Verizon just debuted a new ASUS tablet in its portofolio, the ZenPad Z8s model, priced at $250. This is a 7.9 incher with a pretty good resolution and specs are in the midrange spectrum. This device has 16 GB of storage and 3 GB of RAM.
The screen offers a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution and the slate’s body takes a unibody metal approach. We also get some pretty good cameras for a tablet, with a 13 MP back shooter and a 5 MP one upfront too. The OS of choice is Android 7.0 Nougat and it relies on a hexa core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, clocked at 1.8 GHz. The only drawback here seems the storage, which could be more generous than 16 GB to be honest.
A 4680 mAh battery is also in the mix here, with a promised usage time of up to 12 hours. As far as pricing goes, the product goes outright for just $250. New customers on Verizon cam pick up the device on a discounted $150 on a 2 year contract and current customers can renew their contract for special offers. There’s also the option of a payment plan for 2 years, with $10.41 a month.
Verizon actually added two ASUS products to its lineup this week, with the other one being the ASUS ZenFone AR.
