ASUS is prepping a new family of Android-powered devices that will be covered under the name ZenPad. According to reports, the company plans to unveil the new hardware at Computex 2015.
One of the new pieces of kit is the ASUS ZenPad 7 (Z170C) that also comes in a 3G version (Z170CG). The two tablets have been spotted on some online stores in Russia, sporting a similar design to that of the FonePads. The new ZenPad 7 will be powered by the Intel Atom x3, will have 1GB of RAM and 8GB/16GB configurations for internal storage. As with earlier hardware, ASUS will include MicroSD expansion support.
The IPS display will run at 1024x600, so there's no HD playback, but there are two cameras, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Color options are black and white. According to pre-order details on the Russian stores, the ZenPad 7 will be available in July for 139 euro and 159 euro for the 3G variant.
Next up is the ASUS ZenPad 8 (P01M), which passed through FCC certification. According to reports, the new 8-inch tablets (Z380KL and Z380C) will share the design of the ZenPad 7, but will be powered by more advanced components. We're looking at the Intel Atom Z3560 or Z3530 Moorefield, 2GB of RAM and 8/16/32/64GB configurations for internal storage. The display has a QXGA resolution of 2048x1536.
We'll of course be present at this year's Computex event to bring you all the latest news from the floor. Hopefully, we'll be able to relay more details on the new ASUS ZenPad 7 and ZenPad 8.
