ASUS ZenPad tablet details leak before official debut

It seems ASUS has been hard at work at developing a new line of Android tablets under the name ZenPad. While it has been reported that the company was planning to officially unveil the devices at Computex 2015, but a number of details have made their way out into the wild. First up is the 7-inch ZenPad 7 (model number Z170C), which will see both standard and 3G models. This is followed by the one inch larger ZenPad 8 (Z380KL), which will have the same exterior hardware design, but more power on the inside.

The ZenPad 7 is said to be powered by Intel's Atom x3, with 1GB of RAM, and the choice of either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, expandable with a MicroSD slot. The IPS display has a resolution of 1024x600, meaning no HD.

Other standards include a camera for both the front and back, Bluetooth, WiFi, and a choice of either black or white casing. Pricing remains unconfirmed, but in Europe will supposedly cost 139 euros and 159 euros for the standard and 3G model, respectively.

For the ZenPad 8, it's expected to be powered by the Intel Atom Z3560 or Z3530 Moorefield, with 2GB of RAM and storage options of 8, 16, 32, or 64GB. The MicroSD support, dual cameras, WiFi, and Bluetooth will be on this model as well. The other big improvement will be the screen, with a QXGA resolution of 2048x1536. Pricing and other details will have to wait until the Computex event, taking place June 2-6.
