASUS bundled a stylus for writing notes or drawing. At the back we’ve got an 8 MP camera, as well as a front 1.2 MP camera and a 3200 mAh battery powers the whole thing.
