Not only the Taiwanese company’s smartphones, accessories and smartwatches are getting the Zen treatment, but their tablets too — Asus’ new tablets dubbed ZenPad 7 and ZenPad 8 are making the rounds in cyberspace weeks before its expected unveiling next month at Computex.
Named after the sizes of the tablets, both the ZenPads 7 and 8 are reminiscent of the company’s PadFone design, and each have two variations in tow, represented by almost-hard-to-decipher model numbers seen in their other products. The ZenPad 7 (Z170C) has a seven-inch IPS display with a resolution under HD at 1024×600, and sports an Intel x3 chip, 1GB RAM, and expandable 8GB and 16GB versions. A 3G-enabled version (Z170CG) is also present. The ZenPad
Meanwhile, the ZenPad 8 (Z380KL and Z380C) is — you guessed it — an eight-inch tablet with a QXGA 2048×1536 resolution. It’s also equipped with the better internals, as it apparently sports an Intel Atom Z5360 or Moorefield chip, 2GB of RAM, and four internal storage variations: 8GB, 16GB, 32Gb, and 64GB.
These two tablets are expected to be launched in June when Asus kicks off this year’s Computex technology show in Taipei.
